Default BEST AIR INTAKE

I have spent a few weeks trying to find the best solution to what I like to call "THE COLD AIR CRISIS". AirBox mod to aftermarket Intakes Ive been searching high and low for the best. Im currentlley using the shorten snorkel with K&N drop in and its nice. I feel a bit more power and get decent sound from it but I know theres more I can gain. I recentley stumbled upon this set up which I will inclose a pik of to see what you guys think about this airbox mod. On the after market i guess ive narrowed it down to three. 1. K&N 57 2. S&B Intake system 3. Volant 13424. Ive just been looking for systems that utilize the hole in the fender to bring in cold air. I also like the AFE unit aswell. I dunno maybe im going to far into this just want to get it right thast all

The one you have a picture of is drawing too much warm/hot air from the engine. The very best is the OEM box modification leaving the stock air box the way it is except for a few modifications and a K&N drop in filter.

Whatever you use, your not gonna feel a kick-in-the-pants improvement. It doesn't work that way on our cars. A tiny bit better throttle response and a heck of a lot of noise, if you use the short ram intake like you have now.

Do your search on the forum, not online at what the market has to offer.

beating a badly beaten dead horse with the intake stuff. Go aftermarket or do the airbox mod and be done with it. Do it twice or more and youre just wasting your own time and money.

Looks bad to me. Lots of tubing that you don't need. Nothing to stop the warm/hot air from getting to the filter.

Your looking for the best. The best draws in cool air from the fender well and gets it right to the throttle body without too much resistance or turbulence.

The Volant, K&N, Air-raid all do that for $200-$300. For next to little, the "air-box mod does the same thing with just a little modding by yourself and a drop in filter. Doesn't sound like the more expensive boxes that I mentioned so if you like noise too, go that route.
