Default Mod in the making... Ram air duct, nearly finished

Just thought id show you lot.. cos im nice like that ( bored really)

A mod in the making, this will be my ram induction pipe to the airbox on my scoob. This should hopefully creat a nice force fed system

Both the cover and the stainless trumpet will be painted this weekend in the cars body colour.

Its quite large at 3" bore but should do the trick, i wanna get those ambient temps down at the MAF!!

TBH its not really my cuppa at the mo cos its a bit ugly and a bit garish (spelling) lol

Not into bolt on tat!!

However,

Its there to do a job though so once its all painted up it should be nice.
Ive got the black, sprung loaded, fibreglass, race spec ducting for it too, so should look like a nice professional job when people inevitably look down it

Photos of the fog cover taken on my phone, quite good i thought lol





Going on this

I'd be more tempted to use it a brake duct. Either way, that car is looking good and so it the duct.

Cheers,

Still not decided on wheels, concentrating on power and handiling at the moment mate lol

Im wanna hold off running an induction kit aslong as poss as i like the idea of a foce air setup.

The standard system is rubish... the outside ambients are say 14 deg c i'll be getting like 40 deg c at the MAF where the air is being drawn from the engine bay etc.

Maybe when i run a FMIC and i have to go to a CAI i'll put a port in the other side and run them to the brakes

That is a slick frontend. Do they make a similar setup for the 04/05 look?

get wet. the risk of water is about the same as it is any other time. not like you really have to worry about unless you drive into the ocean or a lake anyway

OK, I'm not going to flame you because I think it looks awesome. I'd keep it stainless though. It's too pretty to paint.

But I would take issue with a few things. First, you have a turbocharged car, so I wouldn't think you would need ram air intake. The air is already getting rammed in there by the turbo. I would think if you need to reduce the temps coming in to the intake, putting the intake opening close to the exhast level of most cars isn't the way to go (but I really have no idea ).

Also, as someone already mentioned, if you go through a deep puddle, you could risk getting a nice chunk of water into your engine which will leave you high and dry, so to speak. I think the risk is very much increased with this intake opening being in this position. But you CAN get around that by making a bend in the intake tubing. If you have a dip before it goes back up to the engine (similar to the snorkus), you might be able to eliminate the risk of water intake.

Either way, I think it looks really cool and I can't wait to see the finished pics.

LOL cheers for your responses guys,

It will be all painted black by the weekend, i really dont like the huge shiny bell mouth TBH.
Im doing this more than anything for the temps, the standard setup is useless as even with an ambient temp of say 14 deg C im getting more like 40+ at the MAF.. This is unacvceptable IMO.
Even though the car is turbocharged it will still greatly benifit from having a force fed, fully loaded airbox. I really can see rain being an issue as the water would have to navigate itself up the spiraled pipe. I may make a water trap, i dunno yet.
