Default 2006 Saab 9-3 2.8 Cold Air Intake

Hi! Like the title says, I have a 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero 2.8L V6. I'm looking to buy a cold air intake for it, I haven't been able to find any that would work for my car.

The one I stumbled apon this one "SAAB Air Intake Kit (Black) - do88 IR110SFILTER" from eEuroparts (Won't let me post links yet) But it says that it isn't compatible with my car. Is that true or could you recommend a cold air intake that would work for my car?

Thank you! I found a good one there. Do you think I should replace the stock piping or would it not be worthwhile?

Intakes do nothing on this car. They suck in hot air and make the car slower. You're paying money to go slower. Makes no sense to me.

Also, the car is MAF based. Don't **** with the piping near the MAF.

You can either buy one or be a slave to your mechanic/dealer when you need repairs. Your choice.

I readily agree with the intake, however my IAT's have consistently been 2-3 degrees lower all season than with the factory box. I have reduced the hood temps greatly overall however. For me, the price is for the sound. It's silly, but whatever.

Real power and effeciency is found with water/meth injection. You will never have to worry about intake temps again.

Tried them all and back to the OEM setup. Guys in the UK have dyno results for the do88 intake kit to show it is good for 10-15hp. This includes charge pipe from IC to inlet manifold. Uses metal pipes and allows for higher flow volume from less restrictive design.

Your comment on the MAF is spot on. Same guys from UK have recently moved the MAF unit right next to the airbox to lower the effects of disturbed airflow from dumping larger amounts of compressed air back into the inlet track. Not an issue on stock cars, only when you have a larger IC, bigger comp wheel and higher boost tune - the disturbed airflow sends the MAF into spastic mode causing stumbling issues on a trailing throttle.
