I've done this before with other cars and it has worked great. See you guys think it will work. I hope with this idea I don't lose any low end power. I have seen other shortram Intake
dyno where they lost about 8hp and then gain it on top with the rod millen Intake
, I think it was in sport compact magazine.
1. remove butterfly according to previously posted directions.
2. drill 3" hole in bottom of air cleaner housing.
3. connect a 3" tubing to run down into the bumper for cold air, like the fabric type hose with the spring inside. Optionally you can do 2 holes or a large one 4"-5" and run the hose to the lower bumper grille for a little ram air
4. install k&n filter.
5. take a hack saw blade and remove the restriction right before the mass air sensor inside the top of the air cleaner.
Basically this is kinda like a Short Ram Intake
which will get cold air. And it doesn't cost much time or money.
Someone had asked if this would set off the check engine light, but I think its no greater risk then any aftermarket Intake
, since the mass air sensor is unrestricted get full air.
Is my idea sound or frugal???
