Did you notice any increase in power with the Injen Cold Air Intake? My butt dyno tells me that my car pulls better when it is cold outside so it got me thinking about trying an cold air intake. Could be that the AC is turned off when it gets cold and it is that what's makes the difference. Don't know if the ac compressor is turned of when it's cold though.

I noticed that on hot Summer days power was noticeably down, so I made my own cold air intake using a hose from Demon Tweaks so the engine now takes its intake directly from the front of the car instead of under the bonnet near the exhaust where the air is warmer (and hence less dense).

My butt dyno says it made a noticeable difference.

I'll guess i will have try this out next spring then, also having plans replacing the rear muffler with a straight through bike slip on muffler, i don't think i will gain any hp but the sound should be different at least.

Yep, I did something similar, the inside front bumper has sort of funnel/scoop to push cold air up to main filter intake, OK it a cheap car so needs must, but like Dave, I got some cold air feed ducting to better direct the cold air. I hadn't noticed any 'heat soak' as such, but thought it worth doing.
