K&N intake

So K&N have a cold air intake and i bought it and installed it. Gives new tone to the car and was really easy to install. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade parts. Will post more pics and "critiques" as I get more parts.

Did you notice any power gains?

I assume there isn't a lot of power gain with just an intake mod, but good to know you're enjoying the change in sound. May look into one as well, how much was yours?

I noticed some modest improvements with mine (DCT). Same set up.

How different is the tone? Do you mind posting if you get the chance?

I'm assuming you can now hear the factory blow off valve? The whole reason I did the K&N swap on my Genesis was to hear that sound aha. Its the main reason I don't think I can go back to a non turbo car. Glad to hear you also have plans on an aftermarket exhaust as its usually suggested they get swapped together. Be sure to less us know the changes in performance, once you've completed your mods.

Yes you can hear it after the intake is installed, but it's technically a bypass valve and not a true blow off valve. I just had a custom exhaust mad up and installed. When i have the time i will make a video with so you all can hear the sound of it.

Anyone who wants the BOV to sound more pronounced should look into getting a spacer. Personally I wouldn't do it, but a lot of people have with other cars. I believe the Fiesta and Genesis communities do it a lot.

I mean if you want it to be more pronounced wouldn't it make sense to actually buy an aftermarket BOV? What is this spacer you are talking about? I know there were also BOV silencer deletes with the stock intake, that basically involved switching around the intake plug. Looking forward to hearing your new set up, and its great to see you guys delving into modification.
