Exclamation intakes?

an intake is an intake is an intake. They are all the same.

K&N would probably be the best route as they offer a drycharger for their filters, another route would be AEM since they have the non-oiled air filters. Don't know about Injen though, you would probably have to buy a filter from AEM to keep the contaminates out of the engine.

Why doesn't anyone ever suggest the GMPP SRI INTAKE? I have one and it performes well. I don't have it on my car currently because I'm looking to get rid of my cobalt for something newer. But it was a nice intake.

not a big fan of GM performance parts. i have an AEM CAI and I love it. but i am thinking about switching to the injen simply for the fact that it can be a CAI or a SRI. but i do know that the injen uses an oiled filter in which case i'll be keeping my AEM dryflo if i decide to switch. but ima is right an intake is an intake, you're gonna get about the same results from any good named part.

Mods:Exterior 5% tinted all around w/ eyebrow, SS/SC hi rise spoiler, SS/SC front bumper, BSA 17" wheels black w/ machined lip, Falken ze912 rubber, cross-driled slotted rotors.

The GMPP intake is good, but is not as good as others.. I have seen dyno's with the GMPP and there was not much improvement.

Th the OP I would suggest getting the K&N + a hydrashield. I know it won't really be getting wet, but the hydrashield will help keep your filter cleaner longer.

the gmpp is great because its made for cobalts, easy to install and i think it makes a noticeable difference.

If I slapped an K&N filter on my GMPP would it be just as good as a K&N intake?

The K&N uses a velocity stack inside the filter to allow them to use a bigger filter. So it would take a few modifications. Also the elbow going in to the throttle body is different.
