i would have gone AEM, but since it came with a k&n i guess its about the same., Ive heard that yopu need to get new hoses that connect to the intake piping. but other than that no complaints.

hey wayne, did you install it already? Any pics and maybe a how to? Never done it before and I was thinking about getting something like that too. I seen some other ones on ebay for like $20-$40. Of course not the same brand.

Yeah I know, I just like it when people do "how to's" and I learn from their mistakes is all.

it comes in on monday the 6th. i'm going to put it in then. i'll take pics too if i can remember. Reason i got this over AEM or Injen is because it's a cold air intake not a short ram. the other CAI's are way too expensive for a 18 year old kid that just wants to have some fun. i may use my injen filter instead but we'll see.

BTW i washed my engine bay twice already and scrubed it with a wire brush too so i will be taking "after" pics of the install.

actually it isnt a true CAI. It runs the same exact path your stock intake does. A true CAI would have the filter in the fender or front bumper or what not. Thats they AEM only makes a short ram

wrong... it is a true CAI. look at the auction again. by the way i give it an 8 of 10 for an intake. it gives the ka a really nice sound almost like a wrx in the 3-5 rpm range. after that it's just like any other intake in terms of sound. performance wise i can't tell yet. i'll see how much gas milage is affected too. i'll re rate it soon a guess but one thing i do really like is the piping is 2.75 inch.

really? tell me how that could be called a cold air intake. Just because it says its a cold air intake doesnt mean the air will be any colder. It will, however, give better flow as opposed to a stock airbox. This is how it makes power, by reducing resistance to flow. It is still taking air from the same area of the car though. Im not trying to say that its a bad intake, but im just pointing out that it is not in fact a true cold air intake.

It is dude...Look at the piping Your NOT drawing air from the same place because its getting COLD air from the bumper area instead of HOT air from the engine bay. Get it?

Looks like normal piping to me. As far as i can put it together in my head, it looks like the stock piping. Show me a pic of what it looks like in the car first
