Cold air intake

Any true CAI systems on the market for the 2012-2013 models yet?


I can't find much of anything in terms of information

Well he wanted "true" CAI so only the AEM takes the air filter out of the engine bay.

That being said I am not sure if the actual air temp is lower or the aem versus the heat shielded k&n or steeda.

Your second choice for "true". My personal favorite.

Dynos showed yours was better at low rpm than the K&N typhoon intake but was not as good in upper rpms.

That being said I have it in mine with a steeda for best of both.
