  • [NB] Cold Air Intake

    Has anybody try this product?

    WTF - the description says that the cool air box reduces intake temperatures to the turbo, but the picture shows a naturally aspirated car (which the product appears to be for). I don't think BEGi is winning any awards for their website.

    That said, I'm sure this works a lot like other cold air intakes - a little throatier engine sound, a few horsepower, etc. If it was my money though, I'd save that $319 and start piecing together a turbo kit.


    The Cool Air Box completely isolates the Air Filter to reduce intake temperatures to the turbo. The Cool Air Intake comes with throttle inlet tube, air filter, turbo hose, hose clamps and mounting hardware.

      Yeah, kinda expensive and it's just the same box they use in their turbo kits with a custom intake pipe. I dunno. Begi seems to use some heavy stuff, and I'd be willing to bet that stuff weighs a good bit more than the stock stuff.

        Interesting.... but about $100 too much.

          Piece together turbo or just fab your own. $319 is pricey especially with the sketchy description.

            $319 for a fancy piece of pipe? No way...

              my cold air box is pretty light i will say not sure how it adds up with stock stuff might have to give it a weigh one day. but even the big pipes they use are farely light

                  Which kit did you got? Entry kit or the Stage 2 kit?

                      the best intake kit for the NB is the one on Nick's NB. they dont make that anymore or it is too damn expensive. I have the DDM too in my car now.

                        In my eyes, that looks to be worth $75 plus a filter.

                              I just want to know if anybody have used Weapon R Secret Weapon Intake in their NB Miata. Cuz I want to know where will the air filter sit in the engine bay [near towards the headers or near towards the headlight]
