How to Customize a Universal Cold Air Intake Filter System - Pep Boys
Spectre Performance demonstrates in this video how to customize a universal
cold air intake kit using parts you can find at your local neighborhood Pep
Boys. Using universal parts you can simply assemble them in any fashion to
create the look you want to make.
First we take off the existing air cleaner and install a single 4 inch
plenum. Lay the plenum where your air filter was and put it in any
direction you like. Screw on the plenum with the existing air filter nut or
a custom nut of your choice. You will need couplers that will connect the
different intake tubes together that can be turned to mold within your
engine compartment. Simply slide on the coupler to the plenum and fit
accordingly. Secure the clamp on the coupler to the ridge inside and then
you can add additional tubing for the length you desire. Remember not to
tighten the clamps too hard, because you may need to move your tubing
around until you create a final fit. Rotate and adjust as needed. Attach
your air filter to the end of the tubing. You can find inserts that go
into the filter to accommodate a 3 or 3.5 inch tube. Once you have the
final placement in place, be sure then to go back and tighten all of the
clamps to hold the filter system securely in place.
The advantages to having a custom air intake filter system located in the
front of your engine is that you can take advantage of the air stream and
receive colder air going into the intake system instead of the hot air that
your standard filter was providing. Customizing your cold air intake
system is pretty simple once you know a few simple tricks. Not only will
your new custom air intake system look great, but it will increase your
engine's overall performance.

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!

Intake Manifold - Explained
What is an intake manifold? How do intake manifolds work? What is a
performance intake manifold? This video features a Skunk2 Pro series intake
manifold courtesy of Redline360.com. Intake manifolds are the connection
between the throttle body and the cylinder head. They also serve as a hub
for connections like the IAT sensor, the EVAP purge valve, the fuel rail,
the breather hose, and a vacuum connection for power brakes.

Cleaning Throttle Body, Intake Manifold & Piston Crowns
The engine is the heart of your vehicle, and like our hearts they work best
if kept in the best possible condition. Over time sludge, carbon deposits,
gum and varnish build up inside the engine and reduce the running
efficiency. Nulons' Foaming Intake Cleaner cleans the engine from the
inside without the need for a major dismantling.

Spectre Short Ram Intake
I just recently installed a short ram intake in my 2000 honda accord EX. It
was cheap at autozone (about $40 for the intake, $20 for the filter, and i
bought an intake elbow to add on there at the end for about $10). It's not
very loud but i did notice a quicker throttle response and only a slight
increase in fuel economy but not much. I know its not much but its a start,
and its better than nothing especially since being in college i dont have a
whole lot of money .
2002 Dodge durango Super 44 flowmaster and Cold air intake
My 2002 dodge durango with a flowmaster super 44 muffler and a 3.5x18 inch
stainless steel bullett Exhaust tip.
Still the same as the other Exhaust
vid but now with a cold air intake I bought from oreily auto parts. Its the
Spectre build it yourself filter and tubing. I'm told all cold air intakes
work the same so i put this one together for about 80 bucks! Over all i'd
say it is a tiny bit louder but not enough to make a fuss about.
