Quick update: Been driving around this whole weekend with the intakes and man what a blast! I am addicted to the top end power and the top end noise! It is sooooo lovely the sound! It pulls! Went out to dinner and desert tonight in the meatpacking in the city, and man i was getting thumbs up from everyone, alot of car guys around there with exotics. Popped the hood for some friends too, they were in love with the carbon fiber and attn to detail of the kit.
I wonder if drilling a hole into the stock airboxes would provide some extra intake noise? I have seen this done on other cars before...
It might provide extra intake noise, but you would also allow more heat, and would lose vacuum pressure the stock intake makes as a sealed system to get air to flow and respond quickly.
Of the few things I've done to my girl, these intakes are my favorite... hands down.
I had such a blast with them tonight out in the city for dinner and desert! see below above
Great writeup!! Much appreciated...Anyone notice their car running higher temps than before?
I think mine is but it could just be due to the summer heat.Thanks,
Thanks alot Bill! See Randys post, he gives a good explanation.. The oil temp on the dash is higher then earlier months just from the summer heat.. The intakes won't have no direct correlation to oil temps on the dash, unless the IAT were really high, but thats a long shot, and these intakes maintain stock like IAT's so you are clear from that..
Which temps are you referring to? I've been datalogging occasionally and the warm weather has made my IATs warmer than before, but that's expected. The datalogging Senad showed in his first post were from just a few days ago and he verified that under just about the same ambient temp, the Evolve intakes kept IATs at about the same as the stock intakes did, maybe slightly higher. But then once under load, the IATs dropped rapidly towards the ambient temp.
Good explanation Randy!
