Default c5 cold air intake

I have a stock 2002 c5 looking to do my first upgrade in a cold air intake. Any suggestions on which brand is the best gains for the buck. And does anyone have any actual dyno sheets with only a cai installed just wondering what are some real world gains. Thanks

Amazon is selling the Volant 25957C right now for $185, which seems like a screaming deal.

Does anyone know if these are any good?

I have an 02 myself, with the stock intake...

I have a Airaid on my car I really like the kick down and the little extra noise I get from it, and the filter can be cleaned and purchased in red, blue, black. That's what I know and like. Good luck.

Way back when I had my car I went with the vararam. I wouldn’t run on in Florida due to the amount of rain and standing water we get. Vararam was good for 3 tenths in the 1/4 mile and 3mph as well.

My recommendation is the Callaway Honker. It looks factory and pulls air from in front of the radiator so it is always pulling in fresh, cool air whether you are moving or not. Not cheap but well worth it. You do have to cut a square hole in your plastic radiator shroud but I like these types of do-it-yourself modifications.
