Cold Air Induductions (wow)

Just finished the install and couldnt be happier with this kit. Easy install and now my Borla Exhaust sounds ridiculous. You can really feel the extra kick. Highly recommend

Now you just need to get a Scoop and Windshield Washer Relocation Kit from Chase over at Apex, and you'll be set!

Absolutely! The scoop does make a difference in sound and get-up-and-go.

(But a dirty engine bay voids all warranties - just kidding - lucky for you).

This is cool, but did this actually change the tone of your Borla exhaust, or is the deeper engine note coming from the new open vacuum sound of the intake? Just curious.....

Meaner

I have just the Borla S-Type mufflers on the car now (Axel Back). No Doubt the tone of the exhaust changed more deeper and more of a head turner when you get on the car with the CAI. I tried to resist ordering the whole Borla kit X- Pipe (another 600 bucks thru Summit) but that lasted two weeks. Just got it yesterday probably will install this weekend. Interested to see how that will change the tone and level

Installed the Borla X- Pipe today. You can hear the difference at idle. Little more raspier on acceleration. Pretty sweet set up. Now for the solo cats...

Ive actually thought about swapping my K&N out for one of these. I just know all these intakes are similar in performance, but I already have the adm scoop and WW bottle relocator. Thought the enclosed box and heat shield would be the only advantages over the K&N?
