Test drove a very hot Mini-Cooper some years ago. The "Cold Air Intake" was via the middle of the dashboard; two trumpets (no filter) fed a large Weber carbie. Sounded pretty good too!

Back in my foolish and , much younger days I ran with a crowd of very die hard mustang enthusiasts, we did a lot of street racing(I dont recommend,especially now-besides the danger factor ,the laws are much tougher) but we did go to the track. I would always take with me a big cooler filled with bags of ice. Between runs I would lay them out on and around my intake. It did help takes a few 10ths off..... but every time other racers waiting in the staging area would become alarmed because my vehicle was leaking a clear fluid, Being several were running some exotic fuels they became very concerned until I pulled up the hood and showed the bags if ice. The bags of ice was a trick my dad told me about that he used to do when street racing back in the 40-50's.

I own a Kia sportage with a G4GC 2L motor and I have turbocharged it.

Regardless of what you do to the intake it makes no differences on the dyno and so is the exhaust. Factory tune is extremely consistent, The power curve stops at exactly 73fwkws on multiple dyno runs with stock air box, pod, stock exhaust and no exhaust or cat. They were the first two things that I've tried before turbocharging it.

I put a a turbine into my intake in a Spectra 2006 2.0L (same engine as HyperGear), I saw a little change in the reponse of the throtle, felt in the gas pedal, but it also increased the fuel economy at least 15%.

I'm confident the more air you let in to the engine, the more efective mix you'll have, but I'm also agree to what HyperGear said about the exhaust system. Personally I don't like the very "roary" sound comming from everywhere except from the engine.

Here;s my 2 cents on this...

First of all i installed a cold air intake system...

It does increase performance.. the rule says 10 degrees cooler air from stock will give u 3.3% increase in HP..I have the rio 2015 and that means the say im 110 HP that means im around 114 HP..
