    Which member was that? Did they have all the mods I do? Can't imagine I'd ever have any issues with A/F' s considering I've got a URD fuel pump, 668cc primaries, 7th inj, X-1 and a FP mod

    Because the hood scoop doesn't see any ram air, in fact the air passes right over top the scoop. With the Volant scoop ur getting ram air from the grill area and it actually works. No reinventing the wheel here, just getting the coldest/most dense air possible for the blower

    I used a 3 1/4" whole saw:top:

    it all makes a lot of sense. they both draw air from the same location and the heat shield on the k&n isn't much worse than the afe air box cause the hood of the truck sits tight to the top of the k&n heat shield. i also prefer the "naked" look of the k&n intake over the afe. also anyone bashing the k&n filter itself is plain stupid! there have been tests done for filtration and the k&n filter was better than most! there was one specific dry filter that was slightly better. you just have to clean them every once and a while and be careful not to over oil them

    ^^^really? It's already been proven that while K&N's let more air thru they also let more dust thru and don't start filtering until the filter itself gets dirty.

    there was a test done between k&n filters and all of the other leading filters and out of 4 or 5 it was the second best filter. i can't remember the exact filter that beat it but it was a dry filter. i'll try to find the video

    I've got a first Gen TRD intake and a ScanGaugeII. My intake temps are always at or within a couple degrees of ambient. That's when i am moving.

    John, are you seeing way higher temps from the blower compressing the air? That's always been my understanding of it. Hence, intercoolers, air scoops and the like. I can see why you would add this. And it kinda looks cool...

    TRD guys get our IAT reading pre rotor, so it's the uncompressed temps.

    just curious if there was enough air rushing in from the grill to affect anything other than temps

    Of course there is, besides the blower is sucking in the air. Remember I still have the fender well opening on the air box itself

    Hoses? Nope it's 2 1/2" PVC union which measures 3 1/4" outside. Used a 3 1/4" hole saw and that union fit very tight in the hole.
