Default Cai

Hey guys, most likely someone has thought about it but has anyone decided to go ahead and make a CAI ?

Just like a car, I was thinking running a CAI to the actual head, direct air flow into the fins of the head, most likely it will cool the head down right ?

you will get more airflow from having half the front window cut out
and the whole rear than having a CAI to the head as for a cai to the throat of the carby it may increase low down torque due to the increase in air speed into the carby but will hamper top end
this is why some manufacturers run a variable intake runner system which changes length to get the optimal torque curve

Cold Air Intake. We could put one on your Honda to give it extra 3 HP! But with gas prices, I don't think you'll want that. Your car no longer becomes fuel efficient.

My wife wouldn't permit me doing anything on that Civic. It's hers. My M3, in contrary, is still in the garage...

NICE! If you upgrade to M5, you have more room for R/C!
