Congrats 1self. You must have done it at Darshan Tyre at Kothrud as the person there is a friend of me and he was telling me day before that he has installed Apollo in Elentra and the person was very happy with the results. I never knew that it was you.

Nice one Vivek. I thought you ordered a CAI from Korea or somewhere. Enjoy the transformation. BTW, guys 1self drives a Petrol Elantra which might have a different air intake unlike Tadu's diesel.

No, it is one size fits all...but WHAT a size....rated for upto 350 BHP engines!!!

Your motor will have all the air it wants & then a LOT more!!

& yes...THAT is the definition of a restricted in take....

You won't believe how 'UNLEASHED' my engine has become.....seriously....making some serious power....

See the pics.



Such a ridiculous air intake. Wonder if there's signboards inside the pipe for U turn, L turn etc.. Air flow would be affected a lot in this. This is the worst air intake I've ever seen. It can be completely agreed as a Restrictive air-intake

Great to know you're benefitting from this upgrade 1self. Great choice of upgrade too. I like the idea of 'remove the pipe and it acts as a ram intake'.

Do add a Tri-phase to your car later on.

@1100D - the air filter is housed in the upper box ( in the stock 'teda-meda' AI ) - the one kept on the granite. No idea whats the use of 2nd box. In corsa, There's just one box.

Hi,

The purpose of the other box (as explained by the hyundai service centre fellows) is to prevent any vaccum developing when the engine wants instantaneous air....as when sudden accleration happens...also to reduce the noise of the air intake...at moderate & full throttle levels....this is true...but when the noise is so s*xy, who would want to reduce it?
