Based on logs there really isn't any difference in IAT between an open box intake like the CTS one or the stock intake. The FMIC impacts IATs more than anything. The open box intakes are just a sound mod.

^^unless you are running a larger turbo and pushing a lot more power at which point the stock intake piping becomes restrictive.

Exactly, I did a bunch of testing with stock vs cts intake and it didn't make a difference. Once you get moving they even out.

It's not about looks or performance, it's about sound.

$264 shipped to your door is a no brainer.

For anyone thinking about getting the CTS Turbo intake I would totally recommend it. Especially if your looking for one with great sound. Not going to lie though. For the first couple miles it did sound a little okayish, but man did it come alive.
