Here's a pic of the current set up, FWIW


I rerouted the hot side a little by cutting the U pipe, adding in a 7.5" straight pipe, and cut 4" off the L pipe. I didn't have time to spray the straight pipe, so it's silver and everything else is black.

The orange thing over the unpainted pipe (below the filter) is a hose insulator that I found laying around. I cut a small section of it and clamped it to the hot pipe that's directly under the airfilter.

Yes, I know the breather isn't hooked up properly. This is temporary only.

I'll be using Fujita if that helps anyone. It's ~$35. It's a 4" air filter - to fit over the Sc-50s

(My build thread will come soon)

Ah yeah, I forgot that the charge piping would be in the way if you are not clocked. I guess mine has been that way ever since I intercooled it. :gay:

When I was at the dyno, I stuck my hand around the filter and felt around during both power runs and steady state. I was amazed at how much cooler the air just behind the headlamp bucket is than the air next to the motor where my filter is.

i'm going on vacation. I dont have time to start projects!!

Seriously tho, I'd fix it now but my PS rez is in the way. I need 4" angled turbo hose and a short piece of pipe and THEN we'll deal with it. Oh and some aluminum to make a cold air box.
