AFE GT Momentum Unboxing and Initial Thoughts

I was really sold on this intake since the first photos of it appeared on this forum not so long ago. In my opinion, this is by far the nicest one I have seen, ever :-) Getting it seemed impossible. As AFE Power has contract to supply this part to Hyundai Motors Korea only, it is not possible to purchase outside of South Korea. The fact that stock is limited and only Korean credit cards are accepted very much rule out remote purchase.

The intake, p/n: M6281-AB000 fits following vehicles:
- Elantra Sport GT N-Line / i30
- Veloster JS
- Avante Sport / Elantra Sport
- Kia Forte K3 GT

The intake is available via TUIX mall: ????? and via TUON mall (for Kia) ???? Some info (older) on what is TUIX and TUON: https://thekoreancarblog.com/2014/05...e-parts-shopl/
You will need local person to make a purchase for you.

The box arrived today, I have asked to have it repacked into a smaller box to save a little in shipping and to prevent 'curious eyes' from checking the rather attractive box. The kit consists of:
- installation manual (in English and Korean - well written)
- air filter enclosure
- air filter element Pro-Guard7 oiled air filter — maximum protection https://afepower.com/air-filter-media
- the intake pipe
- silicone coupler
- fittings/clamps
- AFE licence plate + stickers
- Air filter cleaning/re-oiling kit p/n: 90-50500


The build quality is fantastic. Nice mould, good finish. Nothing really to pick about. Maybe the lack of perhaps a stainless or aluminium frame around the window, but this is just me.. The window itself is great, allows to see if the filter needs cleaning or not just yet...

The installation manual is very detailed, it would be hard to do something wrong - well done!

I will go ahead with the installation this coming weekend. We still have snow in the forecast for the next couple of days and I am still on my winter tires - warm weather is to start on Thursday - I think that is when I will swap the wheels. I would like to drive the car on 18s for a day at least to get a feeling of before-and-after.

To be continued....

Looks very well made. I love that it is totally encapsulated. I hate intakes with the sheild that "seals" against the hood. Underhood heat can easily leak into the filter area.

What you need is a sealed box that connects to the factory snorkel hole on the radiator support (such as this one or SXTH's new box coming soon), and follow that up with a Velossa Tech big mouth intake tube. After a 30 mile highway drive with temps in the 50's and the big mouth tube on my car, I popped the hood when I got home and the stock intake box and tube (I'm waiting for the SXTH box to come out) were cold to the touch.

i completely agree. The only thing im wondering is, will the dimensions of the factory snorkel (without the big mouth) be a bottleneck and not allow the intake to make any more power than a stock box and high flow panel filter?

With both this AFE intake and the SXTH box, the stock snorkel is removed.

I know that. But the inlet to both mentioned intakes is restrained to the factory dimensions at the core support. Im wondering if this is a bottleneck or if these intakes still show roughly the same power gains as the others, but with the obvious added benefits.
