Turbokits.com have created a CAI and works for both man and auto. 2.0 and 2.4, i use it on my manual koup sx and its a great investment. The sound and feel of the car are amazing. When installing it you can see the development that went into it.

works on both, there is a special note in the instructions regarding autos, you need to bend your oil dipstick because it is in the way. If you search the forum you will see others who had that issue and were able to correct it very easily.

main thing about the auto's is there are two small hoses going into the intake. and manual only has one.

The line to the valve cover is just a breather line, you can leave that open or put a filter on it (best idea). You would then use the nipple on the intake for the Auto Tranny Vent! Done, 5 min extra during the install :)

I have a 2010 forte sx 5sp Auto

I do not have the 2nd air vent hose as show in the picture (the one going to the back firewall) I only have one going to my crank case for the recirculation.




Does anyone know if this was on '1st gen' forte factory intakes?

I have spoken to anothe forum member who has the TK CAI and also has the 2nd intake tube, he had to get a T splitter.



Any help - anyone?

It was just discussed in another forum, that the 2.4L has one and the 2.0L has two. It does not appear to be a difference in auto vs manual. I have a 2.4L auto and have only one tube. The second tube is to assist in braking. The 2.4L has larger brakes, so either not necessary or not feasible.

Yes, as we are learning more info about the differences. It seems it's only on the 2.0L. Once it gets warmer and people start coming out from hibernation, we'll get a 2.0L up here and check into it. In the meantime. Please use a Tee.

Thanks

Yes, that'd be helpful! I know you made a dual filter setup, but I'd like some more information on your "avoid the dipstick" setup.

In FL the 2.4s have one hose and the 2.0s have 2 hoses -- at least on all the Forte's I've looked at. There is a poster on this forum that says his 2.4 has 2 hoses -- I think those are the California emissions cars -- and the cars in 4 other states that adopted the California emissions levels too.

I was thinking it was only on 2l automatics as stated in:

http://www.forteforums.com/forums/k...iscussion/1936-sra-cai-hoses-3.html#post26319

(post under than by Mcfury indicates he has the 2l manual with 1 only)


maybe something to do with emissions from different states and possibly us/canada.

whats weird is that the 2nd hose is going to the Master Cylinder, - not anything that has to do with fuel economy or emissions - apparently it adds to 'brake pressure' (brake assist of some sort). Why wouldn't the 2.4l (sx) have this as the bigger brakes would need more hydrolic pressure to stop.

Ugh i've kinda given up on over thinking this, I know my sx has 1 hose nipple going from intake to engine, I guess thats all i need to know.

<but if someone finds out why its limited to just 2l - i'd be more than happy to find out>
