Hi again, normally I try and search for old stuff like is usually reccomended but just wanted to ask a few qestions as my searching isnt turning up much:
1. Regarding intakes on the accent has anyone tried the K&N intake: http://www.knfilters.com/search/product.aspx?Prod=57-0520 price for me in canada is $189 but I can get 50% off knowing someone that works there, still seems a little high.
that one seems like a mix of a short ram but being fed supposedly cool air from that hose (as stated in the instructions, but I have my doubts)
I think my best bet is to just go with some muffler shop pipe ($50? max for maybe 2 pieces max 2.5-3" pipe, wouldnt make sense to go bigger than the TB opening size) and a K&N filter (about $35 for a 3" CAD)
I also noticed something wierd looking at all the pics of ppl's intake is that even though I think I have the same engine 1.6L 16v the plastic cover on mine looks pretty different, all black with recessed holes for the screws.
Dealer calls it a 2006 gs, door sticker says 2005, and the body styling looks like 2004 (from what I can tell web searching) how many years did that accent use the same style?
and a big noob question what is LC1 and 2?
now for exhaust the only thing I have found is:
which seems to have questionable fitment and I dont really wanna pay that kind of price just for something that looks nice and shiny stainless, (cept the headers)
now there its under the catagory 2000-2005 accent (but i'm not sure what the hell mine is, ill try to get the engine code after)
and the bosal header pipe w/ flex pipe says the app' is 2000-2002.
i'm gonna go by a muffler shop pretty soon and see whats going on under there but just wondering in the mean time is there any o2 censors after the cat? ive only noticed the one that comes right off the header right before the cat which seems to be part of the header which is kinda wierd but whatever.
and is there any other O2 censors or second cat, i've seen a chamber some ways down the exhaust pipe refered to as a second cat and as a pre muffler / resonator just wondering if anyone knows for sure.
my basic plan is if I can find just your basic 4-2-1 or 4-1 bolt on header go with just a high flow cat in place of that first muffler thing (assuming there is no post converter O2 censors that will get a bad reading) and just crappy muffler shop galvanized pipe maybe 2.25" or 2.5" depending on header size to a flowmaster 40 or glasspack/muffler combo.
But I can't find any headers like that anywhere except for the evofusion and flexpipe thing or that crap link I found with no picture.
also its on lease under warranty, does anyone know what kind of mods void the warranty? I would immagine that anything before the stock cat would maybe the intake stuff, but im not sure.
