    Think ECS needs to update their product info- Leyo's website states that it won't fit the new 2.5

    It won't fit.

    But in saying that Leyo is very close to releasing their FL intake kit.

    Leyo motorsports make quality products

    Nice looking piece. I wonder if it will make meaningful power gains?

    Those screen caps imply they're copying their part? I'm confused :).

    Non-carbon fiber options are always welcomed. I don't see the point spending so much on a CF unit. In the end it's just a pipe, filter and air box. Money better spent on upgrading the intercooler. :)

    Yes, if you go through some of the recent posts on the CTS Instagram, you can see that Leyo was buying their parts and then coming out with parts just like those with Leyo branding.

    Personally ill keep my money on Canadian soil, but that's my opinion. Quality looks good from the pics, but given the chance ill support my canadian bacon up here all day. Plus CTS arrives at my door a day after i order from them.

    I believe that's the PFL that its installed also a 2.5l.

    You can buy an intake sock to help with debris, that's what ill be doing. I've ran socks before with good experience.

    I can’t believe its been almost a year and the top brand companies don’t have an intake, down pipe, or stage 2 tune. Like this is some NASA built car.

    I would say it's pretty normal in the industry. One existing IC manufacturer sent a few to another well known player and magically that well known player is showing pics of their upcoming IC. I don't know how ethical this is but i do know that it's done all over the automotive industry if not most manufacturing industries.

    I would assume it is, its really competitive research. I have a feeling with the IC you are talking about Iroz and APR, but besides that, I know it happens. Happens in all aspects of business.

    Meh I'm no fan of APR but they didn't RIP off iroz's intercooler design.

    A front mount intercooler is a front mount it flows x and cools y

    They might use the same cores but there are only so many standard core sizes you can buy so people will overlap given the space limitations.

    Leyo Motorsports?

    The design from the previous 2.5 to this one shouldn’t be that drastic for an intake. But w/e. Eventuri released their intake so it can’t be that hard for the better known tuners. Never waited this long for an intake on any other platform but ok “I’ll calm my titties”. Or “keep my panties on”.

    I actually bought it based on the websites fitment guide. Was rather unhappy when the intake tube was no where near the right placement nor angle. They actually appear to have re-done the actual engine side intake to throttle body connection, so the throttle body sits at a different angle than before.

    Ah screw it, just cutting a hole through my hood above the turbo, and going inverse chu chu train style.

    Good things come to those who wait, AWE soon to release.

    However, I may pull off my DP and order the most expensive, least restrictive and most emission friendly HJS cat in place.
