This is our revised 1.4L Cold Air Intake. It comes with everything pictured and it will replace your OEM air box with a complete replacement high flow unit. The sound from the bypass valve will be very noticeable with this intake. It will make about 12hp on the stock computer because it leans out the AFR and bumps the boost, but going from a tuned computer to the tuned computer with this intake it will give you about 5-6hp.

For builds in excess of 250whp, the insert can be removed to add more MAF frequency range for tuning.

Durable powder coat finish. Comes with everything needed to install and will take about 30 minutes to install. 

Application: 2011-2018 Sonic 1.4L Turbo.

Super high quality product

Bought the ZZP CAI for my 2017 sonic and wow! Wish I bought this earlier. Turbo and blowoff noise is just the right amount. Car also feels more peppy in the city and on highway. Feels like the car can actually breathe now. Thanks ZZP for the quality product (and packaging). Highly recommend.

Sonic Cold Air Intake

Shipping was fast as usual and intake was super easy to install! Only trouble I had was the front mounting hole not quite reaching to the mounting hole on the core support. My car is a 2019 and this product’s description says it works with up to a 2018 so perhaps this is the reason 2019’s are listed as compatible. Regardless, the intake is secured well with the other included fasteners. Bypass valve noise is heavily increased which I’m not gonna lie, it’s enjoyable! Can tell the car has been woken up big time! Acceleration is way better and the car is that much more fun to drive! Can’t wait to get the downpipe and big turbo upgrade to see what this micro machine can do!

Intake arrived very well packed and very quickly from the day of shipping even during the pandemic. Install instructions were very easy to follow and only needed to bend the outside casing a little bit to line up a bolt hole. I love the sound my car makes during acceleration and every time I let off the gas. First step of many for this car!

Great product!

The intake is crafted with excellence! Got the sound I wanted with a hassel free install. I got it for a 2019 Chevy Sonic and experienced just one minor hiccup. I'm not sure if the 2019 sedan model is made different in the engine bay but in order to bolt it down on the motor mount, it required me to add some bushings/spacers in between due to it being slightly short of the motor mount. Just some feedback for you guys other than that I was impressed by the quality. Also the staff handling emails did an excellent job in helping me with a situation and with that I will forever order from here. Thanks!

Love the Sonic Cold Air Intake

The installation was so easy anyone even without mechanical experience could have breezed through! I’ve seen an immediate power response upgrade, it sounds amazing, and I’ve gotten a slight boost in fuel efficiency as well from what I’ve seen. Great kit, keep up the good work ZZP!
