Thumbs up

20K on my K&N typhoon and no problems at all, 3 cleaning too. Just be smart about the oiling and how much you use, or should I say, how much you DON'T use! I let the cleaner sit for 15 mins, then rinse and shake it out real good, let it dry good and then oil lightly with one pass, that's it

would you consider the intake as too loud or intrusive for everyday driving?

Not at all, I drive mine over an hour everyday, in town and on the highway commuting for work and with the radio on it doesn't bother me at all. Even with the wife and kids in the car there are no complaints.

And like SickFit said "its perfect and really just meant to wake your engine up a bit". Its nice to hear what my engine is doing compared to how it was stock

the dyno chart do corresponds with the intake.. torque throughout the band..
luv the high end after hitting pass 5k rpm..
low end not as fast as my previous Takeda CAI..
The metal heatshield do perform veri well.. not as hot as expected unlike the takeda piping.. the fitting is just nice..
it growl louder too than takeda..
overall prefer the GruppeM over Takeda...

I also bypassed the coolant hose around the throttle body. It wasn't very hard. I used the coolant hose that came with the kit. I ran it from the thermostat housing to the back of the block just above the transmission. Follow the path of the coolant hose through the throttle body and down to the back of the block. Remove all of the hoses and take the short route from the thermostat housing to the nipple on the rear (or right side if you prefer) of the block. The passenger side being the front of the block. I did go to my local auto parts store and found a larger hose that the one from the kit would slide inside of (with a little lubricant) that made a 180degree bend. I slid the kit hose through the bigger hose and attached it to the nipple on the block. The thicker hose only keeps the skinnier kit hose from kinking and also protects it from chafing on the metal bracket that holds the heater hose. Attache the other end of the kit hose to the thermostat body nipple.

A simpler and cheeper solution would be to disconnect both hoses from the throttle body and hook them together using a double ended nipple. It does not look as neat but would accomplish the same thing.

The radiator coolant runs through the throttle body to keep it from freezing up in sub 0 degree weather. I live in SoCal so weather is not an issue.

Cooler air = more oxygen = more horsepower. Heating the incoming air in the throttle body results in warming the incoming air.

While I had the radiator drained I also added a bottle of Water Wetter. It helps with radiator heat exchange.

could you take picture were was the hose that can be disconnected cause the weather that i live is dry and hot,

Bump from the Dead...

After reading several pages of Intake threads (DIY and Intake System) still unsure of what to go with.. Don't mind getting my hands dirty and getting the stuff for DIY, but still unsure bout all the CELs people are getting..

Anyone know if this would fit in a 2010 Automatic?
Takeda Intake, Takeda Air Intake System

Also, looked into getting this beast, but not sure about fitment as well...
Rakuten: 1000 2 (carbon type) TOPFUEL (top fuel) ZERO1000( zero) power chamber type fitting GE6/GE8, Freed GB3 use- Shopping Japanese products from Japan

AND, does anyone know of any other CAI or SRIs that are now available for the 2010 Automatic?

Hope people are still looking through this thread!!! Would loved to be helped..

IMO, the PRM is still the best intake. Shortest path to the throttle body, no CEL's, and the filter is internal so incoming rain water has no negative effect. What most people don't realize is that the stock intake system is a CAI. No need for an after-market intake to route incoming air from anywhere other than where the stock system picks up air- at the firewall behind the brake reservoir. The shorter and simpler the intake, the better it works.

The PRM fits with any transmission. Maintenance is exactly the same as for K&N-style cotton gauze filters. Wash, dry, re-oil and reinstall.
