The SXTH Element Engineering Carbon Intake is a total package of performance and OEM fit/finish.

As air enters the engine bay, our high flow / dry flow filter with integrated velocity stack feeds air through a 3.75in carbon fiber tube to the turbo. Horsepower and torque gains range from 8-11 across the rev range. With this intake, the factory bypass valve hose connection is no longer used. In doing so, you get those sweet blow off valve turbo noises with ZERO side effects!

Our intake pipe is constructed from 3K twill 100% carbon fiber and finished with a gloss sealer. We chose carbon for the ultimate combination of strength and heat resistance. At 3.75 inches in diameter, the tube is the biggest on the market. The tube needs to be as big as possible to minimize pressure losses in the intake system for turbocharger performance.

Our Carbon Intake is designed inside a 3D environment using 3D scans of the engine bay.  This allows us to design quickly and easily in a real world setting and attain a perfect OEM fit the first time.

Great CAI

Love the positive impacts to HP & Torque across rev band. Also enjoy hearing the noises as well...very cool. I would like for there have been different would be color options for the filter and some of the other components to help dress up the engine bay. Hope yall will develop some new products soon for my wife's 2021 Kia Soul Turbo as well.

Great intake

First off let me say this review would be 5 stars if the information said that this has the bpv valve on the silicon piece by the air filter. The picture and video used to show install does not show the bpv. Now have to buy the plug to by pass. Other then that an amazing product amazing qauailty and sound.


Spectacular craftsmanship and fit. Love the diameter of the intake and the increase in both throttle response and some pep in the step.

Excellent Craftsmanship and superior performance

I often find myself saying "its the little things that make a BIG difference" when I am talking about cars, so when I got my SXTH Cold Air Intake in the mail, I must've said that phrase at least 5 times. From the gorgeous bright orange inners of the silicon elbow joints, to the high-gloss carbon fiber pipe, down to the high-quality and durable clamps, the SXTH CAI stands out amongst competitors simply by being better and thoughtful in its design and engineering.
Ive watched countless videos on how these guys work tirelessly in CAD to develop their products. They have the latest tech and they know how to use it.
I have not yet put my soul on a dyno to verify the gains this CAI has brought to my car, but one thing I can confirm is that the sounds it makes and the feel of the car has brought smiles for miles to my face.
In conjunction with the Blow Off Valve (which is also a new product for them for the 1.6l turbo engines), my Soul, well, now has a soul - a very loud one at that!

Pricing is very reasonable and the shipping did not take long at all. Best part of the whole experience is the communication from SXTH I received prior to making my purchase. While this CAI isnt specific to the 2020-2022 Soul Turbo, it was built for the 1.6l turbos that most of Hyundai and Kia's vehicles use in some form. SXTH assured me that if it didnt fit perfectly, I could send it right back for a full refund. But, to my delight, it fit like a glove and was very easy to install. They even have a helpful youtube install video.

Worth. Every. Penny.

The best intake

Very good product, as SXTH knows how to do excellent. It was released a lot, and soon I will order the closure of the filter

Work of Art

Let me start off with, I never wanted a cold air intake on my car I feel they do nothing but make noise which is cool btw. HOWEVER when I saw this intake I made an exception the price is right and it looks badass. It’s by far worth the money it’s a work of art, I also ordered the air box as well can’t wait to have it as a complete system.
