However, I doubt that it would be any more beneficial to the Typhoon than the snorkel delete (with cutout) is.

There's already plenty of cool air available to the Typhoon at speed. I see very little heating of the intake from the OBD2 data, except at a stop, and the temps recover quickly when back in motion. This is before any "ram-air" mods. I have not performed the newmission or the snorkel delete with my setup (yet).
I obviously don't have that sort of data, and can merely speculate. Some report better mileage with Newmissioned setups, and the question has arisen by a few about modding the Typhoon. Until it is actually tried, we aren't going to know 100% in either direction.

True. Again--not meaning to question your methods, just voicing my doubt.

No, I didn't take it like that. Civil debate and rational exchange of thought is cool, it's those that refuse to at least hear the opposite side that are worthless to me.

I'm pretty curious to see what happens...

Shopvac air into the ramair intake without the dyno fan blowing, that would be similar no?

Similar to driving conditions? No, not if the hood was up. The filter element in an aftermarket intake would be more open to ambient air if the hood was up, and thus the results wouldn't reflect real-world operation.

dyn085,

How dangerous is the snorkel delete to be driving around in heavy raining conditions?

Just the snorkel delete, not the flap cutting or removal.

Thanks!

No rain can access the intake runners if you do not have the flap cut. Even when the flap is cut, water would have to travel vertically a couple inches to reach the opening. On the hypothetical scenario that water did actually get into the tube, it would flow into the box and be relieved by the drains built into the bottom.

I understand your concern and want to add that I take my car to auto-washes usually 3 out of every 4 weeks (I know, but I'm busy and time is at a premium) and have never had an issue. I always leave the car running, and even with the pressure nozzles aimed directly at the opening and about a foot from the car. I haven't opened the airbox after a wash to verify, but I could probably do that this weekend

I have real world experience now from last night's "storm", I drove home (60mile trek) on the highway in pretty more-than-normal rain and I have not 1 problem. I even checked my air filter once I got home and its bone dry. So is the pipe. I approve this message.
