Standard Intake on 2017 Comp.
« on: November 14, 2019, 11:07:02 am »
Hi all ,

I have a 595 2018 180 hp comp and am in the process of buying an ATM intercooler and am wondering about the intake on this car.
I really would like to keep it standard, are these intakes really that restrictive?

Thanks for any and all input.

Tim.

    Hi Tim,
    From what we have tested, the stock intakes really aren't that restirctive.

    The only real improvement that we have seen is from cold air feed, but even then the gains aren't usually that significant.

    Glad to hear this, I also plan to change the intercooler and was looking for a cold air intake like the Forge ... if it doesn't really make much difference I have to ask myself if it's worth doing this. Most of the intake systems I've seen have left a mess under the hood except the Madness system, they sell a alu plate with Scorpion cut out to fit over the engine.

    I ended up fitting a carbon scara73 intake a bit like the biposto one and it does make a difference. The car has a Scara flash tune so it is mapped for the intake along with 200cell and ATM intercooler.
