Re: intake help (lancogti21)

NOT a p-flo, that's for sure.
You basically got 2 options: 1-- cut some holes in the fender side of your airbox, and remove the silencer (5 or so hp)
2-- get an open-element filter-style intake that situates the filter in your fender (some claim like 8-10 hp, but I wouldn't know). I know http://www.evoms.com makes em, and so does http://www.eurosportacc.com. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
I'd say go # 2 if you got the cash.

Thats good stuff right there. I have to agree too. The down side to a Pflow from Neuspeed or a Qflow from ABD racing, is that they sit right next to the egine in the bay. So they suck warm air in from the bay. So you gain a nice sound, but in turn little if any power. Some people, my self include feel that you may even lose HP with a set up like the ABD or Neuspeed.
I am running the ABD Big Bore and Qflow. While the sound is nice, the power gains are not noticeable, but the throtel response is. I feel that a heat shield put around the open element air filter would help alot to keep warm air from getting into the intake track. But also a ram air system in witch air is forced in to the heat shield from under the bumper via a hose would help even more.
This is just my 2 cents.
Hope it helps.

I added a heatshield, and it didn't really do much for me. No noticeable gains at all. That's why you should go with the REAL cai, instead of spending an equivalent amount on a p-flo/heatshied (like 150) and an ABD big bore (like 120) http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif
