Au Xr8 Cold air intake

The only cold air intake I can find for Au xr8's is the SS inductions unit.
Anyone know of any others to do a comparison with.

Web address's if possible

Re: Au Xr8 Cold air intake

It has been shown that the AU XR8 snorkle will provide more than enough air for around 240-260kw, so I would just say stick with it. The SS one can flow more air, but unless you have some serious mods on board, it will not give you anything.

Re: Au Xr8 Cold air intake

A cheaper alternative would be to cut a hole under your airbox and lead some tube to the front of the car from the airbox.

Re: Au Xr8 Cold air intake

I infact got an SS induction kit from a contact. Had it for months now and haven't fitted it after seeing its not much better than the Tickford one anyway. Plus it doesn't look as good as the genuine one and obviously the Tickford logo looks heaps better than having SS.
Its only worth changing once you have changed your complete exhaust.

Re: Au Xr8 Cold air intake

I made up a stainless steel scoop and placed it infront of the Tickford one, and it works pretty good. It cost me nothing as I had it lying around. I will try and get a picture up here soon
