CAI help????

i have the 2.4l g6 and i was looking to get a cai. but reading through the forums i guess i cant get one. is there something else i can do to increase air flow or something else to get a boost in hp that wont mess my computer up? i saw in a photo someone replaced the tubing that goes from the air box to the throttle body but left the stock air box. could i do that or something else and it still work? and preferably something that wont break my wallet. considering theres already nothing in it

The only option isnt cheap as it requires a tune.

Any chance to trade that bad boy in on a V6...?

Injen makes an intake for your 2.4l but it constricts the airflow to that of your stock
flow to prevent the CEL so it really does no good (IMHO).

The G6 2.4l doesnt adapt well to added air like its V6 brothers.

MODS:
Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....
