Front mount intakes

Well..i dont know if anybody saw these but there suppose to be as sufficent as a CAI. My question is...whats the difference between this and just picking up an ebay intercooler. Isn't this just the same thing?


Arospeed "Cold Front Mount air intake" :



as of now there only for civics and accords i believe..but if they prove to be sufficent i believe there could be a DIY in order

Re: Front mount intakes

Why not just use a intercooler but instead of hooking up to a turbo hoot it up to a filter.
I wouldnt see a big increse in hp.

Re: Front mount intakes

I mean I've never even seen anything like that, but I'm sure you have a better chance of hydrolocking your motor b/c your intake is sitting right on the front of your car.

BUT also I could see a larger gain than a CAI, but not really too much more.

Re: Front mount intakes

well it prevents your motor from getting hydrolocked, but you lose power, or so I'm told. But I still feel its your best way to get power and be safe.

You live in NY I think I read in the other post? You should be good, cities are actually pretty good, they dont flood easily, and there are more spots for water to drain. Regardless I've had CAI's on my cars and never hydrolocked once. I live around suburban areas, and a few small cities.

Re: Front mount intakes

just get a short ram cai....that thing looks questionable, i know the plastic over the filter is necessary, but it probably blocks most of the air, and also, due to the length of the piping I could see it being more restrictive than a regular cai

Re: Front mount intakes

Agreed ^

get a not-so-short ram air intake

I have one that sits behind my headlights, and I'm pretty sure its safer than a CAI.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahah,
So true, inve never seen this done to a car yet, Thank god because if i do there getting ranked on so bad.




Id say get the intakes that most preludes have, SRAI (short ram air intake)
Not the one you get from advanced auto eithere lol. The bypass dose help, I had it on one of my cars and it did get staurated with water but idk once its fully soaked it it competely stops all water.

theoretically its actually harder for a turbo'd car to hydrolock than one with a CAI, cuz first the water has to fully penetrate the filter on the turbo (if there even is one), then if the temperate of the turbo doesn't INSTANTLY vaporize the water, it has to travel all the way thu the IC piping, thru the IC, thru more piping, then into the engine.

ding ding dingggggg. ricer. (so help me god if this turn's into a rice thread...)




o btw, thats not an actual intercooler if thats what your thinking. its simply an air filter made to LOOK like an IC. and even putting a real IC on a not turbo'd car is still a dumb idea cuz the whole concept is to reduce the IAT's that are drastically increased due to the turbo, so if you don't have a turbo, the IC aint gonna be cooling sh!t down.

But its supposed to look like one.

Here's a video from Nopi Nationals 07 I took.



He had an H22 in it, yet he kills the car with that.

Re: Front mount intakes

The front mount wasn't hooked to anything, it was just there to look "cool"
What else would you expect? That's worse than those people with a SRI and the extension from that filter to make a CAI too, not knowing air travels in the shortest, most efficient way so nothing is being sucked from the bottom filter.

Re: Front mount intakes

I think the point of the video one was that when your going fast all that air is scooped in the lil IC wanabe and directed in the general direction of the real intake to give it fresh air that might not be able to get into that area. How well this works is anyones guess but it won't hurt performance because you still have the normal filter.

That'd be stupid, of course I wouldn't put it past someone to do that.
That's what ram air scoops are for. He'd be better off taking out tha headlight and getting more air like that. Some people do that and aim the intake directly in the flow of air because supposedly going 60 mph is like having 1 psi of boost.

Re: Front mount intakes

About that. IF you have a look at the GP bikes, they use that principle to pressurise the airbox. But then again, a GP bike needs every little bit it can get, whereas in a car we have the option to boost 1psi and get the same result.
