Cold Air Induction?

This is a discussion on Cold Air Induction? within the Firebird / WS6 forums, part of the Vehicle Specific category; I was just wondering is the Cold Air Induction for about 150$ from SLP worth it or would the money ...

    Cold Air Induction?

    I was just wondering is the Cold Air Induction for about 150$ from SLP worth it or would the money be better saved for Headers?
    Thanks

    Nothing from SLP is worth the money.

    Well that's what i was thinking my friend runs a set of Ebay Stainless Steel 1 3/4 x 3" headers he got from ebay for only like 150$ also. Anyone ever ran any ebay parts are they worth it? cuz i was gonna do that or buy the pacesetter brand but this are about 1/2 the price i just hope there not 1/2 the quality.

    There is a link you can look at for reviews on the E-bay headers.

    If you don't trust e-bay, the next best thing would probably be Pacesetter (quality to price ratio).

    eventually you need to change the lid as well, i say get the cold air intake then worry about headers
    if your not sold on SLP look into the volant cold air intake, alot of people that have it are very happy with it

    Save for headers and do the free ram air mod.

    One of the best mods for the money I made was a Cold air intake, a noticable response right off the bat. And it's a whole lot easier than Installing headers. Though i've done that too.

    Same, didn't notice much with my cold air except maybe a little harder pull

    Have to disagree with you there
    Dont know if you have an LT1 or a 3800, but headers on an LS1 do more than a cold air any day

    +1 I would say probably 3-4 times as much.

    My Lt1 responded very well with cold air induction, the stock exhaust manifolds on an LT1 flow pretty well up to 350 HP. or so i've been told by people that know about that sort of thing. LS1's may be different, I'm just a poor boy, can't afford an ls1

    Well, 98-99 LS1s have the most restrictive exhaust manifold of their generation. Only reason i have the SLP CAI is because it was free.
