Cold Air Intake/Air Filter

I wanna make some mild mods to my car, the above seems like a good place to start. I know for the I6 you go for an AU XR8 intake, same thing goes for the older 8's aswell? im also thinking K&N Panel filter.
what have some of you guys done?

Re: Cold Air Intake/Air Filter

ahhhh fair enough
well ive got an ef ghia cold air intake,
1)cut a whole from under the airbox and ran a pip to the bottom of the front grille
2)set of 4.11's diff gears(huge power differnce)
3) AU XR8 snorkal
4) 3" stanless stell pipe from the airbox to the throttle body

belive it or not all these mods have made a bid increase in power

Re: Cold Air Intake/Air Filter

The AU XR8 Snorkle does not fit onto the E-series V8's without some modification to clear the power steering pulley. You can get an EL XR8 snorkle which fit straight on and are as good as the AU ones but don't have the tickford wings. K&N filter is also a good idea as well, but together these mods will probably only give you 2-3rwkw but throttle response will feel better. First major mod you want on the V8's is to get some extractors and then a good 2 1/2" exhaust system and larger cats. After that it would probably be roller rockers, intake swaps, heads etc but that gets expensive. Diff gears will also be a big improvement but I wouldn't go as far as 4.11's on a street driven car, something like 3.73's would be more practicle IMO.

Re: Cold Air Intake/Air Filter

how much will the entire exhaust system cost to get done from extractors/headers to cat and back.
also what are some of the patterns available or is is just 4-1?

Most go with the Tri-Y design which gives a lot more down low power compared with 4-1's while still flowing quite well up high. Pacemakers tend to be the most commonly used and are fairly good quality and fitment. Probably look at around $500 for the extractors, around $300 for a mild steel 2 1/2" exhaust system and about $200ea for high flow cats.

that sounds good, low down power is what im after, dont plan to have engine revvin its tits off just to get some power. how much are you looking at for some stainless steel and is there much power gain to be had for paying the extra$$$?
anyone got some pics of the Tri-Y design?
