:lol: Are you for real dude! :roll: That wont work either. Just do it properly, go buy a pod and stick it where it can suck in cold air easily. E.G towards the front of the car, mabe behind the headlight backing or something. :wink:

How the F*** are you gonna fit an eski under your hood dude? :shock:

OK what about I get one of those old styrofoam eskies and fill it with party ice, then run the vacuum cleaner hose (my intake duct) into the side of the esky. Obviously I'd put a bit of chicken wire over it so it wouldn't suck in any ice. Would this give me more power as the air would be very cold? It would also be great as I could leave my cans of Woody in there too.


HAHAHA LOL!!! :lol: :cry:

And we thought because the air is already warm behind the radiator, the car should go even faster cos the engine wont have to warm it up.

...i guess all those places selling cold air intake kits and so on must just have been wrong all along.

this is the problem with the car seen these days.
to many people think a mild work over is a set of plugs leads and an air filter.


a mild work over is more along the lines of extractors full exhaust, and new cam. and intake.

Yeah my mate made some ducting for me out of old VB cans, duct tape and mums old vacuum cleaner hose. Made it go much faster, because we put the pod filter behind the radiator fan so we thought it might be like a poor mans supercharger. You know, like forced induction. And we thought because the air is already warm behind the radiator, the car should go even faster cos the engine wont have to warm it up.

Hey Hey Hey. My mums vacuum cleaner was rated at 650 Cubic feet a minute. So the hose should be more than adequate for an EA.

Oh and can anybody tell me what 3.2 on the Id plate on the car means?

yeh man i with you. this is some funny s**t. nearly as good as bazza.

but i rekon with that setup u'll see at least a 14. if you know how to change gears u might get a 13.9, me mate dave did anyway, hes a good driver.

but with the xtra wieght of the esky it might hold u back, make sure u get one of those lightwieght carbonfibre ones. there a bit more expenisive but its worth the xtra dosh.
