What are you looking for?Am i better off getting a HKS panel filter or an AVO intake with a POD filter on the end? Keeping in mind that I wont be getting it tuned afterwards. Thanks
It should be fine as long as no other power adding mods are done to the car i,e. Downpipe boost controller, etc. That being said, since the DP and increasing boost require a tune anyways, grab the CAI for nowI want the sound of the intake but dont want to lose any more power. By heat soak im guessing you mean that it will suck up hot air from engine bay?
Is the cold air one just the one that goes down into your bumper with the heat sheild?
Yes but it can be without a shield like Perrin, Ultimate Racing, or Harman Motive
Also if im not going to tune, is it still ok to put this type of set up on or is it better to just go with the high flow panel filter?
I'm running a CAI tuned and had the K&N and Perrin panel on current and previous STi. 10-12whp gains from tuned map.What did you go with? Im thinking of the HKS drop in cause its cheap as, and heaps of people on here dwear by the air box standard.. Ive always been a pod guy so Im not sure and curious as to whether a drop in does ANYHING!?
