    Some people use a chassis dyno to test the difference a Cold Air Inductions Camaro6 air intake system, but the guys at Bad Bowtie Productions have taken things a step further and put us to the test on a drag strip. This tests the true improvement in acceleration, which is one of the main reasons people buy a cold air intake system, along with the desire to have a throaty, performance air-intake sound, improved looks under the hood, and a lifetime, re-usable air filter.

    The Bad Bow Tie 2016 Camaro SS test mule had no other modifications, not even a performance tune on the ECU. They took the car to Gateway Motorsports Park near St. Louis to do the dragstrip testing. Watch the video to see the car in action, and the quicker dragstrip results they achieved using a Cold Air Inductions system.

    To baseline the Camaro, they made three back-to-back passes. The results were:

    12.032 seconds at 116.54 mph

    12.017 seconds at 117.87 mph

    11.995 seconds at 117.72 mph

    This gave the 6th Gen an average elapsed time (e/t) of 12.015 and average quarter-mile speed of 117.38 – good numbers for a bone stock Camaro.

    After letting the car cool for an hour, the Bad Bowtie Productions crew got busy, and with basic hand tools install the Cold Air Inductions Camaro 6 system in about 15 minutes. Once finished, they took the car back to the starting line

    The results:

    11.919 seconds at 117.82 mph

    11.948 seconds at 117.03 mph

    11.932 seconds at 117.81 mph

    The average e/t of 11.933 is nearly a tenth of a second quicker! If you’re not a lifetime drag racer, that may not sound like a huge improvement, but to give you an idea, you typically have to add 10 horsepower to the engine or remove 100 pounds from the vehicle in order to pick up a tenth of a second on the e/t. That’s a great gain, especially from something as simple as installing a Cold Air Inductions intake system that doesn’t require any other engine modifications, not even a performance tune on the ECU.

    It’s easy to get confused when shopping for a cold-air intake for your Chevy or GMC truck. There are a lot of choices, and every company claims that theirs is the best. We know you care about your truck. You want to make the smartest purchase for every upgrade you make. That’s why we put together this list of facts that you should consider before buying a cold-air intake. Things that we know matter to truck owners such as true torque and horsepower gains, sound, quality and durability.

    1. Real Power Testing. First, insist on seeing the horsepower and torque curve for your specific model of pickup with the engine that’s in your truck. Without it, you can’t be sure that your application was thoroughly engineered and tested. Some companies advertise a generic power gain which isn’t really your truck and engine package. Cold Air Inductions uses a chassis dyno (in addition to a state-of-the-art flow bench and computer simulation) to develop every system. Cold Air Inductions Inc.’s dyno measures power at the tires, taking into consideration all the variables in a vehicle and drivetrain. The horsepower and torque-curve information provided by Cold Air Inductions Inc. is for the system for your specific model of vehicle and for that same vehicle’s engine.
    2. Real Power Gains. Even when another company does share its before and after power curve, you have to look at how the testing was done. All Cold Air Inductions Inc.’s kits are designed as closed systems. This means we don’t use the top of the hood to seal our air boxes. We think this is more precise for air and heat control, and it also makes a big difference in claimed power numbers. If a competitor tests its open system with the hood open (meaning the air box is not sealing against the hood, so it is able to suck in more cool air during the test), the dyno will record higher horsepower and torque numbers than you’ll ever see while driving. You don’t drive down the street with your hood open, do you? Cold Air Inductions Inc. tests vehicles in a way that ensures the power we claim is the power you will feel every time you drive your vehicle.
    3. Quality from Day 1. When you unbox a Cold Air Inductions Inc. air-intake system and lay your hands on the parts for the first time, you know you’ve made the right choice. Every part in our system is made from the highest quality material, and it is crafted with pride in the USA. The airbox and tube are made from durable aluminum. All of the TIG welding is done by hand. All of the aluminum parts are powder-coated for a durable finish that will last whether your truck sees duty in dry, desert regions or salt-laden Midwest winters. We provide new stainless steel fasteners for the MAF sensor. If there are rubber parts in the system, they are the same quality as what GM used originally, or better. We use ¼-turn fasteners to attach the filter inspection lid – making it easy and quick to remove and reinstall the lid if you need to service the filter. Quality in every component – and quality that will last a long, long time.
    4. The Power of Cold. The goal of a cold-air intake is to reduce the restriction of air flowing into the engine, resulting in increased engine power. We go a step further with our systems by keeping the temperature of the air as cool as possible as it enters the engine. You see, the cooler the air temperature entering the engine, the more dense it is, letting the engine breathe in more air with every revolution for even more power. We coat our air tubes with thermal protection and line our air boxes with heat insulation. This reduces the transfer of heat from the hot, underhood environment to the air flowing through the air-intake, keep the air inlet temperature as cool as it can be. Cold Air Inductions Inc.’s systems improve airflow and keep air as cool as possible for the best power gains.
    5. The Sound of Performance. The last thing you want after upgrading the air intake on your truck is some odd sucking sound every time you lean into the throttle. GM spends countless hours eliminating undesirable noises from the air intake, and we do the same when we engineer our systems. This is an area where assembling a bunch of parts used in systems for other vehicles simply doesn’t work. We design every system for the specific vehicle and engine combination. We test on the flowbench, and then we test in the vehicle under a variety of driving conditions to make sure that the sound you hear when driving is a pleasant, performance one.

