    Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    I noticed this intake upgrade from Fabspeed.
    Would this be a wise mod ? Hp gains? Good sound ?
    Surprising that the right hand side of the air intake on the standard system is smaller than the left !?
    Here is the link for the video.

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    Actually I'm afraid in this configuration, your engine will suck up loads of hot air, not to good IMO

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    Looks nice...but I agree - too much exposure to hot air. Can't imagine it enhances performance at all. If you want to improve airflow try a BMC replacment filter - much less expensive.

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    Impressive sound....

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    Has anyone tried the one from Werks/Champion? This is the one that I plan on getting:

    Under "AIRBOX"

    Love the CF

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    FS is coming out with a modification to that box which will work very well.

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    Personally, I don't think it looks very good. The Werks intake however on the other hand looks incredibly sexy. What matters though is how well they perform. I'm told that there's not much of a benefit going with aftermarket intakes in the Turbos.

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    It only looks good. Maybe if they move the cones to our side intakes and it will make more power?

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    How much is the Werks unit?

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    That FabSpeed narrator guy... he ALWAYS sounds like he's about to either have a heart attack or bust off in his pants.

    Modification in what way?

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    He's put in a heat shield btwn the intakes and the engine, cf I think. Details soon I think.

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    I got mine for $3,500 from Champion Motorsports. I used to have the Fabspeed intakes on my turbo. Great sound. Very intoxicating.

    But like most of you, I am worried about the hot air being sucked into the turbos. And I live in a very hot and humid country. That's why I changed over to the Werks 1 unit.

    I have a call into Champion now to ask some questions, guess they're not calling me back so I should probably give them a call again but anyway....

    Could you post some pics with the Werks unit on your car?

    Did they have to remove the rear bumper? If so I'm thinking of having the airbox done w/ the exhaust. tia~

    Re: Fabspeed Intake kit..What do you think ?

    love to see those photos of Werks unit...

    No need to remove rear bumper.Installed it myself and it took me about 20 minutes.

    I will post pics in a few days including pics of the Werks 1 rear diffuser
