Re: Callaway Honker Cold Air System
I put my car on the dyno when it was stock and made 440. I installed a CAI (Airaid) and a tune and made 480. I was pretty happy with the results but the downside was the codes I was setting. The most common were related to the catalytic converter and some lean bank1 and 2 codes. After much frustration, I put the stock air cleaner back on and returned the tune to stock. To tell the truth, I couldn't detect much difference between the two tunes even though I gained 40HP. The difference wasn't worth the hassle in the long run. One of the things that helped sway my decision to go back to a stock air cleaner is it's ability to filter out finer particles, thus keeping all the nasties out of your engine.
Anyway, I've learned to just enjoy the car in stock form. I did however add a Mild to Wild switch to give a deeper exhaust note at idle.
