Interesting and to me seems believable. I saw one vendor here reporting a 10 hp gain from just an air box modification which I find totally unbelievable.

Re: HW's opinion on Engine Air Intakes!!

I won't discount that because I don't know who or what but keep in mind dyno numbers are as honest as the operator.

Here at Hunterworks, I would rather not sell you something you thought would be a big gainer then after you got be let down. What you gonna do? Go tell the world Hunterworks sold you junk. We could not stay in business that long like that and besides that I am not built like that.

Re: HW's opinion on Engine Air Intakes!!

Just want to pass this opinion on something I saw. I saw some individual attached filters to go directly in the throttle body that gave some gain.

The gain seems small but keep this in mind, with exposed filters and right in the rear where all the dirt comes thru at from under the vehicle those filters will clog up fast and negate any perceived gains quickly.

Re: HW's opinion on Engine Air Intakes!!

Todd, in he theme of keeping dirt from entering my engine I used the Desert Molding Products rubber seals with stock A/F. I then ducted the intake tube up throught the bed behind the driver with a large K&N and outerwear similar to the BMP intake setup. Do you have any experience tuning this setup. I am interested in how if any this affected performance.

You have a stock filter and the k&n?

Why double filter, it provide a restriction.

I would filter a K&N though they let too much dirt thru.

I would remove the k&N it does not do anything

Totally agree; emphatically, actually. If you must add anything, then add an OuterWear pre-filter sock to your stock, OEM paper-micron filter. However, and with that said, ANY filter whatsoever added upstream of the throttle-body will, without exception, add some amount of flow-restriction, contrary to what so many vendors and aftermarket suppliers would have us all believe. Unfortunately, if you are going to operate in an off-road environment, YOU MUST HAVE AN ADEQUATE AIR-FILTER! The problem then becomes one of sorting through all the vendor bullshit, trying to find one that restricts air-flow the least, and for that, there is ONLY ONE definitive arbitrator; it's called a flow-bench. Any manufacturer or vendor that claims that their intake-system and/or filter will provide improved (over stock) air-flow, should be more-than-happy to provide flow-bench charts and data to support their claims, along with detailed particulars regarding the flow-bench set-up they used to attain those data. Anything less should be regarded as highly suspect, if not just outright erroneous bullshit! My two-bits........

Cheers

And to add to this, just cause some intake flows better does make it perform better.

Example: new intake flows 200 cfm!!! Who cares, my engine will only flow 100 so what is the extra 100 for???

Too many times vendors or manufacturers claim all this extra flow but if the engine can not digest it what good is it?
