i30 SR Air Intake
« November 07, 2018, 02:02:30 »
Hi All new to this forum,

Just seeking some guidance down the pathway of modifying my i30 SR

so basically I was following a forum thread elsewhere which linked me to this: https://www.knfilters.com/search/product.aspx?prod=69-5317TS ...
Me being me i went down to auto pro canning vale and asked the man if it would fit my i30 SR (1.6t) as the post i read said it would.
He didn't really confirm it would fit he just said 'the system says it matches' and that was not exactly comforting enough to drop $800 based on that answer.

so i took it in my own hands to asses my engine a bit more (please don't judge me I seriously know nothing) and noticed there is a connection on my vehicle that is not here on what he's suggested me.

Will attach both images for a better understanding (ignore the red circle look at the green one's).








I however have found this product that looks like what I am chasing but doesn't have a heat shield which i would prefer so I don't get my car flagged.. oh and it also doesn't come with the Pod Filter... so really it doesn't fix a thing :(

Thanks everyone!

Jordan.

Minor improvements in performance and economy I believe. I have replaced my air filter with a K & N Filter which some say makes a slight difference (obviously not as much as this though)  :cool:

Just read up on the benefits of replacing the air intake - apparently more power.

No thanks, the current stock setup already too powerful for me.  Last night went off the M5 to the City, i was happily driving along in leisure pace until i looked down at the dash - 110km/hr.  The power and the handling of the car make it so misleading, it is so easy going over the speed limit. 

This car will get me a ticket in the future if i am not careful.

They are a beast in 6th or 7th gear when passing. I have to make a real conscious effort to reign her in after getting past!  :crazy1:

Last night I had to do a quick 100 km trip to Launceston for a 45 year school leavers catch up. I was being buzzed by a Lexus 250 even though I was doing 114 kph by the speedo. He eventually zoomed past. About 5 kms up the road I saw flashing lights.. The cops had got him!  :snigger:
