  • Update on my duratec - cold air intake

    Well, got the heater out and re-routed the air-filter. Next step is to fabricate a cold air box, and I just found a good candidate to be hacked in to shape at work.

      Very nice.

      I did a bit of experiments on cold intakes (and spoke to AEM people) a while back. It turns out that the cold air intake usually does keep the intake air temp down, until you stop. About 30-40 seconds after you come to a standstill (idling), the tubing gets heat soaked and the temperature crawls back up. Once you take off again, the air sucked into the engine cools off the tubing within a couple of seconds.

      With that in mind, you may want to consider some kind of insulation of your tubing.

        Once I am happy with the setup I am going to look at getting some mandrel bent or welded tube then have that ceramic coated to replace the flex intake tube I am using. I will likely wrap it in the meantime also, actually that would help me solve the issue of filling the gap around the tube going in to the box!
