If it improves mpg, then I'm definitely interested. I'm disappointed in the lack of intakes for our Fit, especially CARB legal ones.

In my experience it hasn't improved MPG, but certainly hasn't hurt it either.

I don't think you'd need CARB certification as this is just a scoop and not a change of filter, but not an expert.

Was changing out the air filter in my wife's Kia Forte SX the other day, her 2.4L engine has the very type scoop/intake/whateveryawannacall it stock from the factory, looks about the same as the prototype here, maybe even larger/wider. Now I want one even more on the Fit...

So what does it do? Is throttle response better? Power increase? Just more noise?

Does it make any differences or just suck up leaves?

Apparently there isnt enough of a sample size stateside that would suggest that it improves anything. But if 2Rismo2 agrees since he and I are the only ones with the air duct stateside, that at the very least it does improve throttle response, from my experience at the mid-range is noticeable. Since its gotten colder the past month where I live, intake temps have been cooler and throttle response a lot more noticeable in the colder environment. As far as sound, about a notch or 2 louder. Harder to tell now that I have the RV6 catless DP exhaust sound in the way.

My plan to dyno and share the data would help. Unfortunately I havent gotten to that point. Too busy modding the car still lol

Throttle response is better. Power increase, hmm not sure as I haven't dynoed it. It definitely pulls better at mid to high speeds though. Intake noise has increased as well.

I documented my experience starting here: Ram Air Intake

I found a couple videos that people may find interesting. One includes what appears to be the development of it. Pretty cool to see the fabrication process.

Anyone able to translate?
