Made of anodized aluminum, the Takeda Retain from aFe is a short-ram air intake that replaces your vehicle's stock intake system. The mandrel-bent intake tube and Pro Dry S air filter help to optimize airflow, boosting horsepower and torque.
The Takeda line from aFe features this custom-fit air intake system that is designed to replace your vehicle's factory intake tube and air filter. This Takeda Retain is a short-ram intake that draws air from the factory filter location. The included Pro Dry S performance air filter blocks 99.2 percent of dirt and debris without compromising airflow. And the mandrel-bent, anodized aluminum intake tube replaces your restrictive factory tubing to optimize both air volume and velocity. Stainless steel installation hardware is included.
A. This Takeda Retain short-ram intake has a black housing that helps to block out heat so that the intake ingests cooler air. This helps to lower your engine's operating temperature and improve its performance.
B. Constructed of lightweight, anodized aluminum with a clear finish, this short-ram air intake won't weigh your vehicle down, yet it will withstand high engine temperatures and corrosion. The anodizing process thickens the oxide layer on the surface of the aluminum, creating a stronger metal. A special seal increases resistance to wear.
C. The three-angle adapter ring bridges the connection between the air filter and the intake tube. Its conical shape helps to increase airflow velocity before air enters the intake tube.
D. The aFe intake tube replaces the stock intake tube, and its mandrel-bent design decreases back pressure. It also includes a precision-tuned mass airflow (MAF) sensor pad to prevent false "check engine" warning lights. All aFe intake tubes have raised stops that help to form strong connections and prevent slippage.
E. This intake system contains an aFe Pro Dry S air filter for a great balance of protection, performance and convenience. Designed for sport compact cars, it performs well in paved-road and semi-dusty driving conditions. Composed of 100-percent polyurethane on all sides, the filter withstands high engine temperatures. Two layers of randomly porous, synthetic fabric lie between two layers of progressively finer, medical-grade cotton gauze to block 99.2 percent of dirt and grime from clogging your engine. All four layers are dry and oil free, making it easy to service the filter. These materials yield a high-performance airflow and will extend your vehicle's service intervals. All aFe air filters are washable and reusable. Cleaning is recommended once every 25,000 to 30,000 miles.
Each aFe air intake undergoes extensive dyno and bench testing to measure airflow and maximize gains, which are represented in performance charts that highlight the airflow benefits of aFe models when compared with stock models. As demonstrated by this performance chart, this Takeda Retain vehicle air intake offers airflow gains of up to 41 CFM when compared with the stock system.
This intake also offers increased horsepower (by as much as 6 horsepower) and torque (by as much as 7 foot-pounds) compared with the stock system.
