Default Recommendations? CAI

Thanks.

I read through the threads, but none of them said anything about the aircharger being better then the 77 kit.

They are both about equally as bad. They aren't on those threads because they would be considered the lower performing intakes on the market. K&N has pioneered good filters, but not enough effort goes into their designs and only the loyalist grab them. I would get the BFI, as that is the most popular and best built intake on the market at this time.

Otherwise, good luck in your choice.

thats because the ones in the thread are better than the "aircharger" and "77 kit" Once again, these are mass produced CAIs(but you would know that reading the other CAI threads)
go BFI, or Volant

I love the BFI so much that I convinced Lance to let me work for him in supporting it!

True flow went out of business, what is left on the shelves is what they are selling - no warranty to back them up.

I was informed by High Horse Performance, the best CAI is the AFE Stage II. I will show on the dyno what they claim for the product. HHP highly recommends them for best performance. They are also price competitive. The K&N kits do not even come close to the performance numbers they claim their kit put outs, most engine builders will concure on this.
