    The Upgrade You Have Been Craving. The Spectre Cold Air Intake delivers on all promises: bumped up torque, increased throttle power, a quick and fine installation suitable for even beginners, and a purely polished design. This Spectre product has it all.

    No High-End Tuner Necessary. Only a select few buyers ever opt to calibrate the system with a tuner. For a great install, you won't need it.

    Excellent Filtering. The filtering system is designed from top-of-the-line materials exclusively, and is labeled performance-grade.

    A Build to Impress. A filter can't do much if it is not properly protected. Thankfully, the engineers have crafted multiple rich and strong Black Powder Coated Steel Heat Shields for enhanced heat blocking.

    Install in an Afternoon. You will only have to clear the afternoon for this low-level and easy installation.

    Favorable Warranty Terms. Spectre has improved their warranty terms to include lifetime coverage on most products.

    Certified Nationwide. 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.

    Application. The Spectre Cold Air Intake System with a polished aluminum intake tube is designed to fit 2014-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 trucks with 5.3L engines.

        Will my used 99182 model fit a 2018 5.3L Silverado?

        Have they fixed the issued with the clamps not fitting correctly yet? Seems like an easy hardware fix.

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

            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.

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

            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.

            WORKS GREAT

            Gives my 5.3 2015 Sierra a great sound, easy to install and def gives the truck a more responsive feel and sound.

            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.
