      do88 Air Box

      Just received the new do88 intake system from Viva. Thought I would post some pictures before I get to the install.

      It looks like a vacuum cleaner attachment, I’m sure it will look much better installed! So it just replaced the stock air box, what’s the diameter of the tubing ?

      Honestly, that looks cheap - do88 makes some great intercoolers, so I'm surprised they put their name on this. Very homemade, imo.

      I'll probably paint or hydrodip the plastics to go along with the colors in my engine bay. I'll get back to you on the tubing diameter, currently stuck at work.

      Isn't the prettiest but the numbers looks promising.

      I'm seeing a foam filter element, is it tacky (pre-oiled)? These can be better than oiled gauze but do have to be oiled as well.

      I'll get back to you on that. Didn't have time to take the airbox apart today.

      I saw that they started making this! Really curious if it proves better than stock

      So one hose uses the stock snorkel, i wonder where the other one runs to. That price is harsh but i guess it does include the ECM mount right? please dont tell me that was separate lol

      Bout the same price as an injen intake kit, which needs to be modified for auto trans and also has an open filter. The do88 unit did include the ECU mount.

      Cracked open the air box today. Filter is oiled, in the inside of the plastic housing is nice and smooth. Different finish than the outside.

      Filter dimensions are 15 5/8" x 5 7/8". If I can find a metric ruler I'll post the true dimensions.

      Wondering how well it'll filter. Looks thick and high-PPI. Kind of cool that you can buy bulk foam and cut/glue yourself a new panel filter if you needed.
      I like the airbox design, looks believably OEM-ish while (probably) way easier to remove. Wish it was cheaper, I'd consider it for my 2.4i that's on a very not-stock looking inline airbox right now.

      Does do88 offer replacement filters? What do you do when one wears out?

      Not 100% sure yet. My plan is to find what other filters fit, should be pretty simple.

      Keep the information coming! Super interested on whether or not this part is worthwhile. Heck, it might be worth it purely for the ease of maintenance if it fits in and out without unbolting the engine mount.
