Everyone here does realize that you're not really forcefeeding anything right? You're just allowing fresh air into the intake. Especially us supercharged guys, It'* impossible to reach speeds fast enough to overcompensate the suction the supercharger is creating through the intake piping.

94 we are speaking of "ram air" in loose terms. Technically like you state, the post is more about ducting cooler air where it is desired. And merely having it available.

1994, the ramair effect while directly ramming a NA intake has been proven to be neglible at best.

What I'm doing is NOT the same, and has been proven effective at speeds as low as 30mph. I'm providing a POSITIVE pressure to my CAI to keep engine bay heat out, and typically achieve IAT temps within 5 of ambient. Go back and read my topics.

The other duct is proven to reduce SC temps. All the data is there.

I wasn't doubting your reduced underhood temperatures Will. Just wanted to be sure no one was getting the wrong idea about the "ram air."

Right. It was coined that by someone else for lack of a better term. Shortly thereafter it was coined 'willRam'.
