Carby cold air induction

Hi Everyone.

I have tried to do searches for this on the forum but cant find much on carby cold air induction and have some questions.
1.Has anyone tried this?
2.Is it worth it?
3.Would it be worth making an adaptor that would bolt onto the carby so you could use a EFI filter box and piping leading to the carby whyle removing the existing air cleaner?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


Tom

It is worth it, the colder the air you suck into the engine, the more power you will make. Some cars like the carby falcon XF 6cyl had cold air intake setups.

The car that i am looking at installing this in is a XF falcon carby. I just dont like the distance that the air has to travel to get into the air cleaner and think that if i designed a better forced setup i could possible also make the air swirl more. oh, and i dont like the huge air cleaner on the carby, looks poxy and gets hot.

Yeah, I know it doesn't look that good. I would think the best sort of setup would be a pipe leading to a pod style K&N or similar filter in the front bumper.

The Air Box in front of the Windsreen at the rear of the Bonnett makes a good Air Dam, as the air while driving swirls in that part.

You can run a pipe back to there from the Carby and make up a fitting to mount the pickup on the Firewall side of it.

"Fords R Tuff"

"Big Blocks" make them Tuffer.

You can beat Horsepower but you can't beat Cubic Inches.

Fords came out with Big Engine bays, Fill them with a "Big Block"
That's the way they should have been.

Re: Carby cold air induction

I changed my XF carby intake, I drilled the rivets out on the snorkle part of the air filter, and put a block off plate over the hole, I then cut a hole on the other side of the air filter, so that it was over the intake towards the front not the exhaust, and riveted it back on, to make it cooler for a start, I then put in a UNI Filter (could use whatever you want), I then used some standard plumbing fittings, and some AG pipe to get air beside the headlight, after a little removal of metal.
I also had made up a brass block to allow me still run the sensor that was in the intake manifold, but not pass any water through the manifold to keep it cooler.
I ran this setup for at least 4 years, and it was great, not a problem, car felt alot better to drive.
I dont think I have any pics of it, but I could draw some pics if you really want. I still have the brass block, I can post a pic of that.

PM me if you would like more details.

Re: Carby cold air induction

P.S. you can forward mount a POD filter as well, I did modify it to do that as well, I just used something to cover the AG pipes cause of the holes, you must run some sort of metal cage inside the original air filter box, rip apart an old filter works well, the metal cage is maintain fire should the car backfire up the carby.
