    Do cold air intakes like Takeda really work? Does it really do any wonders in improving a vehicle's horsepower and fuel efficiency?

    yep, altho most modern cars pull air from the cold, high pressure area in front of the rad anyway, so an aftermarket one will only help if the oem item has sound deadening baffles or doesn't fit anymore because of other mods. Fundamentally you want air that is as cold and dense as you can get in order to maximise your volumetric efficiency. Sucking air through a K&N sat ontop of the manifold in underbonnet temperature will cost you power, and increase the risk of detonation issues, especially if you're dicking about with higher boost pressures and haven't uprated the intercooler or fitted water injection.
