In my quest for the best ram air intake that will fit under the strut tower bar found in this thread http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/showthread.php?t=292624&highlight=intake I settled on the following pieces... WMS Velocity tube (ceramic coated) http://www.wmsracing.com/pgi-ProductSpec?WMS-VET96CCER $105 Accufab 80mm MAF Filter Adapter http://www.accufabracing.com/general.htm#MassAir $40 UPR 9" Conical air filter with the 4" inlet, NOT 3.5" http://www.uprproducts.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=755 $40 Everything went together perfectly and holy hell did it make a difference over the BBK CAI! I can definitely tell a big difference in throttle responce and a slight difference in power. With the BBK CAI there was this half second delay when I'd punch the throttle and when free revving the car it was most noticable, you would hear the sucking through a straw sound then there'd be this awkward pause before the motor jumped to live and started revving. Now as soon as I punch the throttle the motor just explodes and starts screaming towards redline, it makes double clutching soo much quicker. As far as a seat of the pants difference, I swear to god I'm not imagining it and I definitely do feel the car pulling a bit harder and revving quicker towards redline now as I bang through the gears. Before... During... After... I tried this with a Maximum Motorsports strut tower bar and it will not clear, it does clear the stock STB just fine. And NO, I'm not going to clean my dirty ass engine bay, to be honest, I like it like that! I'm not entering this dam thing in any beauty contests, I drive it hard and put it away wet, I have enough trouble keeping the outside of the dam thing half clean I don't have any time or patience for the inside Here it is with the STB back on... I almost forgot, I ran the car hard as hell today and then stopped and put my hand on the WMS velocity tube, it was warm but by no means hot and my jaw just dropped! If I limped the car around with the BBK intake then did the same test I'd burn the shit out of my hand, it was AWFUL.
