The OEM Veloster N Intake system is pretty stout already but there is definitely room for improvement. We upped the air filter size to a 4 inch inlet using genuine AEM Dry-Flow filters. The silicone intake tube is just under 4 inches and flows significantly more than the stock, ribbed tube. The silicone is also very heat resistant to help keep intake air temperatures from getting too hot.
This intake is currently available in Red or Black silicone and it deletes the factory turbo bypass valve hose connection. Simply remove the hose for all the turbo noises! Because the factory air box is substituted for the open element filter, the bypass valve discharge noises will be VERY audible anyway. There are no side effects or problems with removing the bypass valve hose.
There is an optional heat shield for those who want extra heat protection. This shield is designed to direct incoming air from the factory air box inlet on the radiator support towards the filter.
Our system comes with the OEM vacuum connections. It is currently not available with the OEM bypass valve connection but that option will be coming in the future.
As you can see in the dyno graph, the intake starts to show it’s flow superiority around 4500 rpm at wide open throttle. There are consistent 8-11 wheel horsepower and 8-11 wheel torque gains to redline.
