    We plan on doing another independent air intake test on a 2016 Yukon Denali. We do sell all major brand name intakes, but would like to know what brands consumers would like to see tested.

    Post up the intake you would like to see make the list.

    EDITED for results: http://blackbearperformance.com/IntakeTestResults_2016.asp

    It is available for the 2015, so we should be able to test it.

    Since the 15s should fit the 16s, I imagine it is just a quick database update.

    Biggest thing I'm curious about would be something like a Volant enclosed air intake, vs something like a spectre that's open, vs the airaid MIT tube on the stock box. Those right there should cover most questions, at least for me

    I don't know if it's been asked before, but an eBay brand intake would be interesting vs name brand.

    The guys are drafting up the documentation, they took lots of pix, along with all the dyno sheets under different conditions.

    No, too difficult to swap out, would take too long. Don't expect major performance enhancements from a muffler/catback swap.
