Yes Will, I have got it down to within 5* of outside air. It'* not as professional looking as yours but it works.

But yours is nearly invisible from the front of the car. I wish mine was. I want a sleeper. What happened to your stars?

Will, yours look very good with that low profile. You do have a sleeper....one that snores now.
The scoops on my Bird are quite a bit larger.


Heh, heh, look at all those stars.

Hey Silver, what Diameter pipe did you use there? After seeing yours before I've be wanting to do something Similar feeding into my Thrasher CAI box. Also going to wrap it up with that isulating stuff, but leave the clear plexi top.

When I goto intense in 2 days, I'm going to pick up some of their intake tubing to move my trasher box over some and thought same tubing might work for some ram air tubing.

Let me know soon please!
Thanks

It'* standard 4" dia flexible hose. It'* a perfect tight fit for the fender opening hole and it just fits in behind the fog light. About 4 feet long....I forgot to measure it, so get a piece about 5 feet long to make sure.

I like what Will did on his car. I'd like to do something similar for the opposite side to cool the supercharger too but there are a few wires going thru the passenger side fender hole and even a 2" hose would be tight. Oh well, I'll just have to be satisfied with turning my fans on high speed with the manual switch to keep things cooler come summer.

Hey thanks Silver, I'll get 5 feet for this little project here, and figure one foot to help move my CAI box over.

I'm looking at your pic here and wondering how you mounted it, or didn't you. looks pretty tight like the duct just sits there.



Thanks again, something to work on soon. I agree about trying to make another to cool the charger off. The Pass side fender is tight. I've been in there looking around when my Angle eyes went in and thinking I couldn't run a big duct threw there. oh well, fresh air to the box will have to do.
