Which Intake?

I'm lookin for a cold air intake for my '03 V6 Coupe-
Should I go with the Injen or wait for the K & N Typhoon to come out for the '03? or the Iceman? Any opinions would help- Thanks

well, i dont have a 7th gen, but really, its gonna be similar for all cars. i would go with the Injen, or Iceman with cold air extension. my experince with K&N intakes is that its just an adapter for your stock tube. The Typhoons are just overpriced and not as worth it. Injen is good just like AEM, but the Iceman with cold air extension, from what i understand, is plastic, which wont get as hot as the metal AEM or Injen

I'm from Chicago would you recommend a short-ram or CAI. We get quite a bit of rain and I am afraid of hydro-lock

First of all let me thank you all for your feedback - but did anyone notice on the dyno sheet that the stock intake was tested at 11:00 a.m. (a hotter part of the day) and the Injen intake was tested around 6:00 p.m. , a much cooler part of the day (colder air equals denser air and more oxygen). The temperatre change alone is bound to increase horsepower. What do you think the power gained from the CAI unit versus the replacement of the filter element alone would be?

Thanks again for your time!

If you really want an aftermarket intake I recommend getting the Injen CAI and use it during the dry seasons and then switch over to the stock intake with a K&N Drop-In filter during the wet season.

What they most likely did was let the engine run till it was nice and heat soaked before they did the "baseline" run, then waited 7 hours for the engine to cool down before doing the "gains" run. That REALLY skews the results of the dyno tests in favor of whatever part they're trying to sell.

On another note, if you're from Mobile like your timeslip says, I would definitely recommend getting either a short ram or a CAI with a bypass valve. You know how downtown gets when it rains. Especially since they're isn't a "dry season".
