Changing the intake to a different design doesn't relate to this article at all. It has it's own design. Altering the original design of any one part is what is not a good idea..Hmm just ordered my Cobra Powerflo Intake, the other day. I wonder how this relates to the article in term of HP loss vs HP gains.
So after reading this article it has reinforce my conclusion that engineers and designers these days put far too much technology into every part on modern vehicles for me to go messing around with crap I have no idea about like I uses to back in the days of simplicity of the combustion engine.
Also I have decided to plug up the holes in my air box because I understand now that the rate of air flow through the resonating snorkel has changed and that's probobly why I can't reach 130 mph any more.
