Gi_Jo_Nathan Interesting.

SRH1776 So I did the Newmission mod. Only issue is that I'm running a K&N Typhoon short ram instead of the stock box. That being said, a modified version of this mod still proved effective.

I bought a funnel and some pool hose from Lowes and made a version of this intake. The main difference is that since I have an aftermarket intake, I just ran the flexible hose right up to the pod filter.

Results? While cruising temps remained steady where they were before the modification, WOT runs were a whopping 40+ degrees less than it was without the mod. The intake temps before were peaking at 122. After the mods, it never topped 80 (for reference, today was 70 ambient). So, while it didn't do much for steady state, it certainly reduced heat recirculation in the air intake.

SRH1776 Yeah, I'd hate to put a bird through my engine. Interesting. Mayne I should buy another triangle anf open it up just to use a screen.

Toaster-Six I ran that for a few days while I was waiting for a triangle piece I bought online to cut up.
It ran just as fine, but you should cover it up so nothing funky get in your engine bay.

I also read somewhere that removing the grills will mess a bit with your aerodynamics

SRH1776 Yeah, possibly. I thought I saw on this thread that someone was thinking of doing that so they didn't have to tear up their OEM triangle piece.

Gi_Jo_Nathan You talking about making about makeing some sort of scoop for the whole thing?
10-15-2015 03:15 PM
SRH1776 The whole triangle.
10-15-2015 02:47 PM
Gi_Jo_Nathan The triangle, or the lower removable part of the triangle?
10-15-2015 02:20 PM
SRH1776 Just a follow up for this mod: did anyone ever try removing the entire triangle and running the mod without it in? I know some people discussed it but I didn't see any resolution on it.

So far, sounds great and my mafs graph in Torque is showing a smoother line.

Except I didn't drill out my airbox. Or use a 3inch rubber pipe.
I bought a 2inch (I think) pvc pipe and elbow piece and painted them heat resistant black.
I also managed to grab a spare grill piece, but these didn't have the removable piece, so I ended up using a dremel and cutting the whole receded parts out, but left in slots so i could slide wire mesh in.

Then I had a foam cylinger and i cwrved it out for an airtight air box fit.
I love it. Though I still need to fashion a scoop at the front

Very nice, looks like a much less invasive way to incorporate this.
