2016 Camaro Gets An Intake Upgrade From Farmtruck And AZN

Most auto enthusiasts know that a cold air intake is a quick and easy upgrade to enhance your vehicle’s performance and improve the sound of your engine. The challenge is finding the right one that noticeably improves your ride. There are a lot of options on the market, but the key is finding a high-quality system that cools and improves airflow. Otherwise, you could be wasting your money and hurting your vehicle’s performance.

That’s why Farmtruck and AZN chose an intake system from Cold Air Inductions. In this post, we’ll cover the highlights of their install video and explain why you can count on our cold air intakes to improve the performance of your car or truck.

Installing A Cold Air Inductions Chevy Camaro Intake

In this video, Farmtruck and AZN install a new Cold Air Inductions intake on a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro with the 6.2-liter V8 engine. As they unbox and go through everything, they comment on the quality of the parts and how everything is well made.

“This [intake] is impressive…it truly is…the quality of this product is top notch.”


Even though they haven’t installed one of our cold air intakes before, they find it easy to put together. It takes them about 35 minutes to hook everything up, including 15 minutes of joking around.

After completing the installation, they take the Camaro out for a spin. Immediately they notice the throatier sound, remarking:

“Who needs a supercharger when you’ve got the sound of a Cold Air Inductions intake?”

Performance Gains And Fine Details

At the end of the video, Farmtruck and AZN point out how you can find lots of inexpensive cold air intakes. But if you want one that noticeably improves performance and is easy to maintain, they recommend one from Cold Air Inductions. All of our cold intake systems are designed and tested to fit a specific vehicle and provide a tight fit to keep the engine compartment’s hot air out of the intake. Additionally, each system comes with the following:

  • Inspection window on certain kits – great to check the reusable air filters
  • Powder-coated aluminum components to reduce intake temps
  • Perfectly insulated air boxes to maximize cold airflow
  • OEM-spec fasteners and connectors
  • Retention of stock OEM sensors

Installing one of our cold air intakes takes only 15-30 minutes, but you’ll immediately notice the improved power, sound, and fuel economy.

Gearhead Diva 5th Gen Camaro Intake System Install

Cold air intakes can be a great way to boost the performance and intake sound of your vehicle. But not all systems are built the same. And there’s a lot of misinformation out there, too.

Installing the wrong cold air intake may be worse than sticking with a stock unit. That’s why it’s important to do your research. That’s exactly what Gearhead Diva did when she put one of our cold air intakes into her 5th Gen Camaro.

In this blog, we break down her install of our Chevy Camaro cold air intake kit.

The Camaro Cold Air Intake Install

camaro intake

Rachel De Barros is the Gearhead Diva. She knows plenty about cars and only installs the best quality mods in her builds. When upgrading her 5th Gen ‘Stormtrooper’ Camaro, she took to the forums to find out which system was the best for her vehicle.

She spent a lot of time going through owner stories, anecdotes, and product feedback. And found that only Cold Air Induction’s kits produced consistent results across the board. Dyno runs showed an average 15 hp increase over stock numbers. Not our figures but real-world results from customers.

The choice was clear; it had to be a Cold Air Inductions Camaro kit.

Why Choose A Cold Air Inductions Product?

At Cold Air Inductions, we do real power testing that delivers real power gains. Every cold air intake kit is built to the highest quality. We use OEM-quality fittings and retain all original sensors. Details of the CAI kit include:

  • Inspection window on certain kits – great to check the reusable air filters
  • Powder-coated aluminum components to reduce intake temps
  • Perfectly insulated air boxes to maximize cold airflow
  • OEM-spec fasteners and connectors
  • OEM sensors remain stock

The Video Review

Before Rachel delved into the benefits of our Camaro cold air intake kit, she noted that original stock intakes are, of course, specifically designed to work with other stock parts. While some generic, aftermarket solutions can actually be worse for your car’s performance, Cold Air Inductions Camaro intake kits deliver better performance.

This is because Cold Air Inductions intake kits are designed and engineered to work with specific year-make-model vehicles. They are also thoroughly tested to deliver improvements over stock parts by:

  • Reducing airflow restrictions
  • Keeping engine heat out
  • Increasing the cold air sucked into the engine

Rachel also mentions that the CAI intake has a smooth airflow pipe – this gives the MAF a clean reading. Resulting in consistent and reliable power gains. The large diameter air pipe is thermal coated to keep the intake air temperatures low.

The Power Is In The Detail

A visually flashy intake kit may look great. But it’s real engineering that delivers the results. Rachel reviewed the design details that set our systems apart from the rest:

  • High-quality 8-layer cotton fiber air filter
  • Perfect fit air box
  • Plexiglass inspection window
  • OEM-spec tubing for the crankcase breather tube

For starters, the air box is a very tight fit, preventing hot under-hood air from being sucked into the system. The 8-layer oiled cotton fiber air filter is also a cut above most competitors. It is completely reusable, and the Plexiglass inspection lid fits perfectly. Designed with handy push pins, it allows for quick air filter inspection. This is a feature of our top Carbon Elite Series kits.

Another unique component in this Camaro kit is the extra tubing provided for the crankcase breather tube. It even comes with heat shrink to ensure a perfect OEM-look fit and finish. She even used the original screws and nuts.

