Intake

Does anyone know an intake system for a lattitude 2018 compass that is better than the K&N ?

Yep, its called "the one it came with from the factory"

Honestly though, aftermarket air intakes have not been able to provide any amount of measurable benefit for a couple decades now. The teams of engineers who build vehicles in the highly competitive automotive market today simply do not leave even 3-4 HP on the table anymore. These little engines are squeezing out nearly double the power of similar sized (or larger) engines of years gone by. They are getting all the air they can use just fine through the factory filter and tube. If anything you only stand to loose power or mileage by swapping out a carefully designed OEM part with some chunk of random pipe from an aftermarket company. A handful of need-for-speed tokyo-drift wannabes slapping cheap crap together for mass production to capitalize on the last dregs of fast-n-furious hype do NOT know more/better than the people who designed and built the engine.

Its your money though, do whatever you like. Just seems like a shame to have such a nice brand new vehicle and somehow its not good enough the way you got it. Marketing teams have really done a good job of fooling people into imagining that somehow their car barely made it out of the factory in working condition but, if you slap their Chinese pipes and filters and LED's and put their resistor (I mean, "performance chip") on the intake temperature sensor THEN you'll have some kind of crazy hot-rod... as if.

I don't mean to be so negative about it, I spent a lot of money on this garbage back in the day and if anything I'm typing angrily about it now because I'm mad at my past-self for wasting those dollars instead of spending it having more good times with friends and family. We all waste our money once in a while on something dumb.
