: Anyone have an opion on which is a better upgrade?
: 1) Buying a WS6 Ram Air hood and associated ram air kit/box
: 2) Buying SLPs ( or whomevers) Cold Air Kit that takes air from just in
: fornt of radiator
: Certainly, option #1 is much more expensive by the time you add in painting
: the hood!
: But what , if any, performnce gains can i expect to see on my stock ( for
: now) 2000 LS1 trans am?
HP gains will be about the same with either choice. They both achieve the
same result: Getting fresh air to the intake on a low restriction path. Posted
Dyno results bear this out.
If you are going for performance only, the SLP kit is the best choice. Same
results for a cheaper price.
If you want the aesthetics of the RA hood, then you have to decide if the
looks are worth the price.
