Thumbs up K&N Apollo C.A.I.

Hey Guys,

Just installed a CAI for my vehicle (Elantra GLS). I had initially put in a stock K&N panel filter...did not find too much difference.

When i was removing the OEM system & installed this, i came to know the complicated way in which the OEM intake is set-up. Took the guys at Darshan tyres a good 2 hours to get the intake out. I mean it takes a 'U' turn, then an 'S' turn, before finally going into the resonator box, from where it takes another short 'L' turn before reaching the throttle....my gawd...what complications...

See the pics.










After installation...the change is ENORMOUS...her low end torque is positively s*xy. So is the sound at ALL rpm's. Love the makeover...i really wonder WHY Hyundai makes such a convoluted intake for this vehicle when for the other models it is rather simple....any ideas?

i find the torque is already pretty good in the elantra.. but it probably flies now.

Hey, congrats for the new intake! my god... the twisted & turned stock intake really is funny! how much money does one need to get one of these!?
I think even if the stock one drew cold-air, all those bends must be wrecking a havoc at high revs. am i right?

There are gills but to make the most of them you need a high performance air filter, even Optra has gills for better intake.

1self - Congrats, now how about a FFE and then a turbo

looks sexy dude! Isn't it a better idea to wait for the rains to stop before doing this? or does it have a way to prevent water getting in? we wouldn't want that now, would we? How much did you shell out for this?
OT: BTW...Had a blast at Oasis

Default Price Etc.

Hey Guys,

Cost me 7990 flat...darshan tyres did the entire removal of the old one & fitting of the new intake.

@Vikram: The pipe leading out from the intake side of the filter is detachable....simply remove it & it turns into a short ram intake!!! Cool ain't it!?
