I was just wondering if anyone is running an Arrington CAI and how they like it? Any advice on it is welcomed too. Thanks.

I don't think they have any other color filter but i think you can get a cover for it I heard.

My opinion on any CAI that pulls air from the engine bay is worthless.

Higher IAT temps = slower launches etc.

Arrington has a nice design. They locate the IAT sensor away from the engine block and radiator fans which will reduce sensor heatsoak. To maximize the potential out of the new intake, you'll need to tune for WOT with a wideband.

The key to underhood intakes is to create separation between the radiator fan air and the air entering the filter so you don't suck in the 4-5 seconds of underhood, heated air. The temperature of plastic/metal near filter will affect the true temperature of air entering the filter. Also the material around the IAT sensor will affect the reading as it will absorb heat as well.

I haven't found the cover (or at least a specific one for the Arlington), but I did find out that the filter can be dyed a different color, or be left out completely for a $20 discount. Not sure which was I'll go, but either way I'm going with the Arrington CAI. I'll probably order it tommorrow once they open.

My issue with most so called cold air intakes is they pull more heated air from under the hood than a stock air box does and I just don't see the benefit in them for the money invested and the Arrington doesn't look like it would be any different. It looks kewl though.

I have it & love it. Don't have any #s for you, but definitely felt & sounded better even before changing the tune.

Since I have the 3G Customz covers, I had to 3M tape the mount to the coolant tank cover. I eventually am going to make a custom bracket & plan to isolate it from the engine bay.

Here are a couple crappy cell phone pics.

Man...the more and more I see a clean engine bay, the more I'm lovin it. I think that's the look I'm going to end up going with under there. :guiness:
