I'm ready to install a new intake on my car, there are numerous co.'s that make them. Any suggestions would be appreciated..Also my dealer sells and installs Dinan products? What are your thoughts on their cold air intakes?
The big brands are Conforti, Dinan, ECIS, and GruppeM.
To give you a quick summary:
- Conforti and ECIS have similar designs. They use cone filter in the stock location w/ the air box replaced by heat shields.
- Dinan looks like the typical CAI on Japanese cars (design-wise), going down to the bottom.
- GruppeM has a unique design w/ its filter up against the headlight assembly.
Run a search to find more details. I don't think anyone is unhappy w/ their intake, although the Dinan tends to get dirty more easily b/c of its location.
