Re: herrod air injection unit

it has a unique core design to create a vortex air flow pattern,when you put your foot down,it disturbs the air with a tornado affect through into the air intake manifold
ive been driving her now none stop for about 3 hours and i dont wanna put her in the garage...wow what a thrill...

well done to rob and the boys, im happy very happy!!!

Re: herrod air injection unit

Just guessing???... But I presume it creates a cyclone effect, thus increases intake air flow? Where this works great on the Boss motor, Is utilising the diameter difference between throttle body & plenum chamber. (ATM standard throttle body is 76mm & plenum is 80mm) This is true for both 260 & 290
By the way, I also have one of these on my Pursuit and the throttle response IS improved markedly! I dynoed today 253.9kws which ain't TOO bad, just for exhaust, cold air PLUS one of these intake adaptors? I can't give before figure, as 1st time I've run her up.

greetings gino
glad to see you back on here and as always with something new & willing to share it with the rest of us

i have seen something very similar to this stateside & they had a lot of good things to say about them, the problem was that they only had them in 65mm & 70mm at the time so it was not worth it for me but now i guess we can all benifit from your test bed,

thanks gino & well done

regards
