Cold Air Intake - Explained
How cold air intakes work. How do cold air intakes increase horsepower? What is the
relationship between air temperature and horsepower? This video
explains the theory behind cold air intakes.
Note: This video assumes pressure remains constant for all situations, and
that air density is strictly dependent on air temperature. This video also
assumes air is dry, containing 79% nitrogen and 21% oxygen.

Cutting White Wire on Saturn Ion to Fix Starting Issue
UPDATE 3/21/2014: My car is still working fine. I still have not had a
problem with it starting since I posted this video 5 years ago. Still on
the same battery. Thanks for all the comments!
This is me showing how I cut the passlock wire on my car. My car would not
start on damp, cold mornings, often taking 30 - 40 minutes to get it to
start. After reading several forums I found users who were doing this to
"fix" the problem. I thought I would tape this for anyone who was thinking
of doing the same but doesn't know anything about cars. Like me. :)
Note: I owe thanks to meron for the post at this link
http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1137a7/83 it is where I
first heard about this solution.
Update 10.6.2012: I added a switch, I believe it was this one
http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2062533 I installed
it with it in the off position, started the car, switched it to On while
the car was running and the service engine light went away. Car started
fine after that. I just shut it off again as it was cold one morning this
week and I had trouble getting the car started. Once I got it running,
turned it off and haven't had trouble starting it since. YMMV
The Truth of Air Intakes and My Opinion on Them!(READ DESCRIPTION)
This is mostly about filters ill do another video on the intake itself
later.Through testing on a Dyno multipul have found very
little power gain from cone filters or intake systems alike. Although K&N
have Dyno charts
saying it makes power I believe that the physics behind it makes it seem
like it can't but i believe it really helps on the instant torque of your
engine and it helps at high rpms. Also i think that results get better as
you let your ecu/pcm adjusts to this easy air flow. However set aside the
power gain most cone filters that contain cotton are washable and instead
of replacing a standard filter every 15,000 miles, which can cost from
$5-$40 you can buy a K&N for like $40-$100 and get the cleaning kit for $10
and wash it. Now people say that the oil that you put on the filter
eventually gets sucked into the engine and gets burned or coats parts and
sensors. I have never had a problem with this but if you do get some
electronics parts cleaner and clean the sensors. Also the scrubbing bubbles
and wd-40 cleaner way i would only use in a tough jam like you got it
plastered with mud or something. you really do need to use the kit and you
do anything i say at your own risk i hope you liked the video and my
opinion if you have anything to say comment below!
