The injen seems to be quite a bit nicer to tune... It's also only 2mm larger at the MAS housing, so the car runs a little less lean from the start with this CAI.
As a side note, we make more power by just cutting the Injen off before the pipe goes into the fender. You can get a consistant 2-3hp gain from hacking the injen. Makes you wonder what good a CAI is right?
Hey Nathan is that 2 or 3hp over the CAI intake or over the stock setup or over the Resonator removal as in stage 1? Also when you say 2 or 3hp increase is that on an otherwise stock system or one of the stage setups (obviously makes a difference).
Also just for reference do you know roughly home much difference there is between the resonator/hack compared to the Injen/hack (shortened) on something like the stage 2 kit. Also, if you convert a standard stage 2 setup over to the injen/hack intake setup is there a new map for this?
Oh, and I might as well also ask about the TurboXS intake in the works. Is this going to be "knock-off" of the shortened Injen intake or will it be a little different in design?
