This is one expensive piece of plastic with no proven gains. Stock one works just fine and doesn't cause any unnecessary turbulence to re-tune for.

You might get a few degrees cooler temps but only on the highway. Otherwise, this looks like a huge marketing gimmick to take everyone's money.

Answer from HKS:
Quote:
Installing the intake duct and Hybrid filter will help increase airflow into the engine but in itself will not significantly affect fuel consumption which is more directly related to how you drive the car with these parts fitted.

The Premium Suction Kit is designed and tested for use with the factory engine and ECU. It will not damage the vehicle and will not require a remap even when used with the Intake Duct.

Hey I'm not Mexican but I think a 2L soda pop bottle or a bleach jug could easily be adapted to the existing snorkel using plastic weld cement. The piece looks like it cost .50c to make, might as well make one for .50 c

@CSG Mike I saw you guys include this on your track packages. Is the main benefit throttle response? Also do you have any thoughts on this compared to a modded snorkel (i.e. cut and stretched wider)?

I'm about to get an intake and figure I'll mess around with the bumper at the same time. I had originally planned to just mod the stock snorkel but when I saw you guys sell it I figured you must think its worth something.

Going to be pairing the Airaid intake with this along with my Innovate SC w/ headerback exhaust and Delicious Tune.

With the stock intake I noticed a bit better throttle response when I added this duct. Nothing major but I'm sure it didn't hurt either.

Well, actually...

  1. Remove the stock intake.
  2. Remove all of the bolts / clips holding the hood seal on and remove the hood seal
  3. Remove the two bolts holding the bumper to the alignment tabs above the headlights (to give you just a bit more slack on the top lip of the bumper)
  4. Remove the 6 silver bolts (2 on top, 2 by the header, and 2 on either side of the bumper facing the front of the car) and 2 clips (next to the 2 bolts on the front side) that hold the crossmember on
  5. Gently pry upward on the bumper and wiggle the crossmember out
  6. Profit

Did this last night to mod my snorkel. Was SUPER easy, I've removed many many many bumpers in my day (I've owned 18 cars, all modded one way or another), and this was trivial in comparison to pulling a bumper.

Here's the Proof:






Note:

There is a bolt and a clip down here. I used a ratcheting wrench to loosen the bolt, then fished it out with my hands. If you pry up gently on the bumper with one hand, it should give you just enough clearance to get your other hand in there to get the bolt / clip out. The clip is exact same style as the ones that hold the hood seal on, so a thin flat head screw driver works well for popping them loose, just be gentle.

Just be careful not to drop either of them into the bumper. Taking care to do this right, is worth it. The effort spent on these two bolts and two clips is far less than removing the bumper.






Remove these two bolts down by the header.




And the best part.....

Bumper still fits like a dream

I just did this to install my duct without removing the bumper.

@Slysdexia @johan how much do you have to lift the top of the bumper to squeeze the snorkel back in? Does your HKS duct scrap against anything as you slide it back in? Reason I ask is because I decided to put heat reflective tape on mine and would like to try and avoid scraping it off.

Thanks!

wonder if any one of those replica companies willing to create a knockoff of this and slash the price by like half! Shouldn't be that hard to make a mold and inject plastic. Ain't paying $200ish for this with minimal or little gains. :/

This is why we can't have nice things.

False, these aftermarket snorkels are better and pull more air and in return are faster. I have the greddy snorkel andi can feel the difference. Also i have beaten other members from my 86 club with very similar parts yet still beat them because of the greddy snorkel.

Or maybe you are a better driver

Also I hope you are not racing on the streets

Butt dyno, I assume. I highly doubt your overpriced piece of plastic makes you win.
