Ram Air?

Here is a shot from underneath of the 4 inch semi-rigid aluminum dryer vent tube that runs from the fog light hole directly to the 90 degree elbow. I have a 4 inch plastic drain tube coupler duct taped (actually it's Gorilla tape) to the plastic insert of the fog light hole. The 4 inch tube fits nice and snug on it. And the beauty of it is that it is all easily removed and costs maybe $20. I have another uncut stock air horn I can put in the air box.

Looking in the front of the tube. It may not look like the alignment is all that good, but it is.

WOW. Innovative! I was gunna buy a 3" intercooler tubing kit on ebay. It comes with all kinds of bends and and couplings. I was just gunna route mine directly from the throttle body to the fog light hole. Just put a filter at the end of that set up right behind the hole.

Where I got the inspiration for my setup was from the 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Super Stock cars. They had quad headlights with the inboard lights removed and twin intake snorkels. I go back a long time!

OOHHH that's wicked! My friend tries to talk me into turboing my 59 Pontiac and running the intake on the turbo like that thunderbolt is.

This is EXACTLY the kind of intake system I am working on right now. It's still in the idea faze, but I think I have a really good plan for the plenum. Trying to make it so it can fit under a stock hood, and have air tight dual ram air via the foglights. I tried drawing up the plenum last night, but got to excited to sit still and take the time to finish it, lol.

I guess I can get away with it since I don't use my truck daily. Although, I'm trying to design it where the rain won't hurt it. I want it setup so any street use daily driver can use it.

Yet it WILL be setup that if you cover up yer fog light holes (say you submerge it in mud or water), then it will suck it up however it does it. Foglights will be the only intake source. Once more, the design I have in my head will also have a "vaccum line" size hole with a tube draining any water that would get into the plenum from rain.

If I can keep my computer running at home, I will try and draw it up on Paintshop or somethin'.

I did a long write up on Ram Air intakes a long time ago, included was the SRT10 Hood and the one I had on my truck from Ramair.com and at the end of the day the AFE stage 2 was the best.
I read an article on the SRT10 site about their hoods and they did a very detailed test and as Freeze pointed out the hood is just for looks no benefit of any real ram air. Now the article I read said that the best true ram air was from at the BOTTOM of any vehicle where the air is not only cooler but has less body moulding restrictions. Now at the track what makes the AFE stage 2 so good is its filter location, right behind the passenger headlight and you can remove your headlight for track days and TA DAH, straight on, non restrictive fresh air. I had the AFE Stage 2 and bought an Amsoil filter that had the opening at the end of the filter and found a fitting and tube that came off off that that ran down to the fog light hole and it work great. Byrd remembers what I did here is that post
