Skunk2 CAI intake kit

Finally got my hands on one of these beasties for testing.

Click the image to open in full size.

First impressions.... It's big. Really big!
It's a composite material so very light as well. Going to try and get it tested pretty soon and give some feedback.

OH oooH OH

can you do a back to back with the stock sized MAF housing and a full 3.5inch delete to see if it is holding it back.

I don't know price yet but they are commercially available and have been for some time. First ones went to Australia for testing on RHD FN2's several months ago and didn't hear anything negative.

Nom nom...is this a FN2 specific kit or will it require bodging to make it fit? I recall a member from N.I. had to modify one to fit.

Not sure. Am thinking I might need to cut the bonnet and have it sticking straight up. Special install method for uk residents due to high rainfall.

Stoney, do you mean a back to back comparing the MAF housing on the OEM intake pipe vs the S2?

No the S2 kit above comes with std size maf housing to keep the stock tune happy and a 3.5 joiner so you can maf delete and go big.


I'd like a back to back test

Looks a good bit of kit, where will the filter sit once fitted?

Looking forward to this as an alternative to my current setup...added bonus since my S2 TB is still waiting to go on.

Near/behind the foglight, IIRC.

Looks good

Prob me being naive, but, If the filter sits way down there, what is the procedure for changing it?

Will the bumper need to be taken off for each change?

I would say you need to take the bumper off unless you want to take the whole intake out every time you change filters

EDIT: The same with CPL CAI right?

You can get in through the arch liner. Just a few clips.

Is it possible to run this Skunk CAI with the Fog Scoop's? Or would to air intake just get soaking wet?

I'd suggest fitting a hydroshield if fogs are removed but have to see exactly where the filter element atually sits
