    Ditto, while I realize just adding a CAI isn't going to do much for HP gains I am wondering if the CAI enhances the "turbo whine" any significant amount? I do like the turbo whine on my 16 KR but wish it was a bit louder...thx!

    PS and I like the looks of the CAI as well and easy to change back to stock if necessary...

    Just saw this thread. Had one of the local speed shops here in the Baltimore area install my oil separator about a month ago and asked about putting a CAI unit on mine. He said all the brands are good, however he suggested a company called Full Race and all their units are custom made in their shop. I ordered mine on March 12th and they said it takes about 3-4 weeks. I’ll give an update when they install mine.

    Well, I've installed the AFE Magnum stage 2 CAI + Scorcher tuner. Honestly, I'm not sure I feel or hear much difference - but it looks pretty under the hood.

    MBRP has some quiet high flow exhaust system coming for these. This will be perfect for performance, yet cancels out the high pitch/tone. Hit up Jesse@MBRP.

    Actually, now that it's a little warmer here in NJ and I've put windows down, I hear it. I am going to remove the AFE tune and put JMS Boost and SPD adapters - should perform and sound better then. Will let you know.

    These cais are all the same man. I wouldn’t split hairs over this mod any difference in flow is neglible. I went with s and b and very happy
