looking at replacing all piping from manifold to air filter, wanting to go stainless, ummm wondering if the piping should be the same size as the manifold the whole way through or can it be abit larger.... would i lose any pressure making it larger????, umm also was thinking having another stainless pipe welded to the one coming from the manifold goin over the engine sitting down near the alternator to a pod filter so its dual air intake, is that over doing it in anyway, am i going to loose any power by having two or should i just stick with the one???

suggestions on the topic anyone???

cheers

cheers mate thats everything i needed, also im thinking of cutting a hole in the piping coming from the manifold running another pipe over the engine bay down near the alternator with a pod filter on the end, but i have also seen alot of fords with the air box taken out, pod filter sitting behind the headlight with headsheilding around it, can someone enlighten me on which would be the better option.

cheeeeeers

keep the air intake on the cool side of the engine.

there isnt much to be gained in the B series intake, it already flows well enough for any NA application, just put in a new panel filter and XR6T snorkel... and it wont be a restriction
