Arrington has a nice design. They locate the IAT sensor away from the engine block and radiator fans which will reduce sensor heatsoak. To maximize the potential out of the new intake, you'll need to tune for WOT with a wideband.
The key to underhood intakes is to create separation between the radiator fan air and the air entering the filter so you don't suck in the 4-5 seconds of underhood, heated air. The temperature of plastic/metal near filter will affect the true temperature of air entering the filter. Also the material around the IAT sensor will affect the reading as it will absorb heat as well.
I haven't found the cover (or at least a specific one for the Arlington), but I did find out that the filter can be dyed a different color, or be left out completely for a $20 discount. Not sure which was I'll go, but either way I'm going with the Arrington CAI. I'll probably order it tommorrow once they open.
My issue with most so called cold air intakes is they pull more heated air from under the hood than a stock air box does and I just don't see the benefit in them for the money invested and the Arrington doesn't look like it would be any different. It looks kewl though.
I finally ordered my Magnuson blower and im wondering if it's possible to make my current K&N CAI setup work with the supercharger.
This is the style intake I have, do you think I could just cut the chrome tube down to size and make it work? Really don't wanna spend another $3-400 on an intake.
I need some advise, I have a 2013 Dodge Challenger r/t, I don’t have the money to buy a car back system, For my bday, my brother gave me Flowmaster super 44 mufflers but it’s 3.00”. My pipes are 2.50”, My question is,
Can I install these on it?
Would it do any damage to the car?
Would it slow...
