Default Ram air intake!

I guess it's Ram air... but it does have a neat heat shield!

$325 is a bit high though! D'OH! Oh well...

But if you want that rumble when you make a jack-rabbit start, or want to tease another car, enjoy the air intake. I have no report on whether it improves gas mileage yet.

Thumbs Up Re: Ram air intake!

Paul I read your comments on the intake, and was that installed in the Red Line or standard sky ? Did you install it your self and how long did it take you? Did you have to make any adjustments to anything after you installed the intake? Where can I buy this unit ? Looks GOOD...

Thanks for answering my questions... please send to : sega3@verizon.net

According to that picture, it's a non Red Line, with the 2.4L VVT Normally Aspirated engine.

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

I KNOW that won't work the Red Line. Installation shouldn't be too difficult. Just remove the factory tubing and airbox and it should bolt right in.
But it at the link I posted! lol

Wrench Re: Ram air intake!

HUmmmm! I have installed several of these but never seen that particular one before.We install a dual cold air intake.It must be that its an aftermarket brand that Saturn does not make.It is called Fugita.HUmmm, why the shield above the K/? filter?
