    smart fortwo (451 - US vehicle)
    Hello #SmartFriends I have an issue where I need your assistance. I Just got an intake system for my car. It is the Injen SP1000 and its supposed to be designed for Smart ForTwo from 2008 to 2012. I have a 2012 and the pictures shown on the instructions are not the same to what my engine is...

    smart Modifications
    I have the intake upgrade(in red!!) from smart madness and am excited to put it in and want to be sure I have everything I need before starting. Can I reuse the clamps from oem intake on new silicone hose? Is there any misc. parts I need on hand that I will need, special tools/fasteners/etc...
  3. IAT's Anybody?

    smart General Discussion
    Hey guys, just wanted to make a thread to see what kind of IAT's you guys were seeing. How much above ambient does your system run? What type of intake setup are you running?

    Hey all, Just purchased my first Smart car a couple weeks back. '09 Brabus Fortwo. Love it so far! Looking at purchasing a cold air intake, perhaps an Injen or one from Smart Madness, and was wondering if the cold air intake will cause the car to fail an emissions test. Might be a dumb...
  5. Aftermarket Intake Heatshield lose

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I had a hell of a time loosening the bolts provided by Smart Madness on their intake to clean the filter the other day. Lucky for me I realized why they were so tight, they keep the heat shield (or dust cover) in place. Now to today's story... I had the unluckiness of not tightening them as...

  12. Silicone intake hose

    smart Modifications
    Has anyone in the US found a source for silicone intake replacements like this? 71BHP or 61BHP Silicone Air Intake Pipe Looks like a reasonable cost way to increase airflow with a K&N or Breathless filter.
  13. Another Intake option-Can you say "HYDROLOCK"?

    Interior & Exterior
    I found this rooting around the other day: http://www.smartcar-performance.com/id31.html I have to applaud the idea of moving the filter down into a cool airstream, but it apparently doesn't ever rain where these guys live. It's no problem to suck water into the filter and seize the engine...

    smart Modifications
    just finished installing new air intake/filter for my 08' cabrio. i ordered it from smart parts direct. it makes the car sound great & it definitely feels like it pulls harder off the line. probably a 30 minute install if you have the correct tools:torx t-30, flat blade screwdriver & flexible...
