Didn't see this posted anywhere so wanted to make those aware who maybe missed it :banana:



The all new Takeda Retain Intake System produces up to 17HP and 15lbs. x ft. of torque over stock, while outflowing the factory intake by 21%. This intake includes both an oiled PRO 5R and an oil-free PRO DRY S air filter for maximum value. This gives the customer the option to run which ever filter desired, oiled or oil-free! A one piece powder-coated heat shield is used to protect the filter from unwanted hot engine air for maximum performance.

Takeda intakes come complete with all necessary hardware.

Tuned Intake Tube:
A dyno-tuned wrinkle-black powder-coated intake tube is used to smoothly direct the airflow into the engine with minimal restriction.

Factory Mounting Locations:
The use of factory mounting locations ensure a quality fit while maintaining a simple, hassle- free installation.

Heat Shield:
Included in this kit is a powder-coated heat shield which protects the filter from unwanted hot engine air for maximum performance.

Silicone Coupling:
A reinforced silicone coupling is used to connect the tube to the throttle body for strength and durability.

Thanks I didn't know this had been released. What is the expected lead-time should I place an order?

Am I supposed to believe a CAI will make my 3.5 sound more bad-A$$? I'd buy it just for that, but I am NOT a believer...

If someone says that's an actual before and after of the same car, I'd buy one right now. I don't know a whole lot about engines but if a CAI can make an exhaust sound like that I think a lot of muffler shops would be in trouble.

You're hearing more induction noise not exhaust noise.

Is there any reason why the polished intake is cheaper than the black one? Just curious.
The exposed metal may be less heat resistant maybe? Intakes play up the engine's doings more. Since they're so near the engine, you get to hear the machinery work, not just the explosions. They really amplify the sounds. You can clearly hear the high rpm lobe switchover. That alone is worth it for me. Intakes can do wonders, especially Takeda. Heard a bunch of their products in person.

part numbers at aFe (manufacturer?) TR-1021B-R has the two filter's, and TR-1021P-D only has the dry, I am not sure which website is right.

I'd trust the manufacturer. I wish the dyno graph was clearer

I'd be extremely surprised if this actually makes 17 hp. It def looks cool and I'll probably pick one up eventually... don't get me wrong, I have a KN intake on my 07, but that one only advertises an increase of 7-8 hp and I doubt it does even that much

Which is better of the 2? What's the difference?
The oiled filter supposedly increases flow slightly at the risk of letting a little more particulate matter in.

The dry filter cleans the air better.

So performance wise the oiled filter may be slightly better, and I mean slightly. But more dirt can get in the engine.
