The SPT Air Intake is coated in new gunmetal gray-textured powder-coat finish. Installation of the High Flow Air Intake System will result in increaded turbocharger and diverter valve sounds during operation. This condition is indicative of normal operation.
The SPT Legacy GT High Flow Air Intake is constructed of 319 diecast aluminum, manufactured to ensure the smoothest high flowing bends. Each system includes a silicone reinforced boot, anti-vibration mounting system, stainless steel t-bolt clamps, and a SPT 4-layer cotton gauze filter with a built - in velocity stack for smooth air flow. The SPT Heat Shield helps ensure that the SPT Intake is able to supply the engine with cool air, which reduces the loss of power that comes from a heated intake charge. Cooler air is drawn from inside the passenger front wheel well and behind the headlight - not from the hotter areas surrounding the turbo charger, engine and radiator. Unlike a traditional cold-air intake, which places the filter element as low as possible in the vehicle, this setup helps to supply cool air, limiting the risks of water ingestion.
We highly recommend a tune with this intake.
