Sxth Element Elantra N Air Intake Kit
The SXTH Element Engineering Elantra N Open Flow intake is the perfect start to modifying your Elantra N.
This intake is HUGE compared to OEM to help with pre-turbo pressure drop and the open element filter lets you hear all the turbo noises!
This intake system is a 100% bolt on install with no modification required. The Elantra N specific mounting bracket places the huge 4in air filter right in the path of the OEM air scoop path. Our filter adapter also includes a velocity stack for the intake tube.
The Intake Tube
Available in XPLE Plastic, our intake tube is 4 inches in diameter to relieve intake system pressure drop to help the turbo breathe as easily as possible. This material helps save weight too!
Our intake systems are designed using CAD and 3D scans of OEM parts and engine bays. This lets us make a perfect fit, every time.
We extensively tested intake air temperatures developing this intake. Why no "heat shield?" Well, after placing temperature probes in multiple places in the engine bay, after numerous dyno runs and road trips, heat shields added no benefit to measured temperatures except when the car is sitting still. When at speeds driving, airflow into the engine bay is so abundant, intake air temperatures measured in the intake system differed by only 2-3 degrees compared to our closed box system. So if you are looking for all the noise and a better price, this is the system for you.
Couplers & Clamps
We use the highest quality 5-ply silicone hoses and worm gear clamps for our tubing connections. The hoses are also designed in the computer for perfect fitment.
