+ Responds exceptionally well to ECU reflash
+ Nearly a 10-percent gain in 4000-4500 RPM range
+ Retains factory airbox
– Not a peak performer in any RPM range
Overview: We were a bit underwhelmed with the performance of this system, even when compared to the stock intake system. With tuning, the intake really woke up and performed more on par with the other intake systems tested. The HKS intake improved torque production at very low RPM while maintaining positive gains in the mid range and across the top of the RPM band. Tuning also helped to minimize the midrange power dip.
Peak Results- HP: +8.46 @ 7100 RPM TQ: +7.04 @ 4750 RPM
Max Gains- HP: +15.49 @ 7300 RPM TQ: +15.45 @ 4200 RPM
Tech Notes: Power production with the HKS Premium Suction intake kit was less than stock on the stock ECU tune. With the help of the EcuTek we were able to coax more power out of the mid range and again at the top.
