This is exciting!
I like the fact that there's a way to install these without removing the shroud.
I think this is a great mod for those who want to keep their OEM
intake boxes. The front of the snorkels are at the front edge of the bumper which is supposed to be a high pressure area. The fact that the OEM boxes are sealed would mean that, at speed, these would create a "Ram Air" effect which should, theoretically, pressurized the airboxes. Add a set of K&N drop-in filters to increase the filter area and this might be an ideal set-up. Maybe even better than any of the current "cold air
intake" setups on the market?
What do you guys think?
I'd agree if someone made a smoothed out silicone/aluminum
intake pipe from the stock airbox to the turbos. Getting rid of that turbulent piece of piping with a good drop-in and the Velossa would likely be so close in performance to other
intakes while looking damn near stock, I'd imagine it would sell.
This is what I am think also, my K&N drop-ins just arrived. I think
intake wise I am set, now just the HFC primaries and complete exhaust and I will be done as far as mods go for sometime, well at least an intercooler and piping solution that I like becomes available and then I will be done. Well actually, not sure maybe I will go with
intake mani if someone makes one and then that will be it. Come to think of it, maybe replacement turbos aswell, but then for sure that will be it. Could be cams as well, will see
Red on white looks great!
Sorry about the background,
Straight i installed it
Went snorkling today:
Some pictures of alejandras car from SEMA.
Another LED setup!!!
Thanks for the pics Scott!
Still no dynos on these?
Hi Blitz, a dyno would likely not be the best tool to measure any performance gain for our ram air
intakes as they are designed to work best when the car is moving fast enough to see a measurable rise in dynamic pressure. Hope this helps.
Find a dyno that has a fan with variable speed to match wheel speed and you might get close to being able to measure something.
Wind tunnels for F1 teams would work!
I’m sure they have reasonable dyno rates.
Hmmm. I mean I get the difficulty in measuring them, but these could actually be worse than stock
intakes at a stand still for all we know right?
I don't mean to be difficult, but I was getting together all of the data for
intakes available right now to do a comparison thread, and I have no info on these at all from a performance standpoint.
1) luckily We don’t care how much HP our car has at idle.
2) using a basic understanding of how
intakes work show its next to impossible for these to make less power than the stock system.
3) this shouldn’t be compared to other
intakes that replace the filter.
Yea I actually misunderstood the point of these in my hasty scan. Also, this is a picture thread so I'm gonna do some more research in other threads before asking any more silly questions.
Thanks for developing such a fantastic mod, @VelossaTech!
