cold air intakes

OK guys looking for a cold air intakes for the gtp. what should i look at ? should i look at the fender well intakes ? or showed i look at the box type like the slp type that keeps the stock look. or showed i look at the thrasher intake system. nice thing about the box type is they can be hook up to a ram-air hood at a later date if i go that route. must of them are showing a 13+ hp gain

Don't believe advertised hp gains for anything.

Thrasher and SLP are the experts for your car so I'd go with them.

Ding, ding, ding. TKO in the first page of the thread.

I wouldn't fight the info.

Anyone can make an intake, the eBay chinese knock-offs are proof of that. Limit your decisions to either an intake from Thrasher or SLP. Then you won't have to worry about anything else.

And please don't use the same discretion you used when asking about exhaust.

Exclamation

its better not to give water a way to enter your engine,and ading one of these babys, iT's just another way to interduce pistons to H20 [well if not placed in the right location]
when they test these cold air intakes they do everything in there power to add horsepower,

Are you able bodied enough to kick yourself in the face?

no you don't want huge amounts of H20 in your engines.

yes if its place right you want get water into Ur engine. Ding Ding.

plus what u think water/methanol INJ is. mist water is good into the intake charge with added methanol mixed

No intake in the world would get you 13hp. An all-function intake should be in an enclosed area to create a pocket of cold air coming from outside.
