EF owners & Cold air induction

well i have finally completed everything to do with my indcution, i will never touch it again! yippie :s3

the cold air from bumper is complete
the k&n filter is installed
and i have cut the bell mouth off, and chopped back about 1inch of the rubber (above filter going into piping to T.B.) and opened that up to be a bellmouth also. so instead of a small bellmouth, its a massive one now.

tommorow im going on a cruise, and mates will have a digi cam, so i will take as many pics as i am allowed to show everyone how i did it, and what it looks like.

its been a long but gradual effort, but once its all together it should work a treat, rememeber more air in, car go quicker :s3

so mond, tues i should have the pics in my email, and i will post them then, and everyone can see how you get around the ABS unit and you wont have a big headache about it, hehehe

well till then, keep pondering

just been driving it, certainly has more low down grunt now. and it makes a bit of a racket when full throttle, just induction sucking noise, but rather loud, hehe.

now to make it work properly, all i need is exhaust fitted to 'exhale' the new found induction, and 6 new injectors, that actually work... current ones are a bit on the broken side :(

modified airbox lid intake. can see its been cut back about an inch, bigger bellmouth intake. cut rubber with scalpel blade, dodgy but works a treat

South,

Congrates on the handy work you done on for the intake. Looks like theres definitly induction roar present.

Looks like i'll have to starting thinking about how to do mine.

VEEEEEERY interesting!

Thanks for your input on this South, if you'll pardon the pun.....

From what I can gather from your pics and descriptions, you are running the tube to the main intake opening under the bumper, not the driving light ducts? Cutting through the curved panel that ducts air up to the radiator?

I was interested to see the inside of your airbox lid. Mine has a GEORGEOUS turned aluminium bell in there, almost flush up to the wall close to the MAF. I see yours has a long intake tube, mine must be a EF1 feature. It looks expensive, Ford must have put in plastic ones later to cut costs!

Next important question: does anyone think that a big duct setup like this will force TOO much air into the intake, causing the car to run lean? Or will the stock MAF be able to cope with it and adjust the mixtures accordingly? I'm just a little worried that out on the highway it will run too lean!

Mike

im not too sure about your setup there V8 ghia, but being yours is an 8, and mines a 6, thats prolly the difference, mines an EF1 Fairmont also.

i dont have a MAF such as the 8 does, its attached onto the t.b. itself.

as for the ducting going to where the radiator is, nope, its going thru the body (drilled 3" hole thru it) and running to the openings where the fairlane lights go. so its getting a full cold air setup. the old stock cold air is also still connected to the airbox. more air the better i say, plus makes it easier than blocking off that hole.

and its next to impossible to feed the air thru that lil section near the radiator. something is in the way, people have talked about it b4, but i forget what it is, some canister or some sort. aircon? someone else is bound to know..

and a big bell such as you have would make a mighty loud racket! mines a lot louder now than it was b4, not that thats a big thing or anything... does anyone else have this same aluminium mouth on there I6, if so, think i might invest in one....

toodles
