    Re: short ram in an Alero

    hp is hp my friend.. and im sure some can add more then just 2 hp.
    Id rather go cold air intake instead though.

    Re: short ram in an Alero

    ive personally never seen a SRI dyno'd (as in before and after same vehicle not my manufacturor) show more than about 3.5 hp) but with CAI (and yes i do even have one on mine) i have seen true Dyno's of a 10 hp+ gain

    all its going to do is sound better.

    waste of money.

    why try to force more air into a stock motor? i a motor only requires so much cfm of air. say meh 300cfm for a example.

    you buy a filter that does 800cfm.

    still, only 300cfm from that 800cfm is going to be used.

    now if you modded the motor to where a sri is required, you wil notice a good 8-12hp gain.

    lets say.. you mod and chip your alero, now it needs 750cfm of air. you have the stock 300cfm filter. its chokin with a power loss.

    u get the 800cfm filter and the filter lets the motor breath better resultin in a hp gain..

    i hope that made sense.



    save your money.

    Re: short ram in an Alero

    it all depends on engine and such, some engines come withe restrictive air intakes and such and there can be decent gains with just the intake swap but ya i agree for money SRI is a waste

    Re: short ram in an Alero

    Guys his question wasn't based on horsepower. His question was based on gas mileage. I've owned several cars, and at the prices they are now, cai is one of the first things I do. With a Cai, synthetic fluids / Redline, and my oil coiler (Yes under 200.00 I've seen almost 5 mpg improvment. Difference big enough? Considering I travel over 500 miles a week. You do the math. Yes it paid for its self in less then 4 tanks.

    Doubt it, read it again.

    He wants to convice his dad its for better gas milage but he wants it for hp. Then he proceeded to ask gas milage or hp. Neither with just a SRI. A few more mods have to be done, like you were explaining.

    I doubt he wants to do coilovers, syn-fluids, ect. Even-tho less friction-better emissions and gas milage.
