2005 GTO Cold Air Intake

Can anyone tell me if you have been able to purchase a CAI for your 2005 GTO?

I just received one from parts&accesories.com who originally advertised it on their web site as being for the 2005 6.0L however when it came in it was for the 2004 5.7L. I went back to the website today and they no longer list it for the 2005 6.0L?? They will let me return it which is great but what I really want is the proper CAI for my car.

This CAI was made by AEM and they told me today they don't have one yet but keep checking back.

Thanks!

Sure, you can get a K&N now, or a Lingenfelter (if I spelled that right) for the 6L LS2. Oh, and be careful. You may want to read the posts here about the LS2 with a CAI. Some have experienced engine problems (performance/tune) after installing them. I am going to wait until I can get a tuner on it before I attempt mine.

Thanks for the reply JMVorbeck!

I was just checking out the Lingenfelter CAI before seeing your post.

I have read some of the posts in here about issues related to CAI and most appear to be related to heat? The Lingenfelter CAI appears to be relatively sealed from engine bay heat which should alleviate most of this problem.

What other issues have you heard of or seen?

Well, they are all posted here just do a search for "CAI". Some others have had a problem with the engine running too rich and some power degredation. I do agree that the Lingenfelter looks like the nicest design with the full box and hood seal. Its the one I want. LS2FAST seems to be having no trouble. Just read through the threads, it scared me off until the tuners are available.

Thanks. Funny, both you, and the photo on thier site have the rail covers off. 2 ?'s..
1. You have had NO problems at all with yours?
2. Can you hear a difference when driving with the Lingenfelter? I am talking about the good ol 4 barrel "MOWWWWWW" when you open the throttle?
