really the Superchips and Diablo Sport Predator are the top 2 tuners. K&N and AFE are both good.

I personally just bought the SC and have a K&N Drop in filter. Ill prolly upgrade to a DIY CAI with a K&N Filter. All the CAI are about the same, you're paying for the name.

I like the DiabloSport Predator but for transmission tuning, I hear the SuperChips units are better.

All CAI's pretty much flow the same amount and provide more CFM than your intake manifold and combustion chambers can use. There are a LOT of choices. What you don't want to do is go cheap and get one with a marginal filter that will come apart and get sucked into the engine! I like the AFE partially closed box type systems but the open cone (AIRAID, K&N, etc...) or fully enclosed units (like the Volant) are good units as well.

Frankly, there is no "best" CAI. The name brands seem to all have the right quality.

that is a lot. You can make one for under 100$. They are pretty much the same. Long, smooth, rounded plastic tube with a filter.

That's the wrong link.

This is what you need for 3G.

Sounds like you want a vararam intake. It has hoses that run down to behind the front bumper to suck in cool air.

For the best trans tuning in a handheld programmer you want a SC. You can program every shift point up and down as well as adjust your tm.
