Pictures?

I decided to join the cool kids and bought a '95 that already had a lot of worthwhile mods to dedicate to my track endeavors. Right now it has a Jackson Racing intake on it. That's supposed to be a good intake for low temps, but it is definitely on the short size vis-a-vis tuned length. It also forces the air through a bunch of turns. And, frankly, it makes some maintenance tasks a chore and just doesn't look "race-spec."

Planning to build up some experimental intakes using SiliconeIntake parts and doing a VD comparison. Would like to see how you're pulling from the bumper.

Already did. Just curious as to how Track is pulling from the bumper/front of radiator.

Not nit-picking, but pretty sure Emilio's thread says 21". Just want to clarify incase anyone is reading this thread for info.
EDIT: Dug the thread up, around the dyno post.

Here is what I got. Its basically 2 90* elbows and two straight sections:

Test Fit


Throttle body -> 90* elbow -> MAF -> aluminum tube -> 90* elbow -> short aluminum tube -> filter. Drill a hole post MAF for the IAT. delete the MAF and use a longer aluminum tube if you have a MS3 and only use an IAT sensor.


Passenger side wheel, comes out of the belly pan and into the wheel cover area. I put two pieces of duct tape together and attached them to the wheel well liner to prevent rocks and stuff from getting kicked into the intake.


Here is the view from the fog light hole.


Here is a view from inside the fog light hole. Note the metal brace I am using to support the intake. It attaches to the same bolt that the belly pan goes to.

That's neat, kinda like the AEM intake my friend had on his Integra. He parked the car in an extra low ditch filled with water and hydrolocked the motor. Just a warning, because sometimes NOTRACECAR.

I'd still rock that for trackdays

Cool (pun intended). Very straightforward.

I had similar concerns when I set out to make this intake. I definitely asked around a lot about it, but the general consensus said you don't have to worry about it unless your car is in standing water (or maybe if you put a hose up to it?).


Your friend's experience is just...silly. I am not sure if he is stupid, or this was one deceptive ditch...Rest assured, my car doesn't get started in any ditches.

While my car is a track only car now, I did daily this intake for the past 2-ish years. I have driven through some heavy rains without problem. At least, I haven't noticed anything. I guess time will tell if I end up with bent valves or some such.
