Factory Intake Mod

well i had a homemade intake for a little while and ditched it cause seemed like i was loseing power...so during the removal i got to thinkin....what makes the facory intake so shitty?...well in this case...the stock air filter...lack of cold air commin in , the "Belows" intake tube and sadly the hemi hat....so i started tinkering...first i kept the factory airbox and dumped in a koolblue air filter..then i used an abs pipe 90 elbow and joined from the TB to the hole on the intake box...straighter , smoother intake tract....so then i got that done and noticed the little intake on the bottem of the air box....i pulled that square duct out and took my homemade cai apart and made sort of a ram air...i dont have factory foglights so i have a cold air intake duct go from my foglight hole to the bottom of my air box....all done and sealed.. went for a test drive....first mod that i actully noticed a differce...u dont get quite the growl of an atual cai but its noticeable..and when i came back i touched the top of the intake box and it was pretty cold si i geuss i could call it ram air intake anyway heres some pics

Good job. One of the better home made intakes ive seen. Wonder if you can hear it sucking in air from the bumber?

Very similar to my setup. I have a 4 inch semi rigid aluminum tube from my foglight hole to a cut down stock air horn on the stock air box. I also have an Airaid MIT to the throttle body.
