    I talked to vmp and they want me to datalog. I know that its the intake since I watched IAT's for a couple of weeks before swapping to the pmas. If they give me a hard time ill just dump the pmas call it a loss and go to a closed box like a 18+. Hopefully data logging is easy.

    Never said it was smart, just stating that it can be whatever you set the multiplier at in the tune.

    I had a PMAS on my 2012. Sounded awesome, felt a little more power in the higher RPM range when I was on the highway. Took it to the track twice and went slower than with the stock box, so I sold it.

    Thank you for the advice, i did do a return on it and getting a airaid closed element and retune. Im still driving the car with the pmas on there till i get the new one. VMP has been great to deal with so far and appreciate them being nice.

    I'm glad i read this. I was all set on a pmas as i read in multiple threads its the only cai that makes good power. But who cares if you don't notice that power until you've been driving above a certain speed to drop IATs. I have a 17' gt and was planning on getting a ported '18 intake.

    Guess i should just get an '18 stock box instead of a pmas? How much bigger are they over a '17?

    Just to give an idea of how bad IAT's get with the PMAS here it is 80 ambient and 162 IAT's, lol. Thank god I'm switching this out to closed element intake. This is not stop and go traffic either. Just driving around in town. I've been watching IAT's closely before and after intake install and I'm easily 40-50+ over ambient with this intake. Yes driving over 40mph for a couple of minutes consistent will drop it and on the freeway I'm about 6-10 over ambient but in traffic and around town it will struggle. 586401F5-CEE6-464C-B43B-1766694AD3BA.jpeg

    Wow that is crazy. Stop and go must be terrible.

    Maybe I'll give steeda's CAI a look, it's supposed to be massive and have low IATs

    I have had the same results with my pmas with over the top 150 degree mark in summer. I have aftermarket vents and even cut a wee bit of the drip tray to help while at a stop or low speed. Did my best to block it off from the engine bay as well but the temp sky rockets at a stop.

    Keep in mind this option is fine for straight 91/93 or e85r but not viable if wanting to run a flex tune.

    Yes I was reading that.

    I'm in Canada, I haven't seen e85 anywhere. Our choices are 87 and 89 with up to 10% ethanol, 91 (I think some have added up to 10% ethanol while some are straight gas) and one company has 94 and the price of 94 is substantial.

    I would be going with the closed box of course.

    Looks good, what made you choose airaid? Will you need a retune?

    its closed element saw a couple if vids on it thought the design would be much better since its sealed. I did get a retune from VMP. They have been great.
