ZZP CTS V-Sport Cold Air Intake

This an intake for the Twin Turbo 3.6L LF3 equipped CTS V-Sport.

The ZZP CTS V-Sport Cold Air Intake was designed by our ZZP engineers that make products by day, race them by night, and daily drive the vehicles we build parts for.

The ZZP CAI is superior to all others on the market. It does not set check engine lights, does not require specialized tuning and is the best quality intake on the market for this application. The silicone sections are custom designed by ZZP with smooth transitions to maximize flow. Intakes with stepped transitions cause airflow traffic jams which hurt performance.  The air filters are a specialized design to meet the draw needs of the twin turbo v6 and outflow the other intake manufactures who simply buy a generic filter from someone else and include it with their airbox. In fact, the filters will feed 1000 HP where others risk collapsing or restricting performance. ZZP is the only company making filters and testing at these HP levels. We have more pleats per inch, deeper pleats and custom filter material which give these results

The tubing is 6000 series aluminum, powder coated in high temp wrinkle black to match a factory look. MAF pads are CNC machined in house and each part of the intake is marked with ZZP branding. ZZP is an American company with American quality. 

Note: Your cooling fans will turn on high the first time starting the car (because the MAF sensor was unplugged). Just let the car run for a minute, shut it off, and re-start it and the fans will shut off.

Excellent product

Got this installed on my 2015 and after a retune from Trifecta this opened up the car nicely. Also, an added benefit is you can now hear those turbos spool up and that is sexy.

Looks nice but, not CAI

After installing I discovered that the system is NOT... I repeat. NOT, a cold air intake. This system pulls air from the engine compartment which gets hot as ****. I am finding that my intercooler gets heat soaked much faster than with the stock system, which is a semi-CAI system that gets cold air from the duct on the left hand side of the grill but is not sealed off from the engine bay. This system is almost completely exposed to the engine bay. On the plus side, Trifecta now offers a ZZP intake specific tune and if you use BOOSTane octane booster (1oz/gal.), that will bring 93 octane up to 100 octane... and Trifecta has a tune for 100 octane with ZZP tune (DO NOT RUN NON-100 OCTANE WITH THIS TUNE). This combination has changed my V-Sport from a beastly monster to a screaming banshee, spinning the tires on the 1-2 shift! ALSO, for those that are a fan of BOV whoosh, running the stock BOV's with this system makes a LOUD whoosh and an exhaust crack from the Corsa axle-back cans on the 1-2 shift. It will whoosh every time it comes off of pressure, the higher the pressure, the louder the whoosh. The whoosh is not audible with normal driving, just when you get on it.

Its just ok

It sounds good but it kind of looks pieced together how certain things have to be routed.... and the main thing i dont like is that this isnt a real "cold air intake" its not divided off from all the engine heat. But i guess the main things is it sounds nice.

Worth the wait

My item was out of stock , received an email that my Cadillac CTS VSport intake was back on the shelves, ordered right away. Extremely fast shipping and great packaging my intake was in pristine condition. Install was pretty simple and straightforward, almost didn’t need the instructions. Best part about it it looks awesome on the hood.
