CAI and Resonator Delete

Postby Zack » Thu Dec 17, 2015 2:46 pm

Thinking of getting a CAI and possibly doing an exhaust resonator delete. Not sure what CAI to get and not sure on the resonator delete either. My old intake was an Alta in my R53 but not sure if I should get that or another model. Thoughts?

Dont know as much about your vehicle, but the DDMWorks might be a good option. I'm sure WMW or another quality vendor could point you in the right direction. http://www.waymotorworks.com/ddmworks-c ... 6-r57.html

Edit: Actually, most things I am seeing on Way's site only say 2008-2010 R55

I have the N16 engine but I think the air box is the same as on the pre-face lift ones.

I have the AEM CAI on my r56. My only complaint is the plastic intake that attaches to the bottom part of the bonnet is held on by the little plastic trees that I seem to always be missing one.
