    You're probably one of the few who would use Lithium batteries on cars. Lol. The only problem with Li batteries is that they tend to blow up if they are wired wrong or if they get very wet.

    So i was reading around :shadyhat: and a "racer" is bashing the intake after 2 strip runs on 2 different days. Guess people want the attention and need to bash companies.

    I guess the car only had the Injen CAI as a mod. What did he/she expect? A double digit hp increase? Lol.

    He's saying high 14's with the stock intake, then he couldn't break the 15's with the Injen. Funny sleepingpanda didn't post any of that over here?? Did you see what Injen posted on FB?

    i didnt post here because i barely go on this site. look at my post count compared to the other site. plus i dont feel like getting into it on BOTH sites. Its annoying enough with just the other site.

    Basically i wasn't expecting much from the intake. But with the HP at the wheels claims they made, i figured id get some improvement at the track. 10-13 consistent hp at the wheels, is a big number. so i figured id knock off a tenth, or gain 1-2mph trap speed. If not ill at least TIE my best time with ease. That wasn't the case. Made 14 runs. Couldnt get better than a 15.0.

    I figured id let everyone know my findings. now suddenly im this big jerk that is trying to deface a company. That isnt the case at all. It's just that whenever someone asked people about the intake. People would reply "OMGZZZZ ITS LIKE A WHOLE NEW CAR! FEELS SOOOOO MUCH FASTER" umm ok. And i agree, the car FELT a little better. sounded beastly. So i figured id go to the track again. Turns out I couldn't even tie my best time. Which leads me to believe this intake adds nothing but sound. So I decided to post my personal experience with the intake.


    But thats my opinion. Injen decided to publicly bash me. And all the likes and comments they get on their facebook by their cult following of fanboys must make them sleep better or something.

    I honestly had no problem with Injen whatsoever. It's an intake. it CANT add that much power. But they claimed "consistent 10-13hp gain and up to 20hp at a certain point in the RPM range" Those of you that are familiar with tuning know that 10-13hp at the wheels is nothing to sneeze at. Thats impressive. And should be measurable with a 1/4 mile run.

    Then they did the Facebook thing. lol.

    Now I really want to extensively test this intake before i sell it.

    You know what your elevation is by chance? You going to do dyno runs with the intake on/off on the same day to see what your results are?

    Actually it was a wednesday. I made FOUR passes. with the stock intake. got a 15.1 and then 3 consecutive 14.8's

    then i installed the intake. went to the track the following wednesday. made FOURTEEN passes. Even letting the car cool down for a while. And i couldnt get better than a 15.0. I couldn't even get a better trap speed.

    by the way, The weather was damn near identical. So your making it sound like i went to the track on a 45* day, made one single run, then went to the track on a 90* day and made one single run.

    Get your facts straight before you type nonsense. stop trying to make me sound like an idiot.

    I simply tested the intake out in the 1/4 mile. Because I personally drive my car on the street, not on a dyno. I wanted to see if it made any REAL acceleration gains.

    So excuse me for trying to inform people before they spend their cash. I dont believe its Injens fault. I just dont think this engine responds well to a CAI. I think the stock intake manifold needs to go.

    Ill try. but that just costs me even more money. and for what? so people can say there must be something wrong with my car? or something wrong with the dyno? or some other ridiculous excuse.

    I'm done. Next time i test something out, I am going to keep it to myself. Even if i find out something dumb like Torquing the spark plugs to a certain spec adds 100hp to the wheels. Everyone can kiss my ***. it will be my secret. lol. im done.

    What if I paid for your runs so the dyno results could be posted here?

    Cool story BRO. Buy the intake. in fact buy any intake. Go to the track and see if it helped real world acceleration. Instead of just calling people haters. lmao.

    Or are you that ricer guy that just buys whats 'cool' and then wonders why he keeps gettin SPANKED at the track. poser.
