Read $20 Cold Air Intake.

Are you looking for a cheap performance mod for your falcon? Cold air induction would be a good start. It only costs around $20 all up and gives you a decent amount of power gain. I have also noticed that I use less fuel when my cold air induction is hooked up.

Alot of people have asked me about cold air induction and how to do it and for pictures, now that I have recently bought a digital camera I can take pictures.. lol

I hope you's find this article usefull..

Things you'll need:
- a hole drill.
- about 6metres of 2inch piping (reason im saying two inch is because there isnt much room to push a bigger 4inch pipe down beside your motor..this is the reason for me running two 2inch pipes.)
- a few cable ties.
- a stanley knife.

What I done was removed my airbox, ran the two seperate peices of pipe down beside my motor and tucked them under the front bar and ran them to my left hand side vent. I then trimmed the pipes to size and cable tied them together. Then I drilled two 2inch holes in the main part of my airbox just underneth were the filter sits, on the left hand side of the opening for the snorkel. Then I put my airbox back in, I then pushed my two peices of pipe through the holes I drilled (which are a tight fit, which is good). Then I put my filter in and wa-la, I had cold air induction..

I dont think that ive missed anything, but if i have.. let me know

Rob.

See with the EF's you can. Those spotty holes in the front bar are perfect for that. Now try setting up a cold air intake for an EA-ED! ArrrgggHHHH!!!

I have thought about several ideas like this for my EA, but it cant be done as easily, like SB3 said.
Also, one thing I would be wary of with your setup, is that your air is coming into the airbox UNDER the filter, so the air isnt being filtered. You could be sucking in all sorts of crap and rubbish, NOT a good thing! (well, that is if the airbox setup is similar to the EA, my apologies if it is opposite, as in, the air is sucked from above the filter)
Just a thought.

Excuse me if I'm wrong but wouldn't this be a bit risky?, if it's going in under the filter you may as well not have the filter there as it's not going to "filter" anything. Won't you get lots of shit in there???? Couldn't you do it above the filter?.
I'm probably wrong but no harm in asking.
Cheers

The way the filter box is setup, is the air from the snorkle comes from underneath, through the filter, and out the top into the motor. So its opposite to the EA.

edit: Beat me to it :s2:
