    Smart comments aside (looking at you Nelson ), I think you are going to find yourself a bit of a trailblazer on this topic. Hell, I experienced some hand wringing over changing spark plugs and transmission fluid. Thus I believe my original point stands that not many people are going to be modifying their air box so soon on a 2018 cx5. I will continue following to see what you might come up with! ; )

    I have been eyeing this for months (as a browser tab that I never close): http://shop.mazmart.com/en/autoexe-f...guide-for-cx-5

    As with many things, it's pricey for a piece of plastic. I need a 3D printer.

    I wonder if critters can find their way up after you removed that mesh filter?

    The Air Filter would block them. Said Mesh Filter sits like 1 inch above the air filter when the air box is closed.........assuming you even have the mesh filter

    Thirty years ago, yeah, you could (and I did) get great increases in power output. That hasn't been true for at least 15 years. And no, your vendor-supplied dyno chart isn't proof. There's dozens of ways to 'help' a dyno run show more HP/T.
    Sorry but you are wrong. I've raced another CX5 (BOTH 2018's) as I posted 3 out of 3 races and even giving him a jump my CX5 with a intake beat him, he's a friend of mine so it was all for fun. I even have a sunroof (weight) and he doesn't.

    Please don't get upset and go off... it's just physical hard proof. I had RAM with a intake and yes I got better mileage using cruise,,, but I also loved the way it sounded when floored. And yes premium fuel makes a difference, just my 2cents. I drive a lot of highway very spiritedly and notice a difference. But it's my wasted money.
