Cool Ram Air Intake on E-bay.. Interesting

Link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/aw-cg...916025&r=0&t=0

Slick design but doesn't talk about the dangers of hydro-lock. Hate to be the poor bastard who buys it and seizes his motor in the first rainfall.

I dont think there would be enough water sucked up by that to make it hydro-lock. When ever I have seen a Honda (giggle) HydroLock has been when it was driven through a large puddle to the point of the air filter being put under water and it able to gulp enough water for it to fill the intake up.

Unless its a Tsunami outside or something, I dont think there would be enough water being indgested by the intake to make a huge difference.

Remember that some of the old muscle cars have messed with water injection to help detination in High compression motors, same with turbo setups, so some water can actualy be helpfull, just not glassfulls at once

Looks like a variant of the short stack ram air mod on this site. I'm sure it breathes better, but at what cost.

I used a similiar system on my 2000 for a couple of months. Of course I did not have to have a MAF adaptor made since mine has a MAP located after the throttle body. The system worked well, especially above 5000 rpms. However I felt that I lost too much torque in the low to mid range. I am now using a system where I have the factory black box, with no filter in it, attached to the TB. Then I have a three inch intake pipe running from it to the hole in the passenger side fender. I have a cone flter on the pipe, and it is surrounded by a heat shield. I can run really, really hard with the car, then get out and the filter is still cool to the touch. Now I just have to cover the pipe with some kind of insulation to keep it a little cooler.

I have a similar intake on my 2000 w/a "bell"
attached to the throttle body and then the K&N cone on top...I am also making a cold air box for the filter so there really is a
"RAM" air effect. I have headers and exhaust
and did not notice a low end drop but 3500 to 5500 goes real fast:-) I have driven in rain storms with "no" ill effects, but want to create the cold air box to remove most of the water coming in and a coarse filter inside the scoop to keep out bugs and small animals:-)
