    This probably is a subject that has been beaten into the ground, but what is the best CAI? Is it AFE, BWoody, or K&N? Which one actually gives an increase in horsepower and doesn't throw any codes? Please give me some valid and factual opinions. Also, I am thinking of going with the Diablosport PCM and Trinity Tuner/Tune. Thanks.

    Many many threads, general consensus is that the stock intake is so far the best

    Stock unless you are going to do custom tune.

    Slippery slope making a CAI useful in the performance department. That will take additional time and money with potential impacts to warranty.

    When it comes to a CAI I wouldn't be too worried about a warranty. A CAI won't really void a warranty, you could have a dealer give you crap for it, but for them to deny a claim based o a CAI or exhaust etc being installed is pretty slim. Now if you had a CAI like the K&N where it sucked in a ton of water or something, that is one thing, but a regular CAI like AFE etc, you'd be ok. But I do agree with above, that unless you mod the car to NEED more air then the stock box can do, and get custom tunes etc, that's where the difference will be. But if your just doing a Diablo, exhaust etc, you'll be more then fine with the stock box. I have the AFE installed still, I "might" take it out and just save it, but I do like its look better, the sound is great etc, so who knows.

    Once computer makes adjustments for new configuration you'll be lucky to maintain stock.

    Did you baseline it before the CAI add?

    Without a tune, stock is best!

    Give it time and any short term gains will be gone once computer adjusts for addition flow. Without tuning [performance curves to utilize changes] all it be for nought but it does look nice.

    Fashion over function
