Intake Resonator

Why is there a tube that looks like something a dog would leave behind on the intake pipe of EB - AU V8s.
Ford call this a intake resonator and i agree I have taken this many times hoping to see a difference in performance and sure enough I do but a very negative gain and a roar coming from the front of my car. I have tryed changing the ignition timing to see if the car will go better if not return to the way it was without the tube but no success..I have no doubt in my mind that with a proper tune either with a piggyback or aftermarket computer this tube can be
removed, is this what Ford has done with the AUIII TS50 cause it doesnt have this resonator.

Re: Intake Resonator

There is no performance gain by removing it, actualy if anything it's the reverse. The resonator is there to firstly quieten down the induction roar, and secondly the increased volume between the TB and the MAF is suppose to help throttle response (only very slightly I imagine).

Re: Intake Resonator

I was told that it stops the air box from blowing to bits when the engine backfires.

Re: Intake Resonator

Ive only heard of it being used to quiten down the intake (who wants that?) and also to provide a 'buffer' of air in the event you snap open the TB, apparantley it will vent from the resonator as there can be resistance from the snorke/box/filter. Have heard of people experimenting with size and shape to some benefit, spose it'd be alright if you had free dyno access. Alas, my intake and resonator are long gone...

Re: Intake Resonator

a little fact, EB1 V8's dont have the pipe, just a straight piece of rubber pipe from the maf to throttle body

Re: Intake Resonator

Ive removed the whole rubber setup and run a 3" steel pipe, the throttle response is much better than the ford setup...

So do you have this resonator still on your car?

Re: Intake Resonator

Yup, to prevent damage from backfires.. But we know that never happens anyway!! Mine has a nice big welsh plug in its spot.

GOOD ON YOU LATER!

Does your car run better if not the same without this "poo tube".
