I looked at the Rousch, but didn't like the design of open top inside the hot engine compartment. I went with the S&B because of the closed design and that it pulls all of the air from outside using the stock lower part of the air box with their larger intake snorkel. It was a great fit with easy to install instructions.

S@B with cleanable filter. Quality is outstanding, I also added a prefilter sock.

We have some vendors on site, 5 Star is top notch, their tech and service departments are outstanding.

Was the engine noise noticeably louder after the S&B CAI install? Looks like a really nice setup.

Yes a little louder but not as bad as an open airbox. Throttle response and acceleration were noticable, though you still have naysayers. I went with a Gibson catback, dual tip pass side. Couldnt hear CAI after that. Im running a 5 Star 93 octane street tune and its a great combo for a daily driver. Was getting around 13.5mpg city now 12.6mpg city. 93 Performance tune is insane but get around 9.6mpg city and tend to drive it alot faster with that tune. The S&B performance increase by itself is noticable. I have the 6.2L. Dont know about tje 3.5l all Ive read is that it throws codes with almost any mod. Emissions strictor and computers smarter. Would be nice to have 2 turbos on the 6.2L, hell 850hp all day 😙

S&B and AFE intakes are my 2 goto companies when it comes to quality and performance.
