You are talking like the filter placement is resting on an exhaust manifold. What are you running RWHP? Show me dyno numbers that prove your theory of the colder air... oh wait, the car is not moving when its on the dyno so I guess there are no numbers. But hey.... there is a HP improvment from gaining more air flow. Now tell me where there is a better filter location without cutting into any sheetmetal. There is nothing wrong with speed_demon's setup nor the inductions that are being made here or have been sold in AUS. Yes a baffle blocking around the filter (not restricting) will cause the filter to grab more cooler air from the stock air source, but be honest here ... that will not be a magical 10mph gain in the 1/4 mile.Lumina ss said:And ten second anythings run intercoolers to do what? your other problem is thinking the airbox is the major restiction to getting enough air to a stock motor, it isn't Im running 400 at the fly through a stock airbox, high flow filter, an extra 3'' pipe throughh to the cold air shroud and as 100mm MAF to throttle body pipe. These motors "love" cold air and "hate" hot air. In the GTO/monaro/commodore the under bonnet temps are ridiculous.
I ordered those same MAF ends other night myself.. should work great till a specific MAF comes out for our cars. I have a extra Granatelli that I was using, but took it off because of a check engine light (wasnt MAF related though) ..I didn't want to chance another check engine light.speed_demon_fre said:I have a T Byrne MAF ends on it. There is actually more plastic that can come out of the area there. Its the black plastic that sits behind the head light. If it comes out you have more holes in the frame for cold air to come through.
I think that filter need a 45* angle pointing down.
The air box and the coolant overflow just pull off. No tools need to remove them from the car..other then removing the cover of the air box (where the filter goes)
Just give them a gentle pull and they come off.
