The part I REALLY disagree with is the restriction of air. Like I said before, people perform "Blue bombers intake mod" and this mod also restricts air. Yet it seems to work great for people.
now i know your a tool
jesus some people are just too thick headed
The main reason why blue bombers Intake
mod works is because of the faulty design of aftermarket Intakes
the bends in the Intake
pipe greatly affect air flow accross the maf (mass air flow meter for you) and the other contributing factor is the placement of the mounting flange for the maf (still following me?)AEM
used to have these hand welded into place which would cause the maf to sit just a tad out of the center of the pipe which would cause incorrect maf readings
these readings would cause check engine lights, which is why a lot of CAI
owners reported problems with. Their fix was to change the location, make the mounting of the bracket in a standard location which would then prevent incorrect maf readings and not cause a cell.
okay now what do we know so far i'll recap
maf placement greatly affects the readings.
Okay thats great now your wondering why the hell those fins are in there stock if each part is supposidly identical, well because they aren't and toyota realized this, so they installed fins inside the Intake
track to "direct" airflow across the maf and provide proper readings for the ecu, thus never causing a cell.
So why does the "blue bomber" Intake
mod work so well you ask?
its not because of the "restriction" its because it directs air across the maf to read correctly. Its fixing an inhearant problem with CAI
and maf positioning, it has nothing to do with the tornado or your logic that your applying
Its blatenly obvious you dont understand why the tornado restricts airflow, and no amount of convincing from me or examples i provide will seep in. So its useless to go on but I dont want you preaching to other noobs how great a product it is when its not.
