Retain Short Ram Air Intake System by Takeda®. Improve your car's performance and enhance the appearance of your engine bay with the Takeda Retain Short Ram Air Intake System. This system will increase airflow to your engine with subsequent gains in horsepower and torque. And the intake tube comes in your choice of polished clear-coat or black anodized finish aluminum, so it will look great under your hood.

Takeda

Features:

  • Custom designed for each application
  • Increases airflow, for gains in horsepower and torque
  • Improves acceleration and throttle response
  • Easy to install, fits completely under the hood
  • Mandrel-bent aluminum tubing in polished clear-coat or anodized black finish
  • High flow, oil-free, conical 360 degree Pro DRY S air filter
  • Comes complete with everything needed for installation
  • Can be installed in 45 minutes or less
  • Backed by a 2-year limited warranty

The Retain Short Ram Air Intake System replaces your restrictive factory air intake system with a large, free flowing high performance Pro DRY S air filter and a mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube. This system will dramatically increase airflow compared to the stock system, with resulting gains in horsepower and torque. You'll get improved performance you can feel. And this system looks so great; you'll quickly get into the habit of popping the hood to show it off!

The improvement starts with the Pro DRY S air filter, which combines high airflow and filtration efficiency with the convenience of oil-free maintenance. It contains 2 layers of randomly porous synthetic fabric, which allows approximately twice the airflow when compared to a typical stock air filter. The increased airflow results in more horsepower and torque, better throttle response and more miles per gallon. But this improved airflow and performance hasn't been gained at the expense of engine protection: the Pro DRY S has an excellent 99.2% filtration efficiency rating. The pleats in the filter are evenly spaced for greater dust holding capacity and the tips are rounded for better airflow. They're also 30% deeper than comparable aftermarket air filters for longer service intervals and greater dust holding capacity.

A specially developed 3-angle velocity stack smoothes the airflow transition from the air filter to the mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube. Unlike factory air intake tubes that have sound baffles and make awkward bends, the Takeda intake tube is designed to give the engine less restrictive breathing, incorporating larger diameters and smooth bends. The end result is the maximum possible airflow velocity. The intake tube is available in anodized black or polished clear-coat finish to add style to your engine bay.

The Retain Short Ram Air Intake System comes with everything needed for installation, including all couplers, hardware, and detailed instructions. Some systems include a black powder coated heat shield, to help isolate the air filter from engine heat and allow it to take in cooler air. The Retain system fits completely under the hood, so installation can be completed in usually 45 minutes or less. This system is backed by a 2-year limited warranty.

TAKEDA® is a division of Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe) Inc. Headquartered in Corona, California, the company was launched in 2009 to specialize in the development, design and manufacture of performance products for sport compact cars. Today, Takeda is most well-known for its line of performance air intake systems. These systems are flow bench and dyno tested for optimal performance, and feature mandrel-bent aluminum intake tubes in polished or black finish.

Takeda Short Ram Air Intake. 2013 Accord
This was a great product to choose. Had to make the decision between this intake and other competitors. Had to go with this after a little bit of research. I ended up being more than satisfied with this product. Sounds amazing and looks great under the hood. After installation I could tell a difference in power and acceleration. I would recommend this product to anybody in search of a intake. One problem that I incountured was one of the hoses was too big for the stock hose clamps. Ended up finding a replacement clamp in the tool box and it worked just as well. Overall, looks, sound, and power is all there 100%

I Love It
I love this intake, you can feel the difference between 4-5K RPMs, took 3 weeks to get it, but it was worth the wait.

Waste Of Money
I purchased this intake for a 2013 Subaru Legacy. The intake itself didn't fit per installation instructions. It was about 3/4" short of my air box. I also had to extend my crankcase vent about 5 inches to reach. Intake sounds great, but had to put my factory intake back on after 5 days due to my check engine light coming on, definitely don't recommend this if this is the only modification being made.
