You are not going to gain much from an intake. Some will sound louder and have more turbo spooling sound. 10hp and 0.10 reduction is all I measured from the Dinan intake. Very nice intake, but the factory intake has very low pressure drop (I measured that too).

Have you measured the RK intake yet?

No I have not. But , once you get to zero pressure drop....no more improvement is available.

One thing the RK design (or any open element design) will bring to the table is much, much better inlet sound.

I’d also get it to a dyno to confirm the health of the tune. With your two mods, the M should be crazy fast.

It could be where the bottle neck is.
You may want a less restrictive muffler.

But before that, do a dyno first like onfireX5 said.

My vote RK Intake. On the pricey side but the sound it makes. I truly believe it makes power. No dyno to support but I sold my Dinan for it

Car under load sounds completely different. Been trying to get to it for so long and never took the video. But think itís time. I am running a full tune so my intake noise would be different. Under full load the car sounds like a jet taking off.

Paid like 1600 for it. Donít remember. Got a slight discount as an early adopter. Think I was the second set on the chassis. Out of all the mods and money spent on the car this and the KW were the best money spent
