    Optimal Upgrade. Few intake system upgrades offer as big of a leap forward as affordably as the Spectre Cold Air Intake. It's that quality boost in torque and horsepower you want while staying to a firm budget.

    Precise Tuning. A handheld tuner can help you reach optimal throttle response. Use it before, during, and after installation for a pitch-perfect systemic calibration.

    Secret to Success. The secret to the product rests in the mighty and formidable Spectre High Performance Racing (HPR) air filter. It's mounted on the passenger side, and really maximizes air flow to result in a powerful bump in performance.

    Cool and Hot Air. The system has to succeed on its ability to contain the cool air and re-allocate the hot air from the engine. Thankfully, a tightly-built black powder coated 2-piece heat shield keeps the heat at bay.

    A Big Kit. The kit is expansive, but it includes everything you need. It may take some time, but all instructions are included for a step-by-step installation.

    Protected from Defects for a Long Period. The Spectre warranty favorably protects customers from any manufacturing responsibilities and defects. You get exactly what you bought. The warranty includes all intake systems from Spectre.

    Nationwide Use. Spectre has gone far in confirming most of their line-up to 50 State Legal status. You can find detailed information under the CARB EO Number D-629-12.

    Application. This Spectre Cold Air Intake with the polished finish is made to fit all 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado equipped with the 5.3L engine.

        Is the Spectre cold air intake smog legal in California?

        • This Spectre Cold Air Intake will not be CARB legal but Spectre is still working on covering their entire product line under recent California emission changes. For now, the product is certified in 49 states- not quite the full boat.

            Same issue as other

            Like many of the other reviews, quality seems good and install was as instructed and not difficult at all. Issue with the medium size clamps are too large and you run out of teeth to get tight. Also, the air filter falls off. Going to try to rough up the mount and maybe file some grooves. This is a serious flaw. Seems fixable with better clamp or ridges on the mount.

            Bought it for my 2016 Silveraldo, easy to install, great price and just as good than the others on the market

            Good for me

            I've had this intake on my Chevy truck (5.3) for 1 week and have gained 4.3 mpg. I set my cruise at 78 all the time and live in the hill country of central Texas. I went from 14.3 to 18.6 mpg. The installation was easy although I had to replace 3 of the smaller clamps because they ran out of tightening slits and wouldn't clamp any tighter. Also, after a couple of days I noticed my mpg going down; raised the hood and the air filter had slipped off. I took some sand paper and roughed up the hard plastic edge and it hasn't slipped off any more. So maybe I got it fixed. Overall, I'm satisfied with this product.

            Worth it.

            Pro: Gas mileage slightly up. Growls when opening up on throttle. Easy install. Con: Air filter falls off due to smooth contact patches. Death tightening/roughing surface/smaller claps will remedy. Mass Airflow sensor may trip due to different air reading. Code will need to be cleared.

            Review from Spectre Performance Cold Air Intake - Polished (14-18 5.3L Sierra 1500)

            Nice improvement in response and sound

            I'm on my 3rd one on 3rd different GM truck. Easy to install and maintain. Makes a nice improvement in throttle response and sound. Quite noticeable when towing a trailer. Hard to say on mpg, perhaps 0.5 mpg on 6.0 liter Denali I had. Currently on 2017 GMC Sierra with 5.3 liter and Borla exhaust. Significantly better sound than my neighbor with same set up and no cold air intake. I run cold air I take year round here in Michigan with no negative side effects.

            Filter keeps falling off

            Quality materials except for the hose clamps. And the filter doesn’t stay on the mount.. not happy with that.
