Default Intake Systems.


Ok, now that the strut bars are starting to sort themselves out... Let's work on intakes too.

We'll only discuss the ones that are worth mentioning, if it didn't fit well in your Saturn, it probably won't do well in anyone else's either.

Hall Of Shame: Bomz.

Warm-Air/Short-Ram and Cold-Air Intakes: Pictures of it installed, where it was purchased from, and how much it cost.

Injen: Available from multiple websites, $150 to $175.
Need Pics.

AEM: Available from multiple websites, $150'ish. Thanks scottyr94.


Cold-Air DOHC, SOHC, Manual Transmission Only

AEM: Available from multiple websites, $260'ish. Thanks scottyr94.



CP: 0 To 60, $105'ish.

Thanks for the recognition, thanks for the sticky'ing too.

I'm in the same boat as you, but I've got my eye on a few different intakes, which is part of the reason for this thread.

I think I just found out what my next purchase will be...

*Edit*
WTF?! Check out Dr.Speeedy's other items for sale... He's got various Saturn intakes, DOHC and SOHC, 91-99 and 00-02, but all the prices are different! Looks like he's got a polished CAI for 00-02 DOHC's for $18.99 with $21.99 for shipping... Not for long though! :P

if i were you i'd make sure the 00-02 intakes are in fact cold air intakes, and not just short rams.

he may have never seen 00-02 engines, so he assumes that 2 pipes= CAI

i think that part of the price variation is due to color/finish, the other seeming to be the year:

91-99 DOHC/95-99 SOHC: $67-$75

00-02 DOHC: $40-$49

Yeah, I noticed the colored ones were going for $56'ish and up, plus the $22 for shipping.

The picture looks remotely correct for it to be a true CAI, especially for an 00+ DOHC with the vertical TB. If all else fails, I'll rig up some ducting to get fresh air into the bay. For $40, I could go either way and still not feel ripped off.

*Edit*
Well my Dr. Speeedy CAI should be here no later than Tuesday, I'll be sure to give my opinion on the install and how well it works/sounds.

*Edit2*
Shortly after I purchased the item (within 24 hours), the seller ("dr.speeedy") posted positive feedback for me. The following day, he emailed me a UPS tracking number for my item. So far, so good...

*Edit3*
Intake has arrived and been installed. See more here.

Link to a Dr. Speeedy CAI on eBay.

So that would be a good intake for my 98 DOHC SL2? (sorry for the long link)

Eclipse intake:








It sticks out a little, some people told me to cut it but I just took it off because it was winter and I didn't notice any gains anyways.
