Why do you think Jackson Racing kept the Stock intake box and just used a drop in high flow panel filter with their supercharger?Do you know the drop in would be better performance? Any numbers? For both his system and the drop in?
I agree it looks kinda funny, but I feel that unless we get actual numbers, be it dyno, intake air temps, or even 0-60s we can't assume the power is gonna be better or worse. Just my opinionWhy do you think Jackson Racing kept the Stock intake box and just used a drop in high flow panel filter with their supercharger?
SR or CAI Intake on the SVT is a waste of money and give no performance benefit.
SR = worse than stock you are sucking in all that heat from the top of the engine bay
CAI = will only benefit top end but you lose a little low end
Any dork claiming it adds power is just trying to justify his/her "wasted" purchase of $200-$400, save that money and put it towards a mod that actually does something like STS or ORP / Flexpipe / Tune..... etc.
I know OP's car came like this but dude it looks like utter a$$ I would get the stock intake box + Snorkel and a K&N panel filter ASAP..... fix your lower grill and get rid of that shiny "Spittoon"
Oh, from the angle of the picture, it looks like they cut a hole in the chrome cover of the air filter and plumed the cold air duct into it. Regardless, it looks like it would still pull a lot of hot air from the engine compartment.Yes air comes in through the front of the circle to the filter
