Hi all,

I went for a surf recently and found this site;
http://www.working4u.com/ssinductions/

Of interest is their range of cold air induction conversions for the good old ford.
Have any of you good people come across them before?

The link you posted didn't work for me but trying a few obvious others I found this one.

http://www.ssinductions.com.au/ford.htm

From my own testing I am sceptical of the gains they claim with only changing the snorkel. I have found better results by having a second hole in the lower airbox feeding cold air.

I have some pictures of some different Ford snorkels as well as the modified airbox I'm using and will get them on a site as soon as I can scan them and figure out how to create a simple web page. :)

My findings are based on using a Dwyer Magnahelic differential pressure gauge measuring negative air pressure upstream of the snorkel/airbox. I got the incentive from a 5 part article Autospeed magazine ran some time ago. If anyone is interested in doing some testing on different intake setups I am happy to assist with my gauge/time.

I have done a lot of research, (reading - heaps of American sites for cold air mods mostly on Hondas but a bit on Mustangs) on these so called 'cold air intakes.' I'm also a bit sceptical with just changing the snorkel &/or its size so I've also done what you have Kon - dropped a hole through the bottom of the airbox, used a K&N Panel filter & run a 3inch flexible duct from a hole in my front spoiler through to the airbox. I don't have access to air measuring equipment & I'm not really interested in them any way as actually driving the car is the best measure of 'success' - pleased to say that the car feels stronger up to redline, runs smoother, smoother through gear changes(manual), as for economy haven't had it on long enough yet. All in all a worthwhile mod, quick (half an hours work - after a panel beater cut the hole for me) & cheap, less than $40 using proper race craft duct hosing ($18/foot - you'll need 2 to be safe.) I'm also in the middle of setting up a web site, but can email some info & images to anyone interested, just let us know where.

Yeah, I'd like to see some pics mate. And Kon, wouldn't mind seeing some stats once you've done some fiddling ;-)

I have priced the SSinduction set up after seeing similar at Summernats. They claim to be twice the size of standard though at around $400 for the kit (black plastic, more for colour code) I'm now very interested in your pics RAT.
