Not Another CAI Thread!!!!
I know this has been beat to death on here and I have read all the threads.
Martin is about to Tune all my Stage 3 work and I want to make sure everything is the way I want it before he sets the tune. I had his CAI installed and was not a fan of the air sucking sound you could hear constantly. That's not the sound I want from my little Sky. Maybe a muscle V8 but not my little 4 cylinder. I put the factory air box back in and much prefer the quiet lack of vacuum sound. I even bought the K&N filter for the factory airbox, but didn't like that sound either. I have read on here that engine HP isn't helped by putting a CAI on the redline.
My question is:
With the Upgraded Larger Wheel Turbo, am I going to be loosing any HP possibility by running the factory airbox and filter rather than a CAI?
