I have been thinking about a cold air intake as well. I was always brought up that the louder the exhaust the better!!!.....
Now, my question is this. I am hearing from all of you about how the cold air intakes make things louder. Does a cold air intake make the exhaust note louder as well as the sound of the intake pulling in air?....I dont want the intake sounds to overtake the exhaust sounds.

From what I have been reading here it seems like the airaid is one of the loudest. I also have read that it is better to get the molded rubber intake tubes over the metal ones because the metal ones heat up faster and you end up getting less HP from the metal ones.


Anyway, I stop in here most every evening to see what things are being tossed around here....It is always good interesting conversation.

With the Volant CAI there is no increase in engine or exhaust noise.

Think about this. The tube on the typical CAI is only about 15-18 inches long. Even at an idle there is a great amount of air moving through that short span very fast. Air just doesn't stay in the tube long enough to heat up unless there is super, SUPER heated air in the engine compartment - way past a temperature that wouldn't have caused other major issues by then. I really don't think composition matters in regard to heat in this case. But I do believe how smooth the inside of the tube is affects velocity and volume to a small degree and might have some affect on power. Strictly theory on my part but I think I'm on track.

I had originally ordered a K&N but they sent the wrong one. When I went back to exchange it, the Airaid is what they had. Supposedly the K&N was not actually ready for release yet. Bought the intake in Jan

IMHO, heat sink will probably occur no matter what intake you run in stop and go city driving. In the same manner, heat sink will not be a factor in virtually any intake during HWY travel.
