which intake?

Hi guys,

Was wondering what aftermarket intake I should buy from? any recommendations? trying to beef up the sound of my car, but trying to minimize the amount of change I do. Thank you

That's the one that I have on my car, and I love the sound. It is very easy to install.

It sounds really good when you get on it. If just driving normal then normal sound. I'll try to shoot a video on the way to work on Tuesday to show you and post it up.

I wouldn't swap the exhaust unless you can hear what it would sound like before hand on someone else's car. At idle, on take off, and most importantly when cruising to make sure it doesn't have a drone you can't stand. A V6 will sound like a V6 and there is no making it sound like a V8, ever.


Loud is subjective and everyone would describe it differently. You have to decide what is loud.

The oiled CAI is much better at filtering out particles. As far as worries on the oiled is putting too much oil on and fouling the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor. I shot a video today of what the CAI sounds like and I just have to edit it down and post it.
