Is the tubing bolted to the engine or is it floating and possibly banging around on acceleration and deceleration?
Looks great btw.
Looks great btw.
Thanks! I did all this for less than 100.00! I used the Spectre Modular Air Intake System.Looks really good! Damn near production quality. What'd you use to piece it together? I'd be really interested in piecing my own together, if I don't get the SRI from Road Race Motorsports. Might wait till I get out to San Diego in September though.
Mileage improved today with a peak of 35.1 and averaged 33.6.. Same time of day, same route, same temps. I wonder if the ECU has adjusted. This means that a CAI would probably increase mileage back to 38 or better on the same stretch.OK, update--The Mileage on the freeway has gone below stock to the best of 29 (in areas I could get 38) and average 27.5 where I could get 35.5. I feel this is going to be a problem with all short ram type intakes due to the warm engine air.
I plan to Dyno at Friday at 9:30am @ MechTech MS. If there are any SD Forte folks that want to join come on up. I will be dynoing the following:
1. My 3" Short Ram kit with Conical filter.
2. Stock Airbox with stock filter and Charcoal
3. Stock Airbox with Drop-in K&N and Charcoal removed.
This should be very interesting. Remember a Short Ram will always dyno better with the hood open as most dyno test are performed this way. As always, pics are in order.
Thanks on the props....Really nice work ! I was admiring the job then noticed no MAF sensor , are we MAP ? Is there room for a CAI without having to relocate the battery or holesaw cut an exit thru the inner fender or rad support .
