This is the Nameless Performance cold air intake (CAI) that I ordered a month and three weeks ago. I’ve been waiting for this a long time. At first, I was upset because I thought that most of this was pre-built, but after making a complaint to Jason (of Nameless), he e-mailed me stating that they were almost done building it. I did a mental double-take. Then, when I received it, I got a good look at the craftsmanship…it’s good enough to where I can mount it over my fireplace (I’m not joking). It’s almost a work of art. The close-out is powder-coated. If I’d have known it would look that good, I’d have maybe chosen another color. I opted to have the MAF housing as black in color. Overall, it looks great!
I’ll probably end up mounting it a week before my protune is scheduled. No, this CAI doesn’t need a protune, as it is compatible with Cobb’s AEM OTS tunes (although, a protune would be more efficient/safer). If I could, I’d get the car dyno’d and tuned before the parts are mounted and afterward, but I can’t/won’t. I’m also still mulling over getting an e-tune. I’ve a few e-tuners in mind, but will need to get the low RPM stumble fixed (there’s an online mod how-to here).
