Just finished up all my senior exams, graduating on sat, figured i'd get myself something nice haha.

I was originally going to get the airaid tune combo from AM (620) but their memorial sale puts the JLT tune combo at 600, which i think is currently the best deal, and i kinda like the look of carbon fiber. I kno the airaid heat shield is much better but with the dyno vids from AM it doesnt look like it makes much difference.

Also some have posted that the JLT requires you to drill out MAFs or something? anyone kno anything bout that?

If you have either of these intakes, feedback would be appreciated, thnx

JLT in general on ANY car is the bomb. Works great. Fitment is never an issue. Plus their service department is great if you have any issues.

go for JLT :D

Actually, it depends. I think Autos have to drill and manuals don't have to on the JLT.

With the Airaid, they allow you to 'plug' the pre-drilled hole with an easy to attach piece. I chose the Airaid over JLT due to quality issues with the JLT.

Go with what you like, you can't go wrong. If the JLT is cheaper, and you don't mind the cosmetic flaws close-up, I say go for it.

i'm curious to know what issues you had?

i had C&L on my v6, but now having a JLT, i probably would have wanted that on my v6 if given the chance!

The issues I'm referring to are solely cosmetic. The JLTs for the 2011's when released had cracks/splints in their carbon fiber, and the carbon fiber not matching up. Basically, up close, the carbon fiber looked real cheap. From far away, it looked 'cool'.

JLT performs the best, but yes, if your car is an automatic, I believe you have to drill a hole. If it is stick, then you will have no problems. Maybe 1 or 2 people had splitting on the carbon fiber, but im with SlowV6.... i have a c&l and it works great, but if i were to do it again, i would get the JLT.... especially at that price!
