Talking ColdAir intake questions...

Adding a cold air intake how much HP would that add to the already 420hp ?
Also.. adding the Cold air. does that void the vehicle warranty ?

I dont think it adds any HP, I have the GruppeM intake on my car and I dont feel any difference besides the AWSOME sound it makes....Maybe it does but to minor to feel. As for warranty, If something happens to your engine I would suggest removing the Intake with the OEM and than taking it to the dealer.

The stock intake is a cold air intake. The driver's side duct in the bumper is functional! Makes this car that much better.

Also the stock intake is a very air tight intake meaning it doesn't have any leaks.

The stock intake is a work of art. I think very few aftermarket CAIs will perform better. I would get a less restrictive filter and call it good.

HP increase would also depend how cold the air is.

...unless you count the hole in the hood......but it is indeed a "cold-air" intake.

A higher-flowing air filter would make more sense than changing the efficient stock air-box.
