Cold Air Intake

I know its been discussed many of times, but im looking on doing sum upgrades to the gto, first i want the best cold air intake for around 300. I know the k&n is nice but it claims 14 hp where the volant claims 18 hp. Whats the best intake.

Yea this has been beaten up.....

I have had a few brands...Volant, K/N, Airraid, AEM, S & B..

Have to say I like the AEM and the Volant....The volant was awesome on the 06 goat just ask the Judge..he has mine now....The volant is a nice enclosed system that also offers a dry filter like AEM...

I have the K&N CAI and it is good. I never put in on the dyno afterwords however another guy did his and it showed 14 additional HP at the wheels. I have a 2006 GTO and it cost around $263.00 parts only.

2006 Cyclone M/T..K&N CAI.

My KnN works good. My only other mod is a JBA catback and I raced an 01 Z28 Camaro and pulled on him fairly nicely. I doubt there is much difference in intakes, it is all preference. KnN was a breeze to install and has a nice sound to my car.

Again AEM or Volant.. I love my new Volant with PowerCore filter which is a dry filter like AEM. The enclosed box fit like a glove..
