hey guy's i have a question


instead of me cutting into the front of my bumper why couldn't i just build something under it like weld a box under it that will take in air

or for 160 bucks i can buy the front piece

but i think im going to ask my dad if i can just build one,, i think it can be done. build it out of steel or Aluminum

TPIS ( I think) has a system that basically draws air from the pressureized area above the radiator. Of course, you have to cut the housing to turn the air filter over.

none right now :(
Ram air helps the most at speed, and is still limited by the other bottle necks in your intake... It should help the most at higher RPM at higher speeds, to help your L98 breathe a bit better... realistically, 10 HP on a basically stock motor.

yeah

umm, im thinking of making my own design
im thinking of puttin ga blower on it that will force air in my intake at slow speeds

what u guy's think,, i have it all designed

the tupe will be like a v shape one that goes outside in front of my car"grill" and the one that goes to my blower

u think this will help me at slow speeds maybe a 5 horse power differance

There is a company that makes electric blowers for cars... To make enough of a difference HP wise, you have to have a pretty powerful blower. It is so powerful that it only comes on at wide open throttle because the car's electircal system can't handle it running all the time (this is the only time it is really necessary anyway, because WOT is when you need more air).

Shadowing seems to be a young buck with an extraordinary penchant for the ultimate 'Vette!

I was like you when I first read his posts, but you have to admit, his enthusiasm is overwelming! (to say the least!)

We all want the "perfect" 'Vette, its just that the "perfect" 'Vette is something different for each of us!
