  1. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    Just curious if anyone has installed a intake or a K&N intake on their non-turbo 2.0 soul. If so, I have a 17 and wanted to see how much smoother it was using a intake on these cars as well as if you needed a tune as well.
  2. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 2)
    As since they've been on the market I've run K&N filters in every vehicle I have owned , I was wondering if anyones using the K&N Typhoon intake on their 2.0 ? And if the benifits outweigh just a drop in K&N filter ? Their published midrange torque improvements may be just what I need for...

    I was wondering who has one and are you happy with it, any mpg improvements? thanks Old Soul Man

    Built my own intake tonight. Its still a work in progress..Needs to be painted and add weather stripping around the edges to keep heat away from the intake. Anyways tell me what y'all think! ill add more picture tomorrow of it installed in the soul. Maybe i can throw in a video also :)

    Instead of spending $200+ on a CAI, I'm going to just buy a performance drop-in filter. Can't decide between the K&N or AEM. The K&N is an oiled type filter and the AEM is a dry type filter. I am not worried about longevity, as they are gonna last years and years anyways. Both are about the same...

    Has anyone ever installed a K&N Air Intake/Filter system on their Soul? I'm curious as to what kind of MPG increase if any would come out of installing one.

    Hey I'm new here and just bought a 2011 soul ! in Java. I was wondering what your thoughts were on the AEM vs the K&N intakes? Does anybody have these?

    Let me begin with a little preface: I've used the K&N drop in air filters in most of my cars for probably close to 20 years. Mostly out of cost saving vs. disposable filters. If I didn't see a mpg gain it at least stayed the same. I record every tank so I have good records for comparison. So now...

    Im wondering if anyone has put a K&N air filter in there soul. I was at the autoparts store today and was playing with the K&N display they had, where you can swap out filters and see the ping pong ball represent the airflow. Got me thinking about getting one. I use a K&N air filter in my...

    PM made for: Headers & Axle Back Exhaust today and spoke with Steven...Thanks for your help Steven. Will be using the K&N drop in for air as the Cold Air intakes are overkill for the car (too much turbulence). This is a superb daily commuter and trip Hamster mobile.... Other Vehicles: 2007...

    Its been a little over a year since we started a discussion about aftermarket mufflers. Now the aftermarket has responded favorably for the Soul. Very good for us. Its nice to have a choice. I wanted to share my setup with the forum. I shall post interior sound volumes soon. And I have not...

    Well with calculated intent and loads of research I went with the Company that I had 20+ years of history with. The install is straight forward and takes about 45 minuets and 1.5 beers if your old and slow like me. Fit and finish are good not excellent and I would have liked to see the air...

    Looks like K&N now offers a Typhoon intake for the 2.0 Soul. It's part number 69-5306TS Looks like the MSRP is about $322! Anybody ever use these on other vehicles? For the Soul they are claiming a shade over 5HP gained and 5 foot pounds gained. I like the look and I like the idea. Not (yet?)...

    Just wondering where Canadians who got the K&N filter got it from. Tried my local CT and they can't get them or special order them. Maybe a fellow Soul owner in the US could pick me up 2 and send USPS and I'll pay you??:D

    Any Ontario Soul owners with a K&N filter and where did you get it? Thanks
  18. Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    So added the K&N Cone. Fell off a couple times so I know now why they use the solid pipe. This material is tricky to work with. You almost have tohave a little bit of a mount just to hold it in place with a firm not too tight grip @ the base of the cone where the rubber is. Was tricky but I...
