I was just wondering if anyone has found and intake system for the 2.0T yet? It just seems strange to me that the car has been out for 6 months and nobody has a production intake available for it yet.

wow... well I just tried to call one of the Premium vendors from this site trying to get the info they promised weeks ago and the only respose I got was "YEAH YEAH I OWE YOU DAMN EMAIL, I'LL GET TO IT" I guess people in AZ have different people skills then elsewhere...

Seems like KPE, D3, and Pfadt are all working on a CAI. Too me it's worth it only if it adds HP.

It doesn't seem like anything has been developed aftermarket yet. I suppose 6 months may be too soon, but man if this were a Honda we'd have strobes and lift kits by now...or maybe a suede V-style shift knob?

well you named the company I was refering to...

And don't get me started on the suede shift knob, its still listed as a "future part"

CAI add marginal HP without a tune. But they do make the engine sound beastly under W.O.T!

Pfadt's CAI they have coming out looks pretty promising. It looks to be that they are doing a lot of product development for the ATS and updating us on the forums when they can.

Full cai with a heat shield would be way better than just a tube upgrade I think...

ZZP is working on a finished product. It will use the stock intake box. My guess is for ram air

Basically another tube upgrade? What other possibility is there?

Fwiw, the stock air box is a pretty good design, if it's not a restriction, there's no point in adding the cost and complexity of a new setup, when cleaning up the airflow with a good tube upgrade will accomplish almost the same thing.

Not that its much of a surprise, but the ATS and CTS share the same air boxes for the 2.0T and the 3.6 engines. Since the Vsport gets a slightly more open box bottom (and different filter apparently), I may look into trying to find one and seeing if I can swap it in for a little more breathing
