Custom CAI question

Unread postby Fasterthangas » Wed Apr 12, 2017 2:50 pm

I've been thinking about going back to the factory air intake or something similar for my car. My large conical filter sits in the engine bay as far forward as possible. I'm thinking the factory air box would be much better at deterring high ACT's.
The issue is that I run a 90mm LMAF and a 75mm TB. The factory inlet tubing is a small diameter.
This is a show and go car so I don't wish to do a hack job. I've considered using reducers to get everything to fit but not sure of the effects on air flow and the MAF. I've also considered an in fender CAI kit but the bends concern me.

Any thoughts or help are greatly appreciated. Attached is a pic of my current setup.

Here's my current setup on my Ranger:

Currently, the MAF only sees heat soaking if I let it run while it's not moving. As soon as it's driving, the IATs come down to around the external air temperature, maybe only a little warmer than that.

easiest and most effective method would be to make a box that shields the filter against engine heat

Agreed. I'm going to install this: http://marchperformance.com/accessories/ram-air-kits/ram-air-kit-parts/air-box-for-ram-air.html
