Momentum Intake System
QUICK FACTS Positive + Second Highest Peak Horsepower + Highest Horsepower in 3,500-4,000 RPM range + Highest Horsepower in 3,000-3,500 RPM range + Power Gains Across Entire Powerband + Less than 3% difference in average A/F Ratios vs OEM Negatives – Must drill boss on tube to run “sound tube”Overview: The Takeda BRZ/FR-S Intake System features a built in one-piece air scoop that captures cold air from the front of the vehicle to provide for the greatest gains in efficiency and performance. The rounded nose filter top is aerodynamic to reduce resistance and direct airflow smoothly into the intake tract. This filter features five-layers of progressively finer mesh for unrestricted airflow while keeping the engine safe. Analysis: Solid performance gains in an affordable system. A/F ratios are very close to OEM, yet additional performance is realized.
