Alta intake connected to alta turbo inlet hose review

MY GOODNESS ALTA MADE A PHENOMENAL INTAKE PEOPLE! FROM MID TO TOP END THERE IS POWER GAIN AND TORQUE. PLUS THE SOUND IT MAKES JEEZUS CHRYSLER! 😎😉 THE TURBO IS LOUDER TO BOOT. ONLY COMPLAINTS IS YOU HAVE TO WIGGLE IT TOGETHER FOR IT TO FIT RIGHT. I RECOMMEND IT!

Looks nice. How is the fitment on the ICI pipe?

Great the only thing I dont like is... it dont come with couplers so you have to reuse factory plastic ones but a very functional pipe. I say it is the best on the market but to pricey

Man I wanted that set up too, but that inlet pipe only seems to fit the older N14 cars and is NOT for 2013 N18's :-(

I think the Alta turbo inlet could be used on an N18 motor, but it would take some fiddling - not too dissimilar to the full intake from NM Engineering for the N18s.

Fitment on ici pipe is great... you will have to removed the resonator hose

The alta inlet pipe is a must have... big horsepower gains from mid to top end.
