CAI's work on some cars and don't on others. It depends on how restrictive the stock setup is. Alot of newer cars get no real power increase anymore because the factory systems flow more than enough. Some cars don't even get any power at all from removing the intake piping all together and running no filter. The JK CAI's show power gains but its the last 1k RPM's and even there it isn't much. I don't know about you but I don't bounce mine of the rev limiter too much so those gains would give me nothing because until then they net no power gains and that's been proven too. I like the sound of a good intake and a good exhaust but its not worth the money to me to get a better intake sound alone. I'll spend that money on my car because that smooth I6 M3 sounds far better than my JK no matter what I do to the Jeep.
