This intake has been developed to deliver reliable power through out the entire RPM range. By allowing the turbo to breathe with less restriction by removing the OEM accordion hose and restrictive air box. Not only will you pick up HP and Torque you will also notice a song of wonderful turbo sounds while under acceleration. If you’re looking to maximize performance we highly recommend a Custom Etune and dyno tuning service through a Hondata Flash Pro tuning module.
The Injen intake is an easy bolt on part, simply remove the OEM accordion hose and air box and replace with the Injen parts. Injen has designed this intake to work smoothly with the OEM MAF (mass air flow) sensor to ensure good performance even on car running the stock ECU calibration.
