/ April 08
decided to address some "low cost" measures to help in getting every % from my engine.
I blocked the "heat riser / crossover" on
my intake and fitted a clutch fan which the Mopar engine book says is good for a 5 HP gain.
The main thing Ive noticed is that the engine runs
50% cooler than prior to this change.
I have also fitted a Ram Air box which houses
a 3" K&N filter .
This brand air box is pretty cheap
compared to some of the competition (The Canadian company that markets "Ram Air" is significantly more costly - and
there's little differene between this unit and theirs).
My unit can be ordered through me if
anyones interested in making the same mods.
I used household air-con ducting -
and a couple of 90mm plastic gutter elbows and box sections (all from Bunnings) seated below the
stone tray provide a direct source of cold air.
