Cold Air intake with factory box 2.7
Hey guys just thought I would add one of my ideas here.
When I had my car hooked up to my laptop (OBDSoftware.net) I was watching my Air intake Temp and noticed that it gets really up there. So I did some searching for CAI's, Mainly for the tubing cause I already bought a K & N filter for stock box. sent a msg to one of the members that sells them and unfortunately the quote I got was too expensive. (Wife would bust a gasket). Anyways did some mesurements and came up with this.
3 in ABS pipling (only need about 2 feet), 1 90degree male -male bend, 1 45 degree male-female bend, 1 3 in to 3 in Rubber coupling & Aluminum tape, ABS cement.
Stock items- Air filter box, and Tube coming off TB (has intake air temp sensor)
So here's the run down:
1 cut one piece 7 1/2 inch (goes into Tube), attach Right angle
2 cut one piece 6 3/4 goes into end of right angle other into rubber coupling.
adjust for angles ABS cement together let dry.
Now I was just gonna paint it but then science kicked in "Heat was still a factor" Wrap the whole thing in the Aluminum tape except for the rubber. while your at it do the box also.
Gonna post some pics when I'm done. As for the tube that comes from the crank case I just put a little filter on that.
*****Now just a thought. the box pulls air from the fender I'm thinking of cutting a hole in the bottom and running a pipe just beside or below the battery to scoop some more cool air. any ideas on this?******
