EA-ED Cold Air

Ive done a search, looked around the forums and only found bits and pieces of people doing Cold air for their EA-ED's

Is everyone prepared to share their ideas, methods and photos within this post, so everyone with an EA-ED could benifit from it in the one place?

Im working on new induction now, I will let you know how it all goes.

Hope this kranks!

I am working on something at the moment as well. Something that is factory looking and requires no cutting of holes in any body panels. There seems to be some gear on the market but the cost for it is pathetic.

(Achem) SS INDUCTION (Achem)

A bit of 3" flexible piping should do well, just a bugger that clean air needs to come from the top of the box... Im thinking of running cold air (3") from the front nose, to a head sheilded enclosure with a pod filter.

Ill post pics when its up.

the best place for cold air is pretty much where the factory intake is. thats why it is there. if you run a cold air intake and mount it so it takes in air from the bottom of the bumper. it can create a vaccuum and give degraded performance. you need to put it where there are positive air pressure points on the car, in other terms, taking it from the front grill is an excellent place to get it.

im in the process of making my own box up, pretty much involves daming up most of the air that the grill lets in and forcing it into the throat of a T-Series snorkel that i got from ford for $30, then into a custom box with a pod filter in it.

Pretty simple, should work, ive done some research haha.

I think what he means is that the EA-ED airbox is the other way around to the EF-EL (i.e. the 'dirty' air goes into the top and the 'clean' air exits out of the bottom).

Ok, here are some pics of my cold air setup...

This is just a quick, cheap setup (i'm converting to an EF-EL manifold soon, so i didn't want to go to too much trouble) that didn't take much effort to make up, but it still makes a BIG difference! It was pretty cheap too - $120 for K&N panel filter, $30 for XG intake snorkel, $0 for an old piece of tin & $5 for a spare airbox lid from the wrecker (to cut the hole in, so i've still got a spare one).

I cut the hole in the airbox lid with a jigsaw and cut the tin myself. Then i just painted the tin (half black - so it can't be seen through the grill, and half white - to match the bodywork). It doesn't allow any water in due to the slight step up to the snorkel, but i've put rubber there so the air will not escape.
