its worth a read, some of the people on here need to take a read and do some research, CAI's are not going to deliver, ice cold air, but it will in fact reduce turbulence, and it provides a more direct root and eliminates muffling devices, made by the engineers to produce a quiet car that the "public" will like.

The thread you posted is actually a 2012, so is very relevant to this set up.

No thanks Its a great setup but I dont agree with them not changing that stock wrinkle piping... A CAI sells from AEM for that price. All new piping. I mean dont get me wrong its nice but it leaves alot to be wanted.

They should of spent the extra 20 bucks in piping to make that work.

Steedas intakes have always been to reserved unfortunately.

During their testing, replacing the stock intake tube yielded very little (next to nothing) vs the cost of having it added in. When I talked to the designer Chad, he said it just wasnt worth the added cost for the peace. They may add something done the road like they did with the fiesta intake, and have it as an optional item.

Would this void the factory warranty?

Warranty can no longer be "Void" they now have to say if the part that was damage was affected by the part you installed and they will say if your warranty will cover it.. But your warranty will not be void.

Yeah I'm not exactly thrilled about the price. I was hoping it would be in the high $200 range at most.

I'll wait a bit to see FSWerk's intake, but I'll probably end up with this one.

FSWerks will likely get my business with their stealth exhaust anyway.
