Info: APEXi Intake

APEXi Intake

Date: June 6th, 2004
Cost: $130
Time: 1.5 hours


An intake serves two purposes: filtering air and letting that air in the engine. Most stock filters don't do a great job of either, but many aftermarket filters let in a lot of air at the expense of not filtering as well. After quite a bit of research, I concluded that the APEXi intake was the best of both sides.


Though an intake isn't going to make a huge difference in power on a turbocharged vehicle, I did notice the difference in sound. After installing this intake, I was surprised by how much I could hear the turbo spooling. I enjoy hearing the sound, but other people might not.
