Intake Question - Heat affects - Focusport please comment

Okay killing the question taht has been asked a thousand times which is really better.

First lemme post this

On a stock car the intakes made these pwoer increases

Volant +6 hp +2 lbft trq

Iceman +5hp +6 lbft trq

FocusSport +4hp +3.1 lbft trq (according to their site)


The iceman doesnt leave the option for a ram air hood (which i will proly not buy, and doesnt really affect the power till about 70mph on the mach one mustang mayeb a littl eless for a car with the filter right under the hole) Plus the panel proly wont flow as much as a cone which is why everyone uses a cone filter.

The focus sport has the better filter because it breaths in through all sides even the front so when the motor does need more air it can pull more, but you will have to rig up a second snorkel just to get airflow to it. Plus the heat shield is actually metal so it would eventually heat up more than the one on the Volant.

The Volant is down on torque to the other two but according to a few on the forum the power is more consistent. But it also makes less power so if the others if the focus sport loses power it makes less than the volant but the iceman makes a lot more torque plus it is also in a box so it wont lose much if any power.


A lot of people will say price is the determining factor but ..

Focusport is cheaper in general but its hard to get a sale on it so it stays at 200

Volant is really expensive but can be gotten for as low as 180

Icaman I havent seen cheaper than 200 but with the amount sold im sure there are some sales.



So ..... still where i started this sucks big ones .....




one ither question though which one of these can i put a larger maf and tb in sorry only info i couldnt find....

Can you direct me to the website or store that sells a Volant for $180
I haven't seen it any cheaper than $249.

http://www.newedgeperformance.com/airintakes.html

Also, from what people have posted on this website, the Iceman has it's HP/TQ
increases in the low end of the RPM's and the Volant has it's power in the high
RPM's. Maybe some can post a dyno chart that shows a Focus with an Iceman intake and one with a Volant intake to clarify the HP/TQ gains through the RPM power band.
I'll see if I can find the post discussing this issue.

Here an old post discussing the Volant and other intakes. It gets pretty heated when the guy at FocusSport gets in to the discussion.

I cant tell you where i foung the volant for that price then I would ruin it for everyone, who would ask the person for it afterwards, it is a hook-up and i don't rezlly know the person that well.


Yeah i got those power gains from a thread kickin has said, kickin you have the charts for the volant and iceman ?


Focus sports intake is good i am not gonna say other wise like is said before when more air was needed the ITG filter stepped up in their dyno charts on a stock car it made the above gains. On a modified it made even more because the modded engien needed more air.


And they have the dyno charts on their page to show how much and where the power was mad, unlike some other companies that say you will gain 18 hp from the thing but fails to mention you car should be putting out 180 to 200hp to see a gain that large.

I am saying this now becuase on that other thread that is linked I was on focussports ass about it just being a filter and couldnt (still can't see why just the filter costs so much) Im gonna maybe look for ITGs site or phone number to see how much their filters cost. Even though im sure focussport gets it way cheaper than we can because they buy in bulk.

Then you shouldn't say you can pick it up for 180 then, it was a hookup, which is oblivious to the fact that EVERYWHERE else it sells for 250-280. Iceman is 190-200, volant is 250-280, focussport i only see for 200. ebay, hook ups, used, trades are different than new from an authorized reseller.
