clean your air filter more often, cause that not only allows more air, but more dirt

it is not a good mod if you have a ws6. just remove your baffles and you will get a better increase. the FRA mod we did to my ws6 and we logged several differant conditions, we found that at idle the inlet air temps were 125-130* !!! :eek:

and the were routinely 15-20* hotter then normal at any other rpm and speed... so on the ws6(that is already getting more air because of the raised air box) i believe it hurts performance, not helps...

which baffles are you talking about? I did the bellows,I can see the value in that mod.
I had the same thought about cuting the air box and the plastic under it,it would have to bring the temp up.

Got to be the baffles in the hood scoupe........what about driving in the rain,dont the baffles deflect the water down so it drains out?

if you drive you car in incliment weather, then only cut out one of the hood scoop baffles, my ws6 never comes off the ET drags, so if it rained while i was driving it, water getting in the motor would be the LEAST of my worrys :lol:
