My filters and elbows showed up so I got to work installing everything. It's a pretty easy project, to remove the stock air boxes it's unlatch 4 clips per box, remove two bolts for each strut bar, and remove 3 bolts at the bottom of each airbox. I used some stick on weatherstripping under the strut bars and on top of the elbow just to hold everything in place.

I've only gone for a short drive so far to ensure everything was working properly. The sound change is subtle in my opinion, just a bit more induction noise from the intakes, and the blowoff valve is more audible now as well. I'm not sure if the car felt any faster so far, but I was more after the sound improvement and better airflow for when I do get myself a JB4.

^Looks good! Now if you can figure out a way to expand the heat shield to completely block the filters from the heat of the engine bay. Even so, as it is I bet it's just as good as some of the aftermarket intakes available right now, at like 1/3 the price!

Did you have to trim the heat shields at all?

I picked up my filters today. Elbows don’t arrive until Friday. If I do the heat shields, figure I need some good reflective material from DEI over the back side so they don’t heat soak.

I did purchase a pack of reflective material but I didn't have enough to do both shields.
What material did you find/purchase? What is the exterior height and length dimension so I'd know what size sheet of reflective material to get?

The reflect-a-gold would be the #1 reflective barrier, and the reflect-a-cool would be the #2 reflective barrier product offered by DEI.

Reflect-A-GOLD™ - Heat Reflective Sheet

Reflect-A-Cool™ - Heat Reflective Sheets


Also, I didn't realize this, but Spectre Performance is a division of K&N Engineering. So, these are basically K&N Filters from what I can gather.

I ordered this stuff:


I should have paid better attention to how much it came with, it's only 12x12 inches in size, I thought the picture made it look like a roll of this material, but it was just one piece.

I'll see if I can get you measurements of the heat shields at some point.

I purchased the Reflect-a-gold, got a 24” x 12” sheet. My elbows didn’t show up yet, so that weekend plan is delayed...

Reflect-a-gold seems like it would be effective, but holy hell that stuff is garish looking. I'm worried if I put that in my engine bay it would be like a gateway to gold, next thing you know I would be getting gold teeth installed. :ROFLMAO:

Yeah, I felt the same. But figured intake temps were more important. Reflect-a-cool is the next best stuff. But they said the gold reflects around 17% more.

So about to pull the trigger on an intake - debating between;

69-5318TS K&N Performance Air Intake System

And

BMS Kia Stinger / Genesis G70 Performance Dual Intake, Dual Performance Filters, and Mounting Hardware

Both look pretty similar, except the BMS appears to use the lower portion of the OEM air filter housing, while the K&N doesn’t. Would one be better than the other in terms of getting cooler air into the turbos?

Get the K&N kit. Without a doubt a much better setup than the BMS version. Lighter weight, filters are closer to the headlights, and a much more effective heat shield. The k&n housing also has a cutout for the OEM snorkel. It will bring in cooler temps than the BMS intake.

Thanks, I was partial to K&N anyway having used their drop-in filters in the past.

Have you seen the engine bay of the MacLaren F1 Road Car?
It's all bling!

So, I installed the Build-Your-Own Intakes today. I have to say, I'm super impressed. I did mine slightly differently, but others on the Stinger forum have done the same with great results. After this install, I went for a quick drive and saw no error codes or other abnormal behavior. You could definitely hear the air induction better and for the first time, I actually heard the blow off valves in operation. That was kinda underwhelming. The stock BOV sounds like a cat farting. But at least I can hear it now.

For this install, you leave in the bottom half of the stock Intake box. This provides stability for the filters and act as heat shields from the engine. The stock snorkels are intact, providing some cool air from the outside, but my biggest concern with this setup is how much hot engine bay air I will pull in. You can't see it in the pics, but there is a large amount of space between the filters and the bottom of the lower airbox. The snorkels open into this area, so the underside of the filters will get unrestricted access to the cool outside air. I'm hoping this will help offset the top of the filters getting hot engine bay air.

It looks and sounds great, and was super easy to install. Simply:
1) Remove the brace bars
2) Pop the top half of the airbox off using the 4 clips.
3) Unscrew the clamp holding the hose to that top half of the airbox.
4) Remove the top half of the airbox and the stock filter.
5) Position and insert the new filter 90 elbow into the stock airbox hose and re-tighten the clamp.
6) No extra bracing, tape or anything else needed. It all fits snugly, doesn't wiggle, and is held in place by the cross brace bar.
7) Enjoy.

The filters and elbows cost about $95cad.

As an interesting side note, this install looks very much like the BMS install seen on page 1 of this thread.

Here's some pics:
