New fender well intake
Today, I put my K&N filter in the fender well. I have some tubing that easily reaches my throttle body. I took out the windshield washer fluid tank, so I'll need to get one without the headlight washer part.
I wanted to test this out, and I thought it wouldn't give me that much more torque. I went to the entrance of my neighborhood and pushed the gas pedal as much as I usually would just to drive away normally. My car burned out lurched forward really hard.
Also, I noticed I get more boost. I used to get upwards of 5psi, but now I can reach over 7 or so. This is really cool. I took my unwilling dad out for a ride, and he didn't appreciate the acceleration.
I am very excited by this 2+PSI gain. Is this normal? I'm sure getting colder air is good, but I don't know if that could warrant such a gain. I'm going to put on a smaller pulley, so I'm going to change my fuel filter and the like. Should the performance gain be concerning exhaust, fuel filter, and fuel pump-wise?
