Homemade shortram kinda lol

I was wondering on the carb'd ludes the intake splits about 4 inches after it comes out of the carb I was wondering if I could just take the extra peice off of the intake the peice that runs it to behind the light and run it like a short ram intake? will it hurt anything?

Oh, nah it won't hurt anything, but it won't help none either (I don't think anyways). You may as well drive without it! I do on occasions.

This is what the lot of us do. . .


I came up with an idea to have two intake hoses going to a modified airbox. But it looks a bit hard to achieve. . .

85 I don't get at all what you did with yours lol and what about the wires conected to the intake? and I figured that it would get air to the motor faster resulting in better low end power and throttle response such as a short ram. but I guess not lol

that's known as the "airbox mod". people will cut the box so its open all around except the top.

i used cardboard... haha

there's only one hose you need to plug.

Re: Homemade shortram kinda lol

I did something like this on my old accord. I just cut it off from where it connects to the box and slapped a K&N on there. Me and my friends called it the ghetto intake.

Re: Homemade shortram kinda lol

apparently it feels less restricted. i think it's true. however the downside is that you get more hot air... it's worth a try though!

Re: Homemade shortram kinda lol

Some guy off a different forum did something similar on a 3rd gen. He ended up slapping the original box back on because of the hot air going in and it had a weaker pull.
