Just because the Injen SP Series Short Ram is a traditional "underhood" system, don't think it's any less of a performance air intake system. The SP Series Short Ram is a product of the same rigorous development and testing as Injen's other air intake systems. It's made of the same quality materials and features the same high flow EA Nanofiber dry air filter. The air intake tube is made of 6061, T-6 aluminum alloy, for strength, light weight and smooth airflow. All connections are made with quality silicone connectors that provide flexibility, while maintaining strength and thermal stability. The stainless steel hose clamps provide a solid seal that won’t loosen or deteriorate. The end result is a quality system that will improve performance and look great under the hood.
Where the SP Series Short Ram differs from conventional short ram systems is the inclusion of Injen's patented MR (Mega Ram) Technology. MR Technology allows this system to attain increased intake airflow and performance while maintaining a safe air/fuel ratio. Injen steps down the diameter of the intake tube where the Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor mounts, enabling the sensor to detect airflow within established parameters. The engine control computer can then maintain the proper air/fuel ratio and optimize horsepower and torque. Simply put, MR Technology tunes the intake system to avoid the necessity of recalibrating the MAF sensor, and prevents your engine from running too lean or too rich. With MR Technology, Injen created "The World's First Tuned Intake System", delivering optimum performance with a factory safe air/fuel ratio.
The SP Short Ram system installs in place of your factory airbox and air intake tube. It's carefully engineered, with CNC machined brackets and adapters, to ensure an exact fit. Installation is fast and simple and can be completed under the hood. There's no need to get underneath the car or do any significant component relocating. Everything necessary for installation is supplied, including comprehensive instructions. The SP Series Short Ram Air Intake System is backed by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.277.40

This Injen air intake is way cool, easy to install, delivered quickly, and looks very nice in metallic black. Instructions are easy, just make sure engine is totally cool. The built-in blow-off valve (BOV) on the KIA Optima SX makes a very cool sound every time you ask for more power. I am very pleased.Was this review helpful for you?

This item was exactly as expected and more. Although the installation was a bit difficult, it was well worth it. It looks great and sounds great. I would highly recommend the intake to boost your HP and the sound of the turbo. Shipping was fast as well.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

This intake system was a little harder to put in than any I had done in the past because of the location of the Turbo outlet, however, it was really worth the effort. If you own a Kia Optima and love the performance, you will not be disappointed in the performance gain with this product. And it sounds awesome as well.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

I have been adding bolt-on's to vehicles for many years, and this was by far the smoothest and best-fitting intake system I have installed yet. The instructions were very easy to read and follow, and the fitment of the product is perfect. The sound that this intake makes is great under load when the boost is up, and the performance gains are clear and impressive. Great product for any type of owner!5 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
