That is the one thing that will hold me back from getting a procharger, but then again it is cooled before entering the engine.2k5stang said:That's a awesome idea Peewee, I got the procharger and the setup for where it gets air is just horrible!!! I want to attempt and make my own like the prototypes pictures had. I guess I have a project for the weekend!! Where do you pick up that tubing?
The design looks pretty poor if you look at it... most of the intercooler sits behind a spot that gets no air. If you felt any part of the tubing after it's been running it's HOT!!! you will burn yourself it's hot enough. I just notice this yesterday cause I in the process of making everything shine in my engine.Waxed'05 GT said:That is the one thing that will hold me back from getting a procharger, but then again it is cooled before entering the engine.
I had started the same thing but never got around to finishing it. I was planning on using some galvanized metal used in central air ducting. Some really odd angles though and I've contemplated using aluminum flexible drier ducting.ultraclyde said:funny you should mention that...I'm making mine right now. Just came in for a lunch break. The basic idea is to open up the honeycomb on the lower grill trim piece, and use 4" thin wall PVC to direct air up towards the CAI. It won't be a true, pressurized ram, but it should funnel cooler air into the area of the intake. My plan is to make a couple comparison runs using SCT's datalogging to compare air intake temps - one run with the opening blocked ( stock) and some open.
I'm not a huge fan of PVC - it always looks ghetto. But, there are enough reliable plastic paints around, and it won't be visible unless you're under the car. maybe somebody will steal my design, then I can buy a nicely molded one!!!
