    Question Best Cold Air Kit??

    Im looking at 2 items the 00-02 LS1 SLP "FlowPac" Cold-Air Package and the 98-02 LS1 Trans Am Volant Cold Air Induction. They both claim 20+ hp but the volant claims 40+ pounds of torque! just wanted to get some input before a buy one. I heard the flowpac's bad for water getting in bc it pulls air from behind the fog lights..........

    Thanks

    I don't believe many have that SLP FlowPac installed. As for the Volant, I used to have it installed but reverted back to stock lid ( Vortech SuperCharger ).

    I would just go with aftermarket AirLid myself.

    avoid the hype; get a lid and the use the rest of the $$ towards something that makes real HP.

    If you want someting more exotic than a lid, look at the K&N FIPK if you can get a good price on it (PM me if you want a tip on where to look). In reality there isn't much of a difference to the wheels but the FIPK looks really cool IMO and has no water related issues. If you plan to add a S/C later you won't want to do the FIPK since you will have to go back to a more stock induction setup like Tman mentioned in post #2 but if you want to stay N/A then it would work famously.

    that's the under-hood totally open filter right? If that's the one, pass pass pass. It's a "hot air kit"; draws all air from under the hood. It's worth solid MPH to take it off in favor of a lid. That's why no one runs those anymore.

    I am talking about this one:

    the volant is about the best of all the cai kits.
    the kit is sealed.
