The following is the manufacturer's description of the product:
We are excited to introduce our new intake system for the 1.4L turbocharged Chevy Cruze. You won’t find a higher quality or better performing intake on the market. We have designed this intake using parts from our already proven Sonic intake system, and combined them with a new heat shield specifically built for the Cruze engine bay. Our intake does a fantastic job of keeping out power robbing heat by surrounding the air filter with an aluminum heat shield equipped with an outer rubber gasket that makes contact with not only the interior panels of the engine bay, but also extends upward to seal against the hood when closed. Since hot air rises, having a heat shield that seals against the hood to create a barrier, ensuring the best results possible. This barrier blocks out the hot air trapped along the “ceiling” of the engine bay, and allows cooler denser air to be drawn in instead.

During our testing, we found this intake system to deliver accurate airflow metering with the OE mass air flow calibration meaning this intake can be used with our without a performance / custom tuning / calibration. We found the sound and the quality of the kit to surpass most of the other mass market intake systems available for this vehicle.
