Default Heat in the intake?

OK if i pull off the little resonator-type nose cone for the winter (keeping in mind averages below 40* F usually ALOT below that) Will i get enough heat in the intake to cancell out the freeer breathing ? (What im talking about is circled below)

Not sure why you would want to do this? At idle the heat is going to build for sure and at speed you would loose any ram jet effect caused by the tube drawing air from the head light?

HRmm ... well i would want to do this because of how restrictive that thing looks. It looks like a bassackwards funnel. I was looking for a ittle more gumble and a little freer air movement cause of less resriction. I am eventually making my own version ov a CAI with aluminum tubing, but thats proly not too soon coming because i dont have enough time. . So were looking like its not a good idea right now?

If you pull that, it'll allow more air and ALOT more noise. You'll lose the intake resonator (that little can thingy attached to it).

If you do this, run larger tubing out to the headlight/fender. Do like I did on my stock intake before the ADTR. Pics on my website if you don't remember what it looked like.

I'd just take the whole front half of the airbox off and glue the filter in place so it doesn't fall out.


Seriously, cut some holes and run some more tubing into it like Will did.

L27 doesn't have a resonator on it. I think it'* more of a resivoir for the Supercharger, so when it sucks big air, it'* got some reserves.

No, they bolt up differently.

Just wondering, because it moves the front of the box out away from the engine more. I used to have pics of this, but the MN server is hiding them...
