I picked this intake over the bandwagon PRL cobra intake for price reasons it was about $100 difference and couldn’t justify it being $100 better than this intake and I really just wanted an open intake without a box but not a short ram because I wanted the sound effect mainly. It did not disappoint I LOVE the sound difference you can 100% hear the turbo now (stock exhaust). The install is alittle on the complicated side as far as intakes go alittle more involved than I anticipated having to go behind the wheel well with the filter. The asthetics of the intake are good I like the look in the engine bay and it seems to be pretty solid good quality materials. More so I was impressed with the customer service from TSP and will definitely be buying the majority of my parts from them!
A Cold Air intake system relocates the filter outside of the engine compartment to deliver the coolest air inlet temperatures possible. Cooler air carries more oxygen, which translates into a more intense explosion in the combustion chamber to create more horsepower and torque. But that's only part of the power equation. Tuning the inlet pipe in length and diameter to match the engine's resonance helps move more air to the cylinders (think of your engine as a big air pump), and no company on the market can tune an inlet as well as we can. We also monitor fuel trim correction factors and all OBDII sensors during R&D to eliminate leaning the engine out and/or throwing a check engine light.
