That's cool. Intakes make a pretty big difference on these cars! I have one for sale right now that shoud work as good as the K&N if anyone is interested. See sig.
Nope, my old OEM filter was just fine, I know I was sceptical too to pay $300 for CAI ...but I will tell you one thing, if you can control your foot you will get better gas mileage.not to burst a bubble but K&N is only showing about a 5 horse increase. Not exactly huge in my book but maybe your old filter was packed full of dirt taking away 30 horse or something.....
The dyno is measuring power at the front wheels, not the engine. You lose at least 20% in the driveline. You really can't compare HP numbers from one dyno to another. There are too many variables that affect the numbers.DID you look at the DYNO chart? as far I know the G6 GT has 219HP versus what they are saying 153.85HP....
i talked to a tec at k&n about the whistling and she said that its a) you now have a lot more air moving through and/or b) by removing the stock air box you remove something that muffles the sound of air coming through.Hi everyone,
I installed few days ago on my 2005 G6 Gt K&N Typhoon CAI ...this thing rips the roads now :banana:
Anywho...any of you out there with CAI get the whistling sound under faster
acceleration? my car sound under the hood like supercharger :banana:
There is HUGE HP boost...can't wait to take it in few weeks for ride to Florida from IL to see what the MPG is going to be under "Normal" driving
Can you get a pic?so, what i did is i took the bottom part of the stock air box and put it back. this helped to silence alot of the whistle and i still get a good kick from it and it doesnt look too ghetto.
READ the K & N Disclaimer ...NO it does not void the Manufacturer (GM) warranty.i was looking at the k/n CAI typhoon setup for my g6 but was wondering once i install the product if it does anything to my warranty, just got my new 08 g6, only got like 700km on it right now.
i have a 06 GT still under warranty n i was lookin at a typhoon also ru sure it wont void the warranty?
Here is the scoope on MPG...can't wait to take it in few weeks for ride to Florida from IL to see what the MPG is going to be under "Normal" driving
I agree 100%All the intakes are an improvement over stock.
Its not my pick for obvious reasons but the Typhoon is a good intake.
Make sure that you turn the traction OFF otherwise you WILL spin tires with traction ON ...it does have great pickup with Cold Air.I installed the typhoon this past weekend. I can feel the difference in horses. I cant wait for it to finish snowing so i can bring her out on the road again.
