    BMC CDA or Dbilas Flowmaster?

    I want my engine to breath better and can't decide between the BMC CDA and Flowmaster, they both are similarly priced but which one delivers most performance for the money? Or shall I forget both and just do the Veccy C intake mod?

    (I'm driving a Z18 Astra)

    The flowmaster is just an enclosed airbox with a (small) K&N filter in it - sound familiar?

    I'd only say that the flowmaster particularly stands out if you've got the Z22SE where the standard airbox doubles back on itself.

    Ive been thinking about this, Im actually thinking of buying the flowmaster for getting more air in to the T35. Im wanting to do away with the cross overpipe so the BMC is no good for me.

    Do the BMC CDA kits come with a cold air feed pipe or do you need to modify the existing intake (eg. fitting a Veccy C intake)?
