<b>AHHHH Croci, look at the size of the wamdingo!</b>
sup guys, I'm sorry, I will have to lock and move this post... We at KORE don't want to be part of a "who's better?" type of posts, so we'll leave it to the rest of the guys to try and prove it... thanks man, I'll move it to NA forum... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
Has anyone tried/compared/tested - HVE, Kore and AOS?
I do realize it is difficult to compare dyno results without any air flow (all things being equal). Or what about a G-tech reading? Has anyone done any non-biased type of tests?
as the hve intake is place in front of the car and therefore having alot of exposure to engine bay heat (even though they use carbon fiber). It does take in cold air, prolly lots of it, but then in runs into the heat, then the factory airbox, which is pretty damm restrictive!
as for the KORE intake, for your tibs, you have 3 inch piping from the tb to the filter (cone filter which lets in lots of air) which is located in the wheel well, therefore reducing exposure to engine heat. As well, it does not use the factory airbox, it's a 3" pipe STRAIGHT to the tb! I think that it would let more air in the motor faster, therefore making it a better choice for power. But that is only my opinion.
also if u notice, most of the "super" compacts today use the design KORE is using to draw in air. I don't think that is a coincidence!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
I'd definately say KORE over HVE intake wise!<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Now let's put those Honduhs to shame!!
***IR2 is an angel***
I'm not pretty sure how many more wheel HP a CAI could give, maybe 2 to 4 (if no other mods), but another signifficant attribute on CAI is the sound it produces. I don't think the HVE sounds as good as an exposed cone like KORE's, AOS's or others like that probably makes. Besides, I think HVE's CAI is made for the ppl that don't want to make much changes on the engine bay, thus it leaves the stock air box, which I agree is not the best for a clean stream of air, hot or cold.
I have the HVE, bought it off one of our fellow members who never used. I must say it is a beautiful piece. Carbon Fiber, and the finish is real nice and shiny. As far as performance, it did improve nicely, and it sounds excellent. The fit wasn't great, the part that connects to the airbox is a little wider than the hole of the airbox, so I need to find a piece of foam to seal it off. I also had to put a nut under the space between the hangar and screw to make it align better. My Hyundai service manager put it in for me, he had to drill a hole and stuff I tipped him $6.
