Eventuri IMO is the best on the market currently. I noticed it was a bit more efficient compared to my HVI.
Drop in filters for the money are tough to beat though.
Won’t notice gains without a tune really
Hondata basemaps can be quite agressive / run lean. It can make more power or be more efficient but this is bad for coolant temps. This will cause the car to overheat much quicker on track. I’d highly recommend getting a custom tune by a reputable tuner for the best results
The R7 compound probably wouldn’t be well suited for AutoX as it needs some temp to perform its best. I’d say try a staggered setup like R5 and P3 rear. PMU CR is decent but the Paragon pads are much better. You can try centric blanks or see if Paragon can make you a set of blanks. Directional...
I can datalog some highway cruises / typical commute to see what IATs would be observed. I can also do some WOT pulls and log all sensors on the car. I have some HPDE days lined up as well and can do some head to head testing there.
I also recently got my car on the dyno and have some baseline...
If @MAPerformance is confident in their intake, they can send me one to test on the street. I’d be able to compare it to my logs with my previous HVI setup and my current Eventuri setup. The HVI and Eventuri are arguably the two best options currently available. I think most people would cross...
In terms of heat conduction
Aluminum: k - 200
SS 304: k - 14
Carbon Fiber epoxy composite: k - 5
ABS plastic: k - 0.21
So not nearly as bad as aluminum but SS304 IMO just adds unnecessary weight and heat when there are better materials available.
Holy heat soak Batman. That airbox is going to need a lot more than just some gold tape to prevent serious heat conduction. Some DEI tunnel shield might help.
You might want to post more specs other than “this is the BEST intake on the market”. Considering that a lot of independent testing has...
