Air intake crap - Kamotors Performance Carbon Fiber Filter 3" Cold Air Intake BMW VW

This is a FYI about one of the forum members Kamotors. If you need a 2.75" intake, his product is great. If you wanted a 3" intake - stay away.

Any way, I found an enclosed filter housing on e-bay. Neat idea, Lets me grab cool air from the stock snorkel location.

I order it, pay the $83 and hefalse advertised it. He labels it as a 3" intake but in reality, it is only a 2.75" intake.

the intake on the 2UZ is 3". Will it be restrictive, I don't know. I am bitter about the whole situation. I asked for a refund. He declined. I am now flaming this re****. Basically just a public service announcement to let prospective buyers, who do internet searches, not to buy from KaKa Motors.

Here is his ebay listing

Selling Kamotors' Universal Ver.4 Carbon Fiber cold air intake. 100% real carbon fiber. This is the New Ver. 4 kit with rubber strap. This Filter replaces the factory airbox and bolts directly to the MAF or AFM(for AFM cars an ebay MAF adapter is needed).This kit gets a larger volume of air and will outperform just about any other setup on the market. The filter is enclosed in a 9" by 5" carbon fiber heat shield canister. I have personally installed this kit in BMW's, Datsun 280z, zx, Jeep, and VW Jetta. If you engine bay has about 9.5" 5.5" inches this Filter can be installed installed in about 30minutes.

Picture Number 2 shows the New strap design( It will Have The Kamotors logo on the body). Picture 1 shows the complete version 4 BMW kit.
Remember this is NOT an auction for a bolt on kit, hoses,clamps or couplers may be need to install this kit on your vehicle.

Keeps intake temps 50+degrees cooler than an unshielded cone filter setup and more than 15 degrees cooler than the OEM airbox setup. This kit will fit everything from BMW's, VW, Subaru, Audi, Nissan, Datsun and much more. I've used this Filter in many different cars with great results. Filter uses a 3" inlet and outlet which means that it wont be a restriction, similar kits on ebay only use 2.5" inlets which will restrict performance, don't be fooled by cheap imitations, they use a lower quality filters and will not perform as well.

This Auction is for the canister, assorted couplers, and bracket. Please check other auctions for Full kit for the BMW E30.

Kit includes

1-100% Carbon Fiber canister w/ enclosed air filter 3" inlet outlet stubs
The filter uses a pointed cone tip to help straighten turbulent air.

3- assorted coupler, which you may or may not need.

1-New Ver.4 rubber lip metal filter bracket

1-Straight bracket

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

With this Filter you can have a true Cold Air Intake. Usually when people want to get a cold air setup they end up removing there high beam or cutting a hole in the car to get air from below, but with this kit you can easily redirect air from the grill or valance into the filter. The cooler the air, the more power. If you are just using a cone filter you are actually losing power because of the hot engine bay air your filter is breathing.

A heat shield blocks the hot air but you aren't really getting cooler outside air to your filter unless you have this CAI setup. The canister has a 3" inlet which lets you direct out side air into your filter, with this kit your filter won't reach temps above the outside air temp.

The filter is completely enclosed in a Carbon Fiber shield. Since no separate shield is needed or would be a benefit, installing the kit is a breeze and you get much more freedom on deciding how you want it mounted.

This kit will give a performance gain and a very unique sound that's only possible with a carbon fiber enclosed filter. Gives better throttle response, MPG(if driven normal), power, and cooler Intake air temps.

Do not install the bracket to any ground points on the vehicle.

Customer reviews

"the first thing I noticed was better throttle response with the CAI"

"I can vouch for this product."

"High quality on the products I obtained. I was very pleased. Thanks to you!"

"I have one of these CAIs and it is great!
I feel a little bit of added acceleration in 3rd and 4th.
awesome product!"

"Just posting to let anyone on the fence about getting one of these know that they will not be disappointed. A perfect compliment to the miller maf conversion."

"Recieved mine from KA Motors. Let me tell you... I'm super happy. It's a very clean install and clean product. Looks FANTASTIC on just about any application. Very well worth it "

"intake is cool to the touch on my M42 with this thing installed, thanks for a quality product "

"Good seller, good product, great price, quick shipping. What else can you ask for?"

"I bought a KA Motors carbon intake for my E30 318iS and love it.

I removed the muffler thing on the end of it though and just have the pipe feeding into it without the 3 inch cover thing on the end, sounds a LOT better this way!"

No where in his listing does it say 3.25".

Edited for NSFW launguage. I know you're frustrated, but keep it clean.

Sorry for your luck but if I'm looking for an intake, I don't even look at things that look like a dryer vent tube with a filter
