question

does it really matter what kind of cold air intake you have if you have an itercooler? doesn't the intercooler bring in the most air as opposed to the the cold air intake? any thoughts? someone please educate me. thanks

the intercooler gets its air from the turbo.the turbo draws in air from the air intake.as far as "cold air intakes" i would just throw the 6637 filter on there.most on the site have it as well as myself and have no complaints.it works just fine,i think thats the napa part numer for it.do a search on diy intakes and you will find a bunch of info.also the air that enters the intercooler is cooled by by the fresh air passing through it.its basically a radiator,but instead of antifreeze its air flowing through it which will cool the air.

the term "cold air intake" is a little misleading. some kits say they draw in cooler air so thats where they get their name. the key thing, cooler air or not (not in most cases) is the fact they let more air in. the intercooler cools the charged air from the turbo compressor to keep the engine running cooler. so, really the intake and intercooler work hand in hand.
