Been trying to figure out a way to get RAM AIR to my blower. I took the radiator duct off on the driver side and now I can see my blower head unit right through my grill. It sits just to the right of the grill kinda offset a few inches. It will get fresh ambient air now and the sparrows won't be flying into my blower. Ought to be worth a little extra HP.

It's under this cover. Head Unit to right side in pic.

Cover removed. The duct is removed.

This mod works for anyone and even for all types of CAI and or stock air boxes with or without a filter.

Haha forgot to say that to get the duct out you simply remove one push pin located just to the left of the bolt shown in pic. I just used a hacksaw blade and cut the top portion of the duct off and pulled it out through the left side top of the pic shown. lol.

thats awesome... but I do have a question...


is that going to affect the temperatures of the engine any? Less air being forced through the raditor? Air always takes the path of least resistance, and those radiators are usually quite restrictive...

No noticeable change in water temp. At least at 130 mph. I don't notice any, lol. Seriously studys were done and removing one side is not harmfull in any way to water temps.

I have had all mine removed for over a year and have never had any issues with temps... However I don't have an ac condenser blocking my radiator either...
