    We just got word that the new Skunk2 Composite Cold Air Intake should be arriving very soon! We expect to have some in stock early November. I wanted to post this immediately so anyone who wanted one could get in on the first batch of them, because in typical Skunk2 fashion they will probably all be sold by the time they arrive. We're accepting pre-orders for them right now on our site. The price is $319.95 with free shipping:

    This intake has really been well thought out and engineered by Skunk2.
    • Like the 8th Gen Si Skunk2 Composite Cold Air Intake, this intake for the K24Z7 9th Gen Si uses a unique routing strategy and extra large piping to ensure maximum performance, especially on vehicles with other modifications that necessitate increased air flow.
    • The composite material is lightweight and provides great thermal insulation from the hot engine bay.
    • All the bends and tapers are smooth to prevent any turbulence.
    • The vertical oriented air filter is mounted higher than other typical cold air intakes to reduce the chance of the filter becoming submerged, even in very bad weather.
    • Dryflow air filter is reusable and will not contaminate your MAF sensor.

    I'll make sure we get some more pictures of the intake once we get them in stock. For now, here are some pics from Skunk2:

    I should have probably created this in the Intakes & TB sub-forum. Mods, can you move it?

    Thanks, I also updated the description to mention the dryflow air filter.

    That tube looks huge! Will this require a tune to use?

    Thanks Dar-Dar for clearing that up. Probably useful info for people who might not know FP is required.

    ^^^ Me three ^^^ and I have a 3.5 in. with relocation kit. It's low in the engine bay. If the winter is rough on the battery, I go Skunk 2 in the Spring. Real nice looking product.

    It's nice, but I wished that Skunk2 made the MAF housing a true 3.5". That housing is between 3"-3.5", probably 3.25ish" which makes the piping tapered down in the middle portion of the intake.

    Yeah, I noticed that. Wonder why they felt compelled to do it that way.

    For the 06-11 Sis, Skunk2 provided 2 housings. One for the MAF sensor and one for the IAT sensor. The IAT sensor housing is 3.5". It is probably the same for the 2012+ Sis.

    A FlashPro *should* not be required to use this intake. Of course it will help, but your car should run fine without the FlashPro. The reason is Skunk2 kept the MAF housing diameter the same as factory.

    Also it does come with everything needed to relocate the battery.

    It could be because the airflow takes a slightly different path around the MAF sensor due to the different bends (or lack of) in this intake. In theory, if the MAF housing is the same diameter, it should run fine.

    Since no one has installed this 9th Gen Si intake yet, I guess it's hard to say if a FlashPro will really be needed or not at this point.

    meh.... i like my relocate kit on the bottom in front of the transmission. it makes it look less cluttered in the engine bay.
