RX-8 Short Ram Intake

The Takeda Retain Short Ram air intake for '04-08 Mazda RX-8s replaces the bulky and inefficient factory intake by increasing air volume and improving air velocity for increased horsepower, torque and improved throttle response. It utilizes a specially designed wrinkle black finish intake housing with a huge oval-shaped filter for maximum airflow. Takeda air intakes use the brand-new Pro Dry S filter from aFe, which uses a progressive synthetic media, requiring no oil to recharge for maximum convenience and filtration.
