Air Intakes?


 Share

Recommended Posts

hi everyone just wana know what air intakes there are out there. ive seen a few like powertec pipercross, look the same, prolex one and a few ebay jobbys, tbh i dont like the look of them i like the stock air box, do they make much diffrence, sound, performance, if not i dont see the point in them and the prices are stupid.

are there any other options?

Hey mate. I remember you from CCUK.

Like you I just got my IS. What are you after? Power or sound. You know you won't get power from intake alone, and fitting a badly designed conical item will yield heat soak without some form of shield.

I saw on here someone who had a short ram version right behind the passenger side headlight.

Personally I MIGHT fit a K&N panel filter and maybe do an air feed from the bumper ducted to it. Not sure yet...i'm in no rush.

you could always go custom its not too hard just some stainless and your sorted really and i know what you mean about the standard cover thing it is good i was thinking of possibly cutting a circles just enough for a short ram and then keep the rest. also to answer you initial question they only make a true difference when they are rolling roaded when the car can be programmed that it has a better air flow same with an exhaust or mani the true gain isnt until a dyno