It takes just 15-20 minutes to install one of our cold air intakes. Not a bad trade-off for improved power, sound, and fuel economy.

Give Your Camaro The Best Intake On The Market

Our Elite Series systems are the perfect upgrade from an OEM setup. Check out this kit to get you started. Or get a Carbon Elite Series system like Rachel did for her Camaro. It’s our highest-performance cold air intake. And comes with our signature plexiglass window. Check it out here.

Top 5 Mods for Camaros

What Mods Should You Install First on a Camaro?

Video By Motor Fire

New Camaro owner or simply looking to upgrade the aesthetics and performance? Here are 5 mods for Camaro’s that you should seriously consider as the first mods you install!

  1. Camaro Cold Air Intake- One of the first mods any 5th gen or 6th gen Camaro owner will install is a new cold air intake. Adding a new cold air intake from Cold Air Inductions will allow you to maximize performance, tested to as high as a 13 horsepower and an average of 11 horsepower increase! By far this quick and easy Camaro mod is the fastest way to increase horsepower and performance!
  2. Oil Catch Can- Stopping oil from getting into the intake manifold is cheap and easy with a quick install for an oil catch can. This Camaro mod reduces carbon build-up on the intake valves and increases air turbulence to improve oil separation.
  3. Exhaust System- Adding a new exhaust system to your Camaro might be one of the first mods you tackle since it might be the most noticeable and rewarding. Fitting the new sound of your Camaro to your preferences in terms of company and make of exhaust allows you to access several new tones for your Camaro.
  4. New Wheels- For an aesthetic look, the next mod you may want to look into is new wheels, as they can drastically alter the Camaro’s look. Wheels are one of the best investments you can make to your car in terms of attracting attention from a unique look.
  5. Body Kits and Ground Effects- If you want to take the look of the Camaro to the next level to match the performance increases and aesthetics like you have done with the other 4 mods installing ground effects could take the stance and attitude of the car. Side skirts and a front splitter alone can instantly change the Camaro to a very aggressive look.

Back to Back Test: Cold Air Inductions On A 2016 Camaro SS

2016 Camaro SS On Track Performance Comparison: No Tuning

First 3 runs with Cold Air Inductions On A 2016 Camaro SS that is Bone Stock. Then, the cold air intake system from Cold Air Inductions is added without any tuning is installed. Three runs are then averaged for comparison. The Cold Air Inductions cold air intake is built for performance gains on and off the track.


Cold Air Inductions Camaro6 Dragstrip Comparison

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.

2017 Camaro SS Gets The Best Air Intake On The Market

2017 Camaro SS Cold Air Intake Performance For Hammerdown Motorsports

DiabloFormulaRacing installs a 2017 Camaro SS Cold Air Inductions cold air intake system. He gives part by part feedback based on his experience with other systems on the market. Also, he gives a thorough overview on what the installed quality is for the new 2017 systems.

Diablo Formula Racing is at it on a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Coming from the dealer with some power, he looks for a good way to add more to Hammerdown’s white double S Camaro.  Nothing is better than more rear wheel horsepower. DFR breaks down the system from the box showing each component. He replaces the spacer in the front of the intake manifold but aside from that, just uses the parts from the box for a seemingly instant performance upgrade. Having done a few Camaros with Cold Air Induction cold air intake systems, he throws the instructions right out of the box. The car already had headers and some other upgrades. During the latter part of the video, you can hear the air going into the engine. This is a 6th gen Camaro that will be higher horsepower and with more top end torque. The video doesn’t show the side by side before and after the cold air intake install but with the extra modifications, Hammerdown will most likely be dyno testing only after some more upgrades and other projects on a well tuned 6th generation Camaro like he has. DFR estimated Hammerdown is around 440hp at the wheels with the cold air intake and the other modifications.

5th-Gen Camaro Bolt-On Mods – Mods For the Masses

When the 5th-generation Camaro finally hit dealer lots in 2009, it was clear that GM had designed a winner. Its brawny lines turned heads on the street, and new buyers bought them in droves. GM also delivered the goods when it came to the powertrain. The stock 6.2 V-8 in the manually-equipped LS3 SS model pumps out an impressive 426 horsepower and 400 horsepower in the automatic transmission-backed L99 version. That bump in power from the fourth-gen days comes in handy since these new models are over five hundred pounds heavier. Despite the Camaro putting on some weight, many owners have been able to click off low-13-second runs in the quarter bone stock with both combos.

Earlier this year we picked up a 2010 Camaro SS/RS packing the L99 engine and 6L80E automatic transmission combo. We looked for one with the slushbox because of all the time we spend in bumper-to-bumper Chicago traffic. New to us, but already sporting 6,800 miles, we just had to take advantage of the late spring weather this past April and made a bunch of bone stock passes at Great Lakes Dragaway. So just a week after purchase and armed with solicited (and unsolicited) advice on how to run strong times with this car, it took only 7 passes for us to click off an impressive 13.15 at 106.77mph, cutting a 1.95 on the stock Pirelli tires. Subsequent track outings netted similar times, but none better than that 13.15. And predictably the car slowed down as we headed into summer. Low 13’s were easy when it was 65F, but mid 13’s have become the norm now that’s it’s routinely in the 90’s. And once it got warm, our invincibility turned into apprehension when a C6 or other quick ride rolled up on us. More power was needed.
