    When you do the cold air intake, give photos and shoot a little video of the sound. Ebay has some interesting models, so does 6thEE - so show what you get
    Very nice photos.
    Did you post exhaust video on youtube?

    I was going to post a video today of the exhaust but it started to snow, Hopefully tomorrow I can get one. I plan on doing some write-ups and tutorial videos. I've noticed there isn't much out there for the Forte Koup.

    I'm actually leaning towards TurboSocks this intake in orange.
    otherwise I was going to order the 6EE RAI.

    I'll keep ya posted.

    Those are excellent looking CAI with nice fat pipes. Wild colors. No snow where I live but shoot video when you can. Definitely keep the forum posted.

    I can vouch for the 6thee short ram. I've got nothing but quality from everything I've ordered from him.

    Crosive - what's your opinion on the throttle response, mpg increase, horsepower etc. Do you like the supplied air filter on the 6thEE CAI?

    Throttle response is better. Mpg went up 1-2 mpg over stock. Horsepower increase is subjective.

    This was with the intake on a 2015 manual, and a 2016 auto.

    I'm using a k&n filter that I already had that was "dirty" already. I'm not using the filter that came with it.

    Another reason IMO to have a CAI is that they perform very well at high altitudes. When I drive to Reno, NV going over 7000 foot elevation summits, you can hear non-turbo cars just sucking and hissing in the thin air. Whereas turbo cars with fat intake pipes and large filters have no trouble on the climb.
