      2010 GT500 C L Intake

      It went on in 20 minutes. The fitment is excellent and I think it is a good value for the cost. I was surprised to find that this is the same part as for 2011-2014 5.0’s and 3.7’s. I couldn’t hear much more difference in supercharger whine. I have no complaints but I feel like there are more gains to be had with the bigger intakes. These are the only reasons I am not giving it 5/5, I really like it, but I’m not blown away by it.

    Hi I have a 2010 GT500 No modifications. I am looking at purchasing the C L air intake with the tune. 1. what gains should I expect? 2. do you include the tune for the air intake? how easy is it to upload the tune? thanks Leo

    • Unfortunately, there are no listed dyno gains from C&L for this CAI at this point in time. You should expect around 20-30 HP with the combinationof the two items. The tuner itself will be an easy process and we would recommend this here for your make model and year:
