It may sometimes be difficult to find a lot of info on certain brands, but that's to be expected of certain elite brands. Take Takeda, for instance. The company makes first-rate air intake kits, both cold air and short ram (as well as a convertible model that can operate as either), pre-filters (which come standard with most Takeda intake kits), and filter cleaner kits, yet somehow it has remained somewhat elusive. Not to worry, however, as Andy's Auto Sport is here to get the two of you acquainted.
WHY TO BUY?
Takeda products tend to cost more than those of other manufacturers, but a good investment always goes a long way. If you're like us, you pay a little more for the motor oil you put in your weekend car than you do for your grocery getter, so we all know that there's a difference between products, even if they appear similar. So, skip a few "upsizes" at the drive-thru for a few weeks and give your ride a treat instead.
