Welcome to the forums.

From what I understand, the colder the air, the more denser it is, the more power can be attained.

The only word of advice given fitting a cone filter as opposed to a directly ducted air feed would be that you may need to fabricate some form of heat shield around the cone itself to prevent heat soak.

Getting it all set-up on a rolling road will maximise your results, whilst highlighting any areas of fuelling mismatch.

All the best, I'm sure someone will be able to comment on their experiences.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
