There’s no getting away from the fact that the 5th-generation Camaro is among the hottest vehicles on the street right now. Enthusiasts continue to snatch them up like they’re going out of style, with the supercharged ZL1 version being the new hot ticket. Equipped with the ever-so-popular LS series engines, there’s no choice but for the aftermarket to accommodate the gearhead’s with need for speed goodies.
AIRAID is one of those companies, first by supplying 5th-gen SS owners with a cold-air induction kit they are now extending the benefits of that unit to ZL1 owners. Called the MXP Series, most of the components including the airbox are carryover from the SS kit, and it even retains use of the OEM scoop. However, the difference is in the intake tubing, with this version being specially designed for the ZL1′s unique LSA airbox to throttle body arrangement.
Benefits of the kit include; more horsepower and torque, increased fuel mileage, and a throatier roar. AIRAID is claiming that owners of ZL1 Camaros can pick up over 30 horsepower with this upgrade, thanks to a 19% airflow increase utilizing a 1400CFM premium air filter. Since this is for a supercharged engine, we believe it, because boosted cars typically respond more significantly to intake and exhaust upgrades than do naturally-aspirated vehicles.
Furthermore, the intake tube is lined and reinforced with stainless steel for high vacuum applications that includes a molded billet aluminum MAF housing. The MXP features all of the necessary hardware, easy to follow instructions, and comes completely backed by a lifetime “No-Hassle” warranty. Give Airaid a call at 602-443-3333 for more info.
