Default Custom intakes...

Ok i bought a weapon R dragon intake system and after i put it on i noticed a huge increase in power on the top end but if im sitting at a stop sign or what ever and i put the pedal to the floor it almost stalls and then slowly picks up and then at like 1000 rpms it takes off . its really wiered, I think if i put the stock air box (the one that connects to the back of the thottle body) back on and then modify the custom aluminum intake to hook up to that it might fix the problem. ive heard you will have more power this way because the engine needs that instant gulp of air. does anybody know the solution to my problem or anything about this subject? any input would be great.

Do you have a MAF sensor? If I was you, I would go with an Injen Technologies Cold Air Intake. The one you have is definently a pile of junk. Is it true the intake you have turns on your check engine light?

So what's the differnence between a $150-$250 intake, and those things you can get on Ebay for $25? I mean, they can't be that much different, as the piping is usually always mandrel bent whatever. I guess the biggest differences would be from the filter, and the fact that some of those things don't have enough vacuum line fittings, right?

Double check your vacuum lines and make sure all fittings/clamps are air tight. Be sure your connections are air tight. Reset your ECU! Your off idle throttle response shouldn't be like that.

Oh yeah, vacuum lines, and also make sure you didn't somehow knock off the coolant sensors plugs. Or one of them. Basicly, just get under your hood, and look for anything that isn't attatched to somethig else, and figure out where it needs to go.

My cel never came on, I am deffinately going to check over my vacuum lines this afternoon and see if thats what is causing my problem. I almost possitive none of my sensors are loose but i should probably check all of them to make sure they're still good. Has anyone ever had a burning rubber smell out of there hood (and sometimes smoke ). I dont know whats up, it seems to be a alternator belt or something i felt them the other day after running it around town and they were very hot ? im telling you my outback does some wiered things. i wanna kick the dealers a** that sold it to me . Oh well this happen to me with every car, itll run like crap until i fix everything then ill be a happy man

With a filter directly on the tb, i did it to, i dont think it gains a whole lot but only makes an interesting sound. What intake do you get the most out of? Is there one that goes throw the passenger side iner fender and down behind the fog light? Would that do better? Has anyone tryed a 1st gear scratch i know its hard on the tranny but.

Eh... I think it has to do with MAF. I made my own intake out of PVC pipe... It works fine (runs lean, so 89 octane is required during the summer time), no bogging at low RPM.

BTW, IIRC, if you give it 75% throttle instead of flooring it, it won't bog and when it hits 900 rpm~ish, give it the lead.

When you launch the car, you shouldn't be going below around 1500 rpm anyway. I know when I launch my car, I slip the clutch so it stays at about 2500 rpm. Easier on the Hydrolic clutch, compared to a cable clutch.

my car does it too. i have a weapon R, and yes, my car has a MAF.....however, i was once told that the reason why the stock airbox has so many large open chamber was to have adequite air for these intense and sudden rich conditions that the engine faces when the throttle is mased from a dead stop.....oh, and is you're car an automatic ??

mine is.
