    Hey all,

    I have been shopping around for a Performance Intake for my 2010 5.3 and I have ran into some issues. I just moved to Maryland and the intake needs to be CARB certified to pass emissions testing :grrrrrr:. Does anyone know which kits would work down here so I can get rid of this restrictive stock Intake system. I was looking into the AIRAID Jr. kit to keep the stock Airbox but I dont know how well that'll work.

    Thanks for the help,

    Look at the Banks CAI.

    If the intakes are legal for emissions they will carry a C.A.R.B number right on them & most manufactures state this right in their ads which ones do & which ones don't to make your selection process a little easier

    Just keep your OEM intake and when inspection time comes just swap it out.

    Thanks for the input. My only problem is most for the CAI sites except for K&N list what states don't allow CAI's (Arizona, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington). I think ill just do what Big Chris said to do. Ill swap out the CAI when emission testing time comes.
