I was able to spend the morning yesterday at the Airaid (www.airaid.com) R&D facility in Phoenix Arizona getting the R&D process started for a cold air intake system specifically designed for the Solstice. As you all know any one can throw a few pipes together with a high flow air filter and call it a cold air induction system but Airaid will actually be testing the performance of the product as it goes through the development process so that they maximize the potential Performance gains for the final system that they will release to the public. They will have my Solstice in there R&D shop for 4 days total over a 4 week period, a small price to pay for the cause I guess.

I will keep you all informed of the status of the unit as it gets closer to completion and finally for sale on there web site.

Have them give you some before dyno graph images and post them here!!! We want to see what our engine looks like on paper.

I'm going in next week, I'll get the dyno results if they do it next week. I'll also post it on my web site as it develops further....

Free one?

Are they going to at least give you a free intake for the use of your car? Sounds only fair. :lol: :cool:

You should ask for before and after Dyno sheets, this way you will really know if it does make a difference.

Yes, I saw it in a dictionary in the California edition of Websters. :)

The Air Raid works great on my Burb, so I am hoping it works as well on your Sol. :thumbs:

I put one on my Miata and I could really notice the difference. This would be a nice "cheap" horsepower mod for the Sol for those of us who don't want to start talking about a full engine mod or a turbo system. Sounds great. Keep us posted.

Your correct, I'm not sure what exactly happened but from what I was told a year ago was that they had a few other projects in the works and when they got the time they would call me.....then never did! So in the end I went with a Fujita.....And now there are 4 companies that produce them and there not one of them.....
