K&N CAI for 04 GTO

Just installed the K&N CAI on my O4 and just wanted to tell everyone it Rocks !! I have not had a tune yet but very much notice increased power and the motor seems to spin up faster. I have 5K miles now and love this thing !!

What can I expect from a tune and what do they actually do? Anyone know?

It depends on what you tell them to do when they tune your car, most of the time they adjust timing / fuel, change shift points and pressure, fan controls, etc. it's really too much to list out at any rate you should expect 20 or so if you only have a cai....

From what I've read, there's not much of a performance difference between the aftermarket CAIs. New Era however, looks great IMO and is under 200 bones.

the intake that I am going to put on my GTO consistantly dynoes 18RWHP over the K&N, those numbers are off of a mustang and LS1. Gain with a tune is around 40-50rwhp in most cases, we are just waiting to be able to tune to get numbers for the LS2. Those numbers might sound high but they are NO BS

I'm not flaming you, but there is NO WAY you will get that much rwhp from a CAI and a tune. You'll be lucky to get that with LT headers/CAI/and tune.

I was sceptica myself untill I witnessed it on mustang and camero ss, the mustang put out 36rwhp and the ss was 41 rwhp, and both were bone stock. The CAI flow's around double the CFM that the K&N CAI, but like I said as soon as we can tune I will post numbers and my dyno sheets, hopefully the preditor will be out within a month

I recommend a New Era for the 04's (not just because I sell them) and a Lingenfelter for the 05's........

Braman, What intake are you planning on using? Who makes it?

GTODEALER, Why do you suggest the Lingenfelter for the 05?

Because every other CAI is loosing power......including the New Era....don't let anyone yank your chain, btw the New Era's for the 04's are on sale again for 189.00!!!
