1st Known SKY RedLine Owner!
In all honesty CAI's don't do much for performance, its more for the sound than anything.There continues to be talk of a CAI for the GXP and Redline. I understood that the intake charge comes from an inlet at the front of the car. Why would anybody want to pick up air from the inside of the engine compartment when you would already be taking in air from a high pressure point at the front of the car?
I can post a pic of it later for ya but her eis the AZ number you are asking about.Pitcom - can you post pics of your window sticker? Also, in one of the lower corners of your window sticker, can you tell us what the number says?
(near or next to an "AZ" - I was told this is roughly the sequence number of your individual vehicle since they first started building this platform car at wilmington, so the last 6 of this number should indicate how many "vehicles that were ever assigned a VIN" have been produced)
This correlates with the official GM production numbers.I can post a pic of it later for ya but her eis the AZ number you are asking about.
I wouldn't mind seeing a nice aftermarket one myself. Not really sure about the effects myself, but i'm sure somone will answer.While we are on the subject, has anyone thought about removing the plastic engine cover? I really like the look of the engine below it (I have seen photos of it before). I have been wondering if this would cause any problems with heat or void the warrantee? Anyone have any input?
This was my thought as well, but if they have designed the engine specs to work around this, removing the panel may make the engine have issues in the winter.....when it is really cold and the engine is trying to keep warm, etc.Should actually keep the engine cooler, I would imagine.
Correct, we've had some SolForum members remove it and watch temp values. They're usually a degree or two lower then average. however engine noise will be louder since the cover is primarily a noise deadening agent.Should actually keep the engine cooler, I would imagine.
