The CAIs should be within 30 days, the CAT Backs 30 - 45 :)

when will these ship if preordered? / when will they be in stock?

Beast mode! Nice...

was the dyno test for the CAI done with the upgraded exhaust on or the stock exhaust? These numbers we see would be way different if we buy just the CAI, or the SRI. And same Question with the exhaust, dynoed with CAI, SRI or stock intake?

All of the DYNOs were done independently with just that part on the otherwise stock CRZ. One of the great benefits of having a DYNO in house. We don't have to play the numbers game! ;)

For the CAI do you have a picture of where the filters is located? Is it easy to clean once installed? I had a CAI on a previous car and it was a pain to get to the filter to take it off to clean it.
Thanks,
Scott
The filter is tucked away behind the drivers side foglight. It is a pita to get too mainly bc there's alot of dumb clips on the undertray but if ur good at taking off the clips it isn't that bad. If u go to my profile and look at my threads you'll find a pic I snapped from underneath and you'll see exactly where it is located.

It's nice and sunny in ct today windows down on the cr-z cruising and I gotta say I just continue to love my exhaust more and more :). Probably one of the beat notes I've had on any car I've owned. I have to make a clip of it taking off and drive by cruising and in cabin :) it's so smooth and sweet, all my friends are like "dude really? That sounds so sick" and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. Even the dealership liked it ;).

Am I the only one wondering why all the "Dyno Sheets" have "MUSTANG" written on them? And have 4 curves but only a legend for 2 of them? I don't mean to be calling anybody out nessesarily, but it does seem like a bit of a stretch to claim a even 10 HP gain, thats a big feat for a 112 HP motor... For having a dyno right there to use the sheets seem a little plain compared to other's I've seen for CAIs and SRIs on my other vehicles, no numbers for the second set of curves ...
OK so I guess I am calling you out but only because it seems like every CAI manufacturer out there is tip-toeing the BS line hoping people will buy their product and it makes me a very, very cautious buyer who critiques the validity of the information they provide. It doesn't mean much to me if you make a different CAI that makes 10 HP for a mustang, I'm driving a CRZ, and while people do like pretty graphs with pictures I prefer charts of before & after numbers, with decimal place accuracy.
Call me picky but I don't spend hundreds of dollars just to make my car make more noise going the same speed :p I certainly mean no disrespect either clearly you guys have worked very hard on these products and I will be thrilled for some reassurance or clarification on the posted gains. :)
