Nice clean job!! Looks great!!
Hey guys, well it's been almost 2 weeks and here's my report. My MPG improved just a little since Novemeber when I first got the Nitro I averaged 14.8 - 15.4 MPG I filled up today and calculated 15.62 MPG (all my driving is city).Right on. Very nice first effort. It will be interesting to hear about any improvement you see in MPG. And if you do eliminate the box & run the tube all the way to the EFI, any improvement seen there too.
And to anyone who tries the next one, it'll be interesting to hear about any improvement seen in acceleration. I assume you could do this by timing what it takes to go 0 - 60 mph....... with the stock air cleaner & with the CAI.
So what diameter is the tubing you used?
Thanks, yours looks good also! An idea would be to color match (paint) the box.Looks good gABE! Thanks for the inside on the tube to the TB. I think I might just dress up the stock box on my install.
We have different sizes of pipe for custom installations on turbos, intercoolers, intakes, etc... Most of the pipe/tubes are pre made with various angles and sizes it's just a matter of getting the right angles and size then cutting and welding them to fit. In this case the tube is one piece with no welds.gABE,
did you make that tube or did you order it from some where & did it come predrilled for the sensor & breather. Or is it total homemade.
There is no MAF sensor, so that wasn't an issue. There is a temp (air flow) sensor and that sensor just plugs right into the new intake tube.Great looking modification! I was curious as to what about the MAF sensor that is located on the stock intake? How did you get around that?
