Jim, send the picture to www.photos@ptcruiserlinks.com Ask Jody if he would post the picture for you. Include the title of this topic so he knows where to place it.

I took a look at jims (amx) intake and its routed pretty good. Also sounds great!

Hmmm...what about a small fan in line with this ducting?
I may be fan crazy (see I/C fan Mod) but its just an idea.
Water may be an issue, but not really if the ducting is going vertically and has a couple of bends.
Then again this may be overkill....

I haven't taken the time to really look hard yet...but I think the answer lies in a old drag racing trick...remove the batery to the rear of the car (battery relocation kits) to give room to run a cold air duck to the front of the car. I know the battery relocation trick was/is used to get more weight over the rear suspension in a rear-wheel drive car, but it sure would free up space in the PT engine compartment.

Deen, good idea, but where would you mount it without the gases, which the battery emits, creating a problem for the occupants since the Cruiser has no trunk?

One company made a fan kit for the non-turbo PT Cruiser. It went inline with the intake hose and would generate substantial air flow increase when turned on. It drew a lot of current. It was discussed late 2001 or early 2002 in the PT Crusier Club.org forum area.

FWIW, I think we are building enough pressure (perhaps too much for the PCM to consistently manage[:I]).

I think that cooling the intercooler would be a better place to concentrate on. Just my $.02 (adjusted for inflation to give you the full load)[8D]

hyracer, I'm with you on the battery issue http://www.ptcruiserlinks.com/forum/...?TOPIC_ID=2499

More room to think without all that clutter. Might even be able to use pre-existing tube designs that are powdercoated or polished.
