New Intake Set-Up

Re-did the intake on my Procharger set-up last night. As you can see from this first pic, it was drawing in some really hot air being stuck behind the radiator and on top of the hot-side intercooler pipe. When I'd get done driving some times you couldn't even put your hand on the filter. Additionally, the mass air meter wasn't hooked up:






So after talking with David at Diesel Innovations, we decided to cut out a section of the radiator support and route the intake thru it and get the filter just behind the grill. I just used a grinder to cut out the section that needed to be removed and used some vinyl clip on trim on the edges (that we use on the lifeboats). To do it I also had to drop the a/c core down. I just made some brackets and attached the stock core supports to them, then dropped the power steering cooler down a little. While doing this I also noticed one of the trans cooler lines had a nice twist in it and was almost completely kinked. I don't really know how my trans never got hot. After that, I soldered some extensions onto the mass air meter and ran it along the piece behind the grill to the filter. I just cut out the mass air meter mount from the stock piece. I took a quick test drive last night but didn't get on it or anything. Cruising at 80mph I saw a 50-70deg drop in egt's, lol. So I'd say it's working. I'll have some better numbers today. Also, my trans was running about 15-20deg cooler with the untwisted line.

By the way, believe it or not I was able to find all the pieces for the intake (4" 60deg bend, 45deg bend, and 90deg coupling) at Pep Boys.
