I started with a short ram, It was ok other than a loss of power under 2k rpms. Upper rpm gain was nice, so was the sound.
Switched to a full CAI, regained lost torque and then some. Nice gains up top, very quiet
Well my AEM broke and it floods to much here so I made a semi CAI
I think this damage happened before I did my mounts but I dont feel like gambling 40 dollars to try again
after finding this broken (BTW it wasn't totally snapped on the car just after I tried to take it out) I cut the lower pipe and made a flexable pipe thing to stop furthur stress from engine movment.
yes i know i need to clean the engine bay......
What I noticed
- Same low end torque as full cai
- Same top end pull
- Doesn't get "boggy" after driving all day like SRI did
- VERY freakin noisy when you go WOT above 3k, sounds like a b16 going into vtec... skeird sent me a video and i varified that, lol
My arse dyno says it has the same performance gains as a "normal" accord intake for the elantra just with a lowered chance of hydrolock and alot more noise... if you like that kinda thing. Id rather have the lower noise but thats just me. Ill take a sound clip when I find a charger for my camera.
Lastly I need to find a way to brace the battery or turn it to the side. For some reason its over another 1/4 inch from when I had a CAI.... maybe it just seems like it. Either way I fear that battery holder plastic thing is going to break one day. :dead:
All I have to do that is duct tape the vents just in front of the tire. I dont have foglights so the area right under the filter is getting a good amount of air. Im going to try that turn the battery thing soon.
