Hey All,

need some mod advice on 2 mods I'm looking to do to my car

1st one is an intake.  I'm considering doing an intake in my car but not sure since it's a turbo and I don't want the intake to overpower the sound of the exhaust.  Wanted to see what opinions/advice you all had regarding that.

2nd is a chrome delete.  I'm thinking of doing matte black vinyl on the exterior chrome trim on the car and wanted to see everyone's opinion on how you thought it would look.

 

thanks in advance for any advice anyone can give on the above 2 topics

Are you running a stock exhaust? Generally the intake sound increase is minimal. I would recommend going with a cold air and plastic unit with an air filter box. This is usually much quieter than a short ram and constructed of aluminum.

I personally like the way your car looks with the chrome.

@shane-hudson, I’ll be running a muffler delete from remark once it comes in.  If i did an intake, I found an AEM one for the car.  The only reaslu i was a little hesitant is because I put an intake on my car when I had a veloster turbo and the intake sound was definitely louder.  Definitely something ill have to think about, thanks for the input.

intakes are a great mod and won't overpower your exhaust sound. you get a really nice purr in the front from the intake and the exhaust out the back!
