The thing I don't like about these kinds of videos, no not because they are reposts, but because I can't tell if they are serious or not. Surely this stupid ************ doesn't actually think that is a good idea he has. Then again I know there are a lot of people this stupid, so it's also possible. Either way, I hope he wrecks it when he goes for a test drive.

I was hoping as soon as the car started the filter would have collapsed and been eaten by the car. POOF!

You jest, but I saw that happen to a Ford turbodiesel engine w/ a Fram air filter, which was backed by a thin wire mesh. Needless to say, the compressor wheel did not benefit from the experience.

(Also, embedding fail. Fixed that for you.)

I imagine he didn't take it for a test drive yet as I imagine it doesn't run too well with that MAF fail going on.

I was just going to say it! lol

I think he's dead serious honestly. Just because he knows what an intake manifold is doesn't mean he's an actual enthusiast making a funny video. He's some back country **** in Canada that makes home made air cleaners for ford tempos.

We should try and see if he'll start making them for turbo miatas. Tell him there's a big market for these and he could profit big time.

I had a 93 topaz. That car has a massive engine, that makes absolutely no power what-so-ever. Its a shitty 4 cylinder boat.
