The later 2.5s are not that bad, but still nothing on the 2l turbos

This has made me have some thinking...

I saw this heat shield sheats at supercheap this morning and thought about putting some in. Iv made a template of where I think it should go.
Can someone tell me if this is good/ bad? What I should do if this isn't the trick?

Thanks

Looks fine. Just remember that it will need air flow from the outside of the car. Not including around the headlight as this air is warm.
And put gromits on the shield were something like rubber or cables pass through it :thumbsup:

Theres a pipe thingy coming up under the fuse box which has air straight from the front of the bumper. You reckon this will be enough?

Was it attached to the air box? if so its most likely a resisator(sp) ie isn't another box that helps tone down induction noises. You would need to check and move if it is.
About how bigs the hole 50mm plus is good

If you want to be true baller move the battery to the boot and have a massive Ali or stainless cold air box with CF lid :D

The pic below shows my CAI, filter is in the bumper and gets a good feed of air, next thing to do is to put a bellmouth duct right in front of the filter for even more air flow and colder temps!

Do you find the increase in pipe length abit laggy? honda do tend to get induction rather spot on. Tis a rather long run of pipe to absorb heat from the engine bay to.

Haha. nah thats a bit too hard out for me. Looks good though. I don't want to overcapitalise with my car.

I'll go check where that pipe leads too. If it is a resonator I might just put a pvc pipe comig from the bumper. You reckon thatd be good?

It was in there when I bought the car. Ultimately I'd go for a Mugen setup but I don't have a spare $1K lying around :(

Be good, but not important. It will stil be able to draw air in. Just giving it somewhere that isn't all warm will work fine.

Your right with that Ben, anything like mugen will be miles ahead of anything else IMO. If you want ideas on how to do mods look at what te likes of Mugen, Ralliart, Nismo, etc... all do with Aftermarket bits.

That lancer wagon on page 98 I think it was. Yah she don't go too hard but oh well, at least it's not as embarrassing to drive. Might get a pod filter just to make it sound a little bit nicer when I'm boosting it haha.

The pipe coming up was a resonater I found out. So iv just spent the afternoon taking that out and i manipulated another plastic pipe form the front bumper up to where the resonater was coming out. So now that I have a nice cool air supply I will buy some of that heat shield stuff to do tomorow :) Thanks for the help guys.

Just looking at your Amp power wire (I'm going to assume thats what it is?) I can't see a fuse inline anywhere? When you do your cold air box re-route the amp wire so you can screw a fuseholder on to the box itself, it looks blng and means the fuse is easily accessible.
