6637 mod intake box

Ok so my dad owns a sheetmetal shop. I made myself a intake "box" or pan. The ne on my truck is made of scraps. But I'm working one up to possibly produce and sell. I'll post pics later today. But I noticed a 75ish drop in egts when cruising at 70mph. It fits under the battery. Mounted under my hacked up battery box. If I did produce these it would be $50ish +shipping. Painted ready to install. Would anyone be interested? So far I haven't found any others on the market. I've searched quite a bit.

Re: 6637 mod intake box

The problem with heat shields and routing air through intake boxes is that whenever you direct air flow, you increase restriction. Low restriction is the goal, so using a filter that has the ability to flow large masses of air and then enclosing it in a box yields very poor results. Heat shields do literally nothing. Air flow under the hood is dynamic and not static. It is moving all the time. Hot air will move right around a heat shield at the same temperature and be ingested and the only thing you have caused is turbulence.

Re: 6637 mod intake box

I'm no expert on vehicle air flow. All I can say is I did notice a difference in egts and it does protect my air filter from all the muddy water that gets all over my engine compartment while traveling dirt back roads.

Re: 6637 mod intake box

Here are the pics. Like.I said this is a poor example of what I would produce. This was just to test the concept. I'm thinking of trimming the wall that faces the cab to suck air from that side. And to obswiz. With that ideal wouldn't a zoodad mod also cause turbulence? Brining air in from a "new" direction.
