i have a spectre cold air intake on my spectra and its amazing! sounds aggresive and gave me better acceleration, gas mileage kinda went down alittle bit, but performance wise, its great.

You bought it from the same company? It fit with no issues? I want to get one, and would prefer not have to modify anything.

I bought a CAI for my elantra (when I had it) and I had to cut away some of the engine bay to get the piping to fit properly. I also bought it from ebay.

I used a zip tie to keep it from moving instead of the nuts and bolts so I didn't check for fit ment issues but its perfect the way it is maybe ill finish the full install sometime but idk

I just received my Turbokits.com CAI for the Veloster to see if it will fully fit the Rio. I'll be installing and video recording it this coming weekend. I got the black powder coated version and it looks awesome, great quality.

TK better, comes with heat shroud to block engine bay heat from filter. Injen is open to heat from engine.

Autoanything comes with a free hydroshield for Injen system you can get the CAI or SRI for around 185 to anywhere in States shipped

Don't need a hydro shield for the TK system since the filter sits around the same height as the stock filter. It has a tube that also runs lower into the wheel well to pull cooler air during idle but also pulls air from the heatshielded area and also uses a part of the stock air intake which feeds cooler air into the shielded box. Nice design they did.
Their dyno graph shows a decent increase in HP and Torque. I had a TK CAI in my previous 2010 Forte Koup so I trust their quality and support.
