How does an intake increase performance?

CORSA intakes allow the engine to breathe at its highest capacity permitted by maximizing the air in-take and output of each revolution.

How will a CORSA Intake affect my vehicle's fuel economy?
CORSA intakes make it easier for the engine to breathe, which should result in improved mileage. Driving style has a far greater impact on gas mileage than an air intake.


Are emissions components affected with the installation of a CORSA Intake?

CORSA Intakes are designed to work in conjunction with all stock emissions components. Search your product for specific CARB/Emission status.

Will an oiled filter harm my MAF sensor?
Filters that receive an appropriate amount of oil will not harm your MAF sensor. When servicing the filter, it is important to use the oil very sparingly. More oil is not better and over oiling can cause problems.

Do CORSA intake filters come pre-oiled?

How is the carbon fiber air intake manufactured?
CORSA carbon fiber intakes are manufactured using techniques normally reserved for the aerospace industry. Multiple layers of resin impregnated carbon fabric and proprietary thermal-barrier composite is vacuum bagged and baked for 4 hours in a pressurized autoclave to yield thin, yet exceptionally strong parts. Once removed from the mold, parts then receive multiple coats of clear UV resistant urethane and are polished to a high luster finish.