    We’ve been manufacturing cold-air intakes for more than 10 years. We pay attention to the things that matter to people who love their trucks because we love our trucks! We depend on them for work and play. And you can depend on us for the highest-quality air intakes in the industry, delivering real power and great quality.

    We’ve been seeing quite a bit of chatter on camaro6.com and other Camaro forums about a whistle people have mentioned has come after installing a cold-air intake on their new Camaro SS. Right now, all those comments are pointing at Cold Air Inductions. Since we were the first to market and we’ve shipped a ton of them, chances are if someone has a cold-air intake on their 2016 Camaro, it’s one of ours.

    Here’s the truth about that whistle you may or may not be hearing: It’s not in the air tube or air box at all. It’s in the factory intake manifold. In the cars we’ve tested that have the whistle, we’ve heard it at part throttle (38% throttle opening, to be exact) under mild engine load. We take quality, including sound quality, very seriously. And we do our homework before we launch a system.

    So, we did validation testing and videotaped it to show that the whistle is not part of our cold-air intake system. With the factory air box in place, we ran the car on our rear-wheel dyno. Then we removed the air box altogether and videotaped it again. In both cases, you can hear the whistle – even without the air intake attached to the throttle body at all!

    You may be asking yourself, “Why didn’t I notice the whistle before I installed your cold-air intake?” Good question. The answer is that you could hear it before, but it was muffled and you didn’t know when to listen. The factory air box is designed to reduce the air-intake sound, so it also reduces how the whistle transmits forward through the system. The way, it reduces sound and also causes air-flow restriction. The factory air filter is more restrictive than ours, further restricting air flow and sound. Our air intake system removes those air-flow restrictions, which also allows the sound to travel better. The other difference is that the air inlet for the factory air box is buried under the box, very low in the grille. If you put your ear near the grille where the factory air box takes in air, you would faintly hear the whistle at that part-throttle position under mild load. With our cold-air intake, the air inlet for the box is opened up, drawing air from most of the area right around the air filter. That means the whistle sound is much less restricted (muffled) and will be higher in the engine bay, making it easier to hear.

    The bottom line is that the whistle is part of the factory intake manifold, not part of our cold-air intake system, or even the factory air intake, for that matter, which the videos will help demonstrate. We focus on delivering a quality system that gives you more power, better fuel economy and a performance air-intake sound when you really lean into the throttle.

    Continuing the company’s leadership in performance cold-air intake systems for Camaros and GM trucks, Cold Air Inductions is proud to announce the first system available for the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro with the LT1 V-8. The system was designed to work with the factory tuning to provide up to 11 horsepower – and those are gains at the rear wheels! And the throaty air-intake sound that the system provides matches the performance exhaust tone of the Camaro6.

    In addition to more airflow through the unique Cold Air Inductions reusable air filter and air tube, the system features heat barriers to reduce heat transfer from underhood to the engine inlet air. This keeps the temperature of the air entering the engine lower for a denser charge and more power. The thermal-coated air tube is made from aluminum. All TIG welding on the intake system is done by hand. The insulated air box features an inspection window that makes it easy to check the condition of the lifetime air filter. The removable air-box lid is held in place with stainless steel, spring-loaded ¼-turn fasteners, making lid removal quick and easy. The air box and air tube are powder-coated in-house to provide either a textured black or near-chrome finish. The Cold Air Inductions systems do not void the vehicle warranty, and provide an improvement in rear-wheel power as well as fuel economy. They are proudly made in the USA.

    Cold Air Inductions has engineered and manufactured performance cold-air intake systems for more than 10 years, and prides itself on building the best quality systems. The company’s cold-air intakes have the advantage of increased airflow with cooler air-inlet temperatures and the best gains in real-world performance without any additional vehicle modifications.

    Owners of 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks can gain up to 12 rear-wheel horsepower and 6 lb-ft. of torque with a high-quality cold-air intake from Cold Air Inductions. This is a “No Lies” power gain that customers will feel every time they drive their vehicle. Unlike some other companies, all of our dyno testing is at the rear-wheels on a chassis dynometer, and testing is conducted with the hood closed at a reasonable ambient air temperature. This ensures the most accurate, real-world test results that duplicate what the customer will experience. No ECM tune is required and the systems do not void the vehicle warranty. The systems also provide an improvement in fuel economy, and are proudly made in the USA.

    In addition to gains in power and performance, the Cold Air Inductions systems replace the muffled, lackluster, soulless sound of the factory air box with a throaty performance sound every time you apply deep throttle.

    Air intakes from Cold Air Inductions have several features that set them apart from every other system on the market. The systems are engineered to reduce the temperature of the air entering the engine, as well as to increase airflow. The 4-inch air tube is thermal-coated and the air box is insulated to reduce heat transfer from the engine bay to the air heading to the engine. The air inlet tubes are made from aluminum, and all TIG welding on the intake systems is done by hand. The insulated air box features an inspection window that makes it easy to check the condition of the lifetime air filter. The specially engineered velocity stack and smooth-bore tube stop on every Cold Air Inductions air filter ensure that airflow is maximized and turbulence is minimized. Our filters are made from interwove cotton, and they can be cleaned and re-used. With proper maintenance, you’ll never need to replace the air filter. The removable air-box lid is held in place with stainless steel, spring-loaded ¼-turn fasteners, making lid removal quick and easy. The air box and air inlet tube are powder-coated to provide either a textured black or near-chrome finish that is extremely durable.

    Cold Air Inductions has engineered and manufactured performance cold-air intake systems for more than 10 years. The company prides itself on building the best quality systems, which combine the performance advantage of increased airflow with cooler air inlet temperatures to create cold-air intakes that provide the best gains in performance without requiring any additional vehicle modifications. The systems from Cold Air Inductions are not for sale or use in California.

    The ECS gang modified Ralph Fontanez's '11 Camaro SS with a Texas Speed and Performance VVT camshaft kit to prove the L99 is worthy of modification and not to be discarded for a fixed camshaft design. The car began in bone stock trim and produced 345 rwhp at 5,300 rpm and 355 lb-ft of torque at 4,400 rpm. The addition of a Cold Air Inductions intake system and ECS tune netted 363 rwhp; Doug Ring of ECS recalibrated the ECM (using EFI Live software) by tweaking the air/fuel ratio, adding some timing, and a few other little tricks. After a strong and consistent baseline, the ECS group brought the Camaro back into the shop to undergo the camshaft upgrade.
