Product Description:

New results require new ideas. That's why we took a somewhat unconventional approach when it came time to design our k-swap cold air intake. Our hope was to provide something that could improve upon the performance and appearance of competing cold air intakes...and the finished product is just that. What we ended up with was a true 3" intake that does a better job of keeping your intake charge cool and your engine bay looking hot.

The most obvious feature on this intake is the 100% glass-reinforced silicone construction. By using silicone, we were able to create an intake that actually insulates the air going into the engine. For k-swaps, this is particularly important since most setups put the cold air intake directly behind the radiator. What many people don't consider is that since aluminum is such a fantastic thermal conductor (hence why it is used in radiators), an aluminum cold air intake will actually absorb heat given off by the radiator. This increases the intake air temperature while decreasing the motor's performance. The silicone counteracts this by acting as a thermal barrier (much like header wrap)...this leads to lower intake air temps and a denser intake charge. Another benefit of the silicone construction is that there is no need for a coupler at the throttle body. The intake connects to the throttle body with just a single t-bolt clamp, meaning less turbulence as air enters the intake manifold.

A less noticeable but very important feature of this intake is that it works with RBC, RRC, and PRB intake manfiolds. Most competing k-swap intakes work with either the PRB intake manifold or the RBC/RRC intake manifolds, but not both. We took the extra time to create an intake that would work with all 3! We know that many k-swaps start out with a PRB manifold and are later upgraded to take advantage of the more desirable RBC and RRC manifolds. We wanted to take the cost of a new cold air intake out of that equation, meaning more money in your pockets. On top of that, we designed this kit to work with OEM k-series throttle bodies AND big bore throttle bodies. The included t-bolt clamp is custom designed to fit both applications.

And who can forget about looks...Everyone knows that with k-swaps, making power and going fast is the name of the game, but looking good while you do it doesn't hurt either. That's why we made this one of the cleanest looking intakes on the market. When installed, only the intake tube and a single t-bolt clamp are visible. The hanger that attaches to the chassis is neatly tucked into the driver's side fender for the cleanest install possible. Available colors include black, gray, and purple.

Very original intake. If a silicone tube is better than aluminum why has everyone been making them out of aluminum since forever? I'm curious to see what the difference in intake air temp is compared to an aluminum tube. I've been impressed with everything I bought from you guys so I think its safe to assume this intake will deliver.

Would these kit an em2 chassis with a k20A? and doesit need any support bracket(s)?
just looks kinda like it could move around during high speeds and harsh turns.. looks very good though!

It does fit the EM2 chassis. James did a install for us.

This is how I did the install. First you need to modify the upper radiator hose (Gates 21229).

Before modification:


After modification:


Installed:


Attach the hose to the water neck first and clamp it down. Then place the other end of the hose on the radiator neck. Before you clamp the hose down, twist the hose to the right so it bends down like this. This will give clearance for the intake.


Next, loosely install the intake & mounting bracket so you can mark the area where you need to drill for the mounting bracket bolt.

This is where I drilled and tapped mine. You will need a M10x1.25 tap.


This is how it should look with the intake and mounting bracket in place:


Next, you need to install the IAT sensor. You can install it anywhere between the T/B and 90* bend. Use a 7/16" drill bit to make the hole. Clean any debris left from drilling, then install the sensor.

Once that is complete, you can now finish up the install. Adjust the intake for best fitment. Be sure to leave enough room for the shifter counterweight to move around. This is how it should look like when you are finished (don't mind the velocity stack):

Im curious do you think this will fit a RSX with a Skunk2 Intake Manifold if so is does it install the same way as the EM2 mentioned in the above post??:mindboom:
