Default Unit's New Intake

I performed a hack and slash intake system modification. My roommate, generously donated time and money to build me a new intake.

Intake Overview.jpg

We took the GT upper air box, a 3inch to 2inch 45 degree reducer pipe, cut a hole for the IAT. Then put a 3 inch black PVC pipe on the lower air box. Also Capped off the old PCV port on the air box and put a mini cone filter on the valve cover.

It now has a really cool deep sound at about 3000 RPM under moderate acceleration, but remains quite at idle.

Sounds like you got something between the airbox mod and the all out cone mod. For a sound that is more aggressive but not annoying.

Looks like you did a fun project for the extra sound of the engine.

I would not use any type of part on the "breather" side of the valve cover. They do not work well and will restrict in a very short time pressurized crankcase air needing to evacuate the engine. You can run a open hose from the breather side down the engine and secure it with zip ties.

To many see them on engines on the internet think they are functional and kool having that race look and than later when bad things happen to the engine never thought the start was because of that stupid breather filter so close to the exit port on the valve cover!

Well for now it should work better considering the foam in the lower part of the airbox was burnt and crusty.
