Cold Air Intake

Hey all,

New member, I was wondering what you all thought would be a good, cold air intake? Im looking for something that would give me the most gain. I plan to do more to it, but Im going to start on the engine. Any advice on a good one.

Re: Cold Air Intake

an intake is an intake
don't get caught up with the name brand cause it won't matter in regards to an intake.

I would get just the cheapest ebay 3" piping CAI you can find, and then spend money on a K&N filter ($40ish)

Good luck

Re: Cold Air Intake

yeah that is true if it looks the same on the outside with a off brand intake they should do the same thing your just not paying for a name brand sticker slapped on it. but the best intake would probably be the AEM V2 intake but itll set you back some money.

Re: Cold Air Intake

i'd rather have a $50 ebay CAI and save money for a bad-ass header

than spend wasted money on stuff like AEM V2 intake, dc header, aem pulley set, grounding wire kit, fancy spark plug wires.


qaulity and r&d matters but not equally important on every part of a car.

Re: Cold Air Intake

the type-s intake with the resonator removed and a k&n drop in will give you the most power.


and the only wires i would run besides OEM is ngk.

This, or just a K&N drop in for your stock intake.

I agree with both of these. Because they are both correct.

Re: Cold Air Intake

I just got a 50$ ebay intake but one problem with that, there is no place to connect the 2 small vacuum hoses. 1 is at the top and the other is just behind the battery. Is there a way to bypass this or how do I connect them...

I ment to put this in the 4th gen. sorry... still if you know it will help.

A question: could you leave the OEM intake and remove the resonator and drop in a k&n filter as well?
