yes it is a 1.7 liter, they are not vetc, the intake will give you from 6-10 hp and i would recommend getting a AEM intake, make sure it is cold air intake not short ram alot of difference in the air pull and such.......

Cold air will give u a little more power but dont get it, get short ram intake, cold air is a pain to clean the filter u have to take ur tire off, also when it rains it could suck up water to ur motor. Stay with short ram.
