Don't know much about modifying but is it worth the money or time to get a cold air intake for a solstice that is a base model? If so which one, and will it affect my warranty? Thanks for any advice
Fabeandles, many of the threads I read dissuaded many from doing it. Here's my synopsis of the hundreds of threads in my opinion, I'll save the well learned regulars on here some time maybe and take a novice crack at it:
-Most if not all found absolutely no increase in horsepower.
-The standard one is very well designed.
-Some who changed to a non factory CAI fouled their sensor(s) with the oil, threw error codes etc. (MAF sensors I think).
-Some made the change and the sound, though louder, seemed worse like a croaking frog, as the factory air intake has some well engineered sound baffles and many though that was actually a good thing after hearing it.
-Those who liked the sound only got the sound. If memory serves me correctly one guy documented with Dynos before and after no increase in anything good.
-Occasionally someone says they like it and it seems to help ___ <-insert positive comment here - no offense to those who have a +
Here's some I searched for ya. Used the keyword CAI:
