Default In Search of CAI for 2007 Monte Carlo SS

Title says it all!
I am looking for a Used CAI System for my 07 Monte Carlo SS. Located in the Chicagoland Area. I will be willing to travel, but I will also front Costs for Shipping.

Let me know! Thank You!

Well, my opinion is that anyone wanting a CAI should build it themselves. Its much cheaper and I honestly think you get the same, if not better benefits from building a fender well intake.. Mine actually goes into the front bumper but still..

You really only need a couple pieces of piping, couplers, and clamps..

I believe your TB size is 75mm (3 inches?) Ideally youd want pipe thats the same diameter or larger and a coupler thats 3.5" into 3" for the TB.. They sell some intake pipes at autozone (spectre brand) thats made of a type of plastic that resists heat pretty well..

Or they make them enclosed box type intakes that most have around here and they come up for sale every now and then.. GP forums have them for sale quite often but those are just not my thing..

Idk, just my two cents.. Let me know if you need me to explain anything further.. Id be more than happy to..

Thank you very much my man!

I actually don't mind going that route, as they are all overpriced Brand New, which is why I wanted to see if there was a slim chance of someone on here having a used one.

The Piping and Filter are the easy parts to find! However, the Airbox is the most important piece that I'd need. I'll definitely check out GM Forum and see what I find.

Thank you very much for the Input!

This one is very well put together! How much customization did you have to do to get it to fit correctly? Where did you put your filter? Directly behind the Light?
