I guess I should have posted the link to my install of the TurboKits CAI in this Thread. So here it is.


I will make a video when I install my spoiler shortly.

It's niiice I'm gonna order one as soon as I get some more $$. One question though the intake seems to be pointed downwards, if it rains water won't get in it will it?

The only way for water to get into it would be to submerge your front end enough to cover the fog lamps.

No it is inside the wheel well behind the fog lamps which is well covered from splashes.

I will take it off for service, takes about 5 minutes if you have done it once. Beats having to bicker with the service managers.

There is no reason this would void anything since there isn't even an air sensor involved. Just more air and better filter.

I asked my service manager here at the dealership i work at (ron bouchards kia) and he told me it voids warranty. Does that stop me from getting an intake and when going into service removing it..... absolutely NOT! :)

3 inch tubing is used on TurboKits and the stock air intake on the engine is 2.5inch approx. (probably metric). You can use a measuring tape to see how far you want to run your tube. K&N air filter is just a narrow filter (to fit down into front area which has a tight opening) with a 3 inch diameter opening to fit onto the tube if you go 3 inch. Injen looks like they used a 2.5 inch tube.

I'm having trouble getting my pipe to fit in correctly. Any tricks to getting it snug? I see a big hose down near the fog lamps with a smaller hose. Does it split between them?
