Hyundai Intake

The factory intake of your Hyundai isn't necessarily ideal for making horsepower. Engineered with NVH concerns in first in mind, your stock intake system could be robbing your Hyundai's motor of valuable horsepower. Upgrading your Hyundai's intake system can free up power and lets your motor breathe much easier, allowing it to respond more quickly to every press of the throttle.

What kinds of Intake System Upgrades are there for my Hyundai?

Installed Intake on Hyundai volster
There are types of intake upgrades available and each offers its own pros and cons. Not all Air Intake Upgrades are the same. Some of the most common types include: Cold Air Intake Systems, Ram Air Intake Systems, Short-Ram Air Intake Systems and Performance Replacement Air Filters.

What is a Cold Air Intake and what will it do for my Hyundai?

Cold air Intakes Intakes for Hyundai Genesis

Colder air is denser in oxygen, and so colder air makes more power. A cold air intake is designed to bring cool air to where you need it. Many inexperienced enthusiasts are of the opinion that a "cold air intake” is a conical filter smashed onto the MAF sensor housing - and that's simply not true. The fact is, a proper Cold Air Intake is much more than a cone filter. A true CAI reroutes the intake path to suck in cooler air from an outside source, usually relocated to pull cool air from the the fender or in the bumper ahead of the radiator. By drawing air from a cooler, outside source, the intake avoids ingesting the hot air hanging around in the engine bay.

Cold Air Intake systems often feature a sealed airbox or have a heat shield to insulate the intake against hot air. Maintaining a cool incoming air charge is important, because colder air, being more dense, has more oxygen, creating a better air/fuel mixture, allowing your Hyundai's powerplant to develop more power and operate at peak efficiency.

On Turbocharged Hyundais like the 2.0T Genesis Coupe and Veloster are responsive to modifications. Most Hyundai Intake systems, though well engineered, are designed to keep sound levels down to a level that will please the average car consumer. This quiet operation comes at the expense of air flow, and that in turn, costs horsepower. By installing a free-flowing intake, you're allowing your Seoul engineered motor to achieve its full potential. We offer "Cold Air Intake" systems from AEM, K&N Filters and Injen Technology.

What is a Short-Ram Air Intake for Hyundai?

Short Ram Air Intake Injen short Ram Air Intake

A short-ram air moves the filter closer to the throttle inlet, usually right at the mass air sensor, shortening the intake path and thereby increasing throttle response. This is one of the least expensive ways to upgrade the intake of your car, however this primarily benefits throttle response and the sound of your intake.

The downside of course, is that without a heat shield, the car is ingesting in hot air from underhood, instead of denser, colder air outside. We offer short-ram type air intake upgrades from AEM,Injen Technology andK&N Performance.

What is a Drop-In Air Filter Upgrade?

This is the easiest way to enhance the intake system of your Hyundai, and the least expensive. This straightforward "OEM+" level upgrade just means replacing the restrictive OEM Air Filter with a high-flow replacement filter. We offer Drop-In performance replacement filters from K&N Filters and more.
