    B0A49FF9-A07B-4AA9-95C5-AFBACD1D89A6.jpeg It’ll fit. The engine bay and layout are the same. Only difference between 14-16 and 17+ is cosmetic.
    HPS makes a short ram intake available in several colors. I had the red at first, switched to an injen cold air and then switched back to a black HPS.
    For me, my car was sluggish with the cold air from a dead stop, but would take off like at jet at speeds above 60. The short ram gave me a little more power from take off but robbed my top end.
    Weapon R and AEM also make intakes for us.
    If you really want noticeable difference, install a MAFS by jetchip.com along with your choice of intakes.
    And if your serious about squeezing every hourse out, add a pedal commander!

    I had the Injen cold air intake for my Kia forte and I honestly likes the way it sounded, handled, and looked in the engine bay but I might now consider the HPS intake thanks bro

    HPS pipe, K&N filter, Jetchip MAFS and the hydroshield off the injen CAI.
    You like?
    Only took like $800 bucks to achieve this look!!

    Even if you by an Ingen intake the piping is pretty much the same isn't it

    Nope. The injen pipe turns the other direction, towards the battery. Plus there’s a mounting bracket that isn’t shown in pictures.

    I ment as in the pipe doesn't make a big difference what brand it is performance wise

    OK, so I have a question for all you RollAddicts out there
    What in the world is that grey inner filter doing or does on the OEM filter box ?
    don't get it !

    Thanks

    Ignore it,
    If the injen filter on hps pipe does its job,
    Let it be !

    Where at? I’ve never noticed.

    Oh, I gotcha!
    The injen CAI has a small pipe inside that bypasses the MAFS, the HPS SRI does not have this pipe. So there is a slight difference between them. What the extra pipe does is not my forte. Must have something to do with keeping the MAFS happy.

    OK, so if you pop open the air filter box there is the withe Air filter, but if you look under the Air filter lid there is a
    secondary air filter and its color its gray, why two air filters ?!
    LOL

    Ohhhhh you’re talking about the charcoal part of it built into the top cover. I have no idea what that’s for but I’m about to google it!

    So for the cabin, it would be used to filter out oders, pollen, dust particles and other small particulate airborne items. I’m guessing that those things shouldn’t be in the engine either.

    I read this on a web >

    I took out that charcoal pad thats in the upper air box, but i kept OEM filter though, no gains however, but intake noise increased slightly more throaty noise . Its OP's choice ppl don't be flamming him for using something that you may think its "snake oil" im not a fan of K&N products but it makes OP happy then so be it.

    LOL >>

    These two graphs speak volumes. If you logically think about K&N's premise: increase Horse Power by increasing air flow. The less restrictive the air filter, the greater the air flow. Unfortunately, more debris will be passing through the air filter (as shown above), into the intake manifold, then into the cylinders. Even if no cars are ever damaged running K&N air filters, is the cost of the filter, filter oil, filter cleaner, and required maintenance of these filters require, worth K&N's claim of 1-4 Horse Power increase?

    Most of us are probably changing the air filter prematurely. An interesting report by the EPA on clogged air filters and the impact on MPG, concluded:
    "Closed-loop control in modern fuel injected vehicle applications is sophisticated enough to keep a clogged air filter from affecting the vehicle fuel economy."LINKto the EPA study (2-2009).

    The factory engine is a balanced system (a compromise of performance, reliability, and efficiency). Air filter all the way to the exhaust, don't forget the programming. Add a K&N filter, the system is unbalanced. To maximize the potential, additional air flow increase K&N can offer, one would have to change out many other parts; exhaust system for sure, as the stock exhaust is very restrictive compared to a "performance/racing" exhaust systems.

    Formula 1, Nascar, and Rally cars, are probably using K&N or something comparable. But those aren't normal everyday engines. Those bad boys are built from the ground up around performance, and cost a pretty penny. Penny is an understatement. I was off by many factors, when I searched "cost of formula 1 engine." 2014 F1 engine: average price $7.7MILLION (I'm assuming USD, as no currency unit is stated). LINK

    You are driving a Prius. Not a sexy car, nor a fast car. But sexy MPG.

    FYI

    Read the following link in its entirety (its not long).
    Its an objective test performed on nine air filters, one being a K&N.
    http://www.nicoclub.com/archives/kn-vs-oem-filter.html
    "However, if a filter is using “better airflow” as their marketing tool, remember this….Does it flow better? At very high airflow volumes, probably. BUT, our engines CAN’T flow that much air unless super-modified, so what is the point? The stock filter will flow MORE THAN ENOUGH AIR to give you ALL THE HORSEPOWER the engine has to give. And this remains true until the filter is dirty enough to be recognizeable. At that point performance will decline somewhat. Replace the filter and get on with it."

    Interesting.
    I was always taught that if you increase the airflow, you have to increase the exhaust as well.

    I read it, and thought I share this w ALL the RollAddicts out there, very interesting !
    I removed the carbon filter from my OEM box, and it does makes noise, not sure why,
    but I can tell you, it does flow more air into it w out the Carbon filter !

    Throttle body can only take so much, unless you're pushing air into it !
