I am interested in buying a cold air kit from steeda. Has anyone bought one of these? Wondering if it sounds good? Also if you can feed a difference on acceleration?

I have 1, with the magnaflow and that sct tune it screams (in the upper rpms) like vtec in a honda. Sounds pretty damn good.

could you upload an audio file? Not a big fan of magnaflow systems and the way they sound (or the cost) but this air intake not only adds 12hp but will modify the sound of the fusion? My car is stock except for KN filter which I don't believe has changed the sound or anything much at all. Would this void the warranty at all? I'm told my KN won't so thats good. I'll probably have to wait till my KN needs re oiling at which time I will claim I need one of these instead :)

They have to prove the intake caused the problem, if you are worried about it then put your stock stuff back in before you have it tow'd or drive it to the dealership.

Back to the sound. Did you remove your air resonator tube? You should have heard a difference when you did that. The steeda intake you can here sucking air in really well. I don't have anything that would allow me to record an audio clip, other than my cell phone and that wouldn't even be worth it. Trust me it's a nice system. Others on here have audio clips, try searching.

Will i need a tune if i only install the intake? I don't want to ruin my engine and i also don't want to spend more for a tune. Could this intake eventually ruin something down the road in my engine

Yeah you can install just the intake but you won't get as big a boost, 12hp with just intake, add the tun and you can hit 30hp. It won't necessarily cause you trouble but add ons like this tend to be less restrictive thats how they increase performance so more stuff gets through into the engine.

You'll be fine with the intake only. I'd put big money on it.

I can record a sound clip for you if you would like. But our development Fusion also has a Magnaflow Catback.

Let me know if you are interested. ;)

I finally got my cold air intake. It sounds awesome on my V6. Sounds like i got a new exhaust. It also adds a nice bit of power. Highly recommended
