**MODS** When this thing is over with, can you PLEASE clean up my thread? Including this comment. Thanks!
Great video, but I think I can further reduce the materials cost if I use an old lampshade, empty toilet paper rolls and some tinfoil from last night's take out. What do you think? LOL!!!

The lampshade as a funnel was actually my first choice. But the garage sales in my area were running thin. Garage sales are a good place to get "high quality materials" right? I mean it is from a garage after all. lol!!!

it ain't rocket science. And yeah cut any and all non fanboy postings. Reads way better and keeps the fanboys from whimpering..
There it is…. the requisite Wikipedia quote!

I deplore the use of Wikipedia as a source. Deplore it I say!!!!

Maybe I can clarify the vacuum/ pressure discussion.

Everyone of us is living our lives being subjected to atmospheric pressure. Here on earth that pressure is approx. 14.7 pounds per square inch at sea level. It varies with the weather (barometric pressure) and will be lower when standing on top of a mountain, more at the bottom of a canyon that is below sea level.

That pressure you are subjected to comes from the column of air that is above you from where you are standing to outer space. That column has weight and you have some square inches of surface area, divide the weight in pounds by the square inches and you get pounds per square inch or psi.

For convenience stake pressure above atmospheric is referred to as positive pressure and below atmospheric as vacuum.

Someone mentioned the ideal gas law. In this law with all other things remaining constant pressure varies inversely with volume. That is volume goes up pressure goes down. This relates to your engine in that you have a volume of air above the piston at atmospheric pressure. When the piston starts down it's stroke that volume above the piston gets larger and the pressure goes down. The air outside the cylinder is still at atmospheric so when the intake valve opens the higher pressure air moves to the lower pressure air to equalize.

That's what we've been arguing about! I think it sucks too! Thank you kindly sir.

BTW, the video G-Fez is referring to is NOT me. It is some douche on youtube using Home Depot dryer duct, and was meant as a joke. My mod is on the OP, and uses an actual Gates radiator hose. So if you're ragging on my mod, that's great! But PLEASE don't mix me up with that guy in the video!!!!!

Not ragging on it at all, just trying to bring a little humor to this thread. I think the mod is pretty cool actually. I might actually give it a go at some point in the future.

Well alright! MY MAN! You will be pleased with the bonus 4-5mpg (true story), and $200 bucks in your pocket savings over a CAI.

Yeah I may (or not? I am really gettin' lazy..try something like this to allow a little more air in the box.
I bought a k&N air filter off Amazon. (the local autostores are like what? for a 2012.. no way. not in out computer...)
So i also plan on the Ford exhaust.
So I might do some sort of change in the box, though not the ram effect stuff. Have to see if the regular intake goes where,, and if adding something in the wj=heel well can do more...
The ford stainless freer flowing exhaust I want mostly due to the car being too quiet. I just have a tough time shifting by ear with it
