Very interesting have any pics of this setup... is the aluminum box completely enclosed?

Thanks

Yeah but having one place where people chooses to respond is better than drugding through every thread looking for sigantures and not everyone has a signature.

Thank for joining the pole. (pun intended) ;)

you can kind of see it here:



It's the Weapon R cold air box, modified to fit correctly (cause Weapon R's products suck), then sealed with foam to the surrounding edges. What I did for the cold air part is got one of these:

Spectre Aluminum Air Duct Mounting Plate

Drilled a hole like you would for IC piping and mounted it with some of that foam tape in between it and the chassis, then connected that to a bell mouth I mounted in the fog light hole.

Sounds Ideal, this is the example Mods should set. Though I am really disapointed that you don't have the ebay halo head lights, the stick on hood scoop and the crane kick SUPER wing. What I am realy curious about is how you got the 94 MR2 tubo muffler to fit. Let me guess you no longer have a spare tire.

Thank you for your support,

NO ! :cool:

I used a 18" x 3" resonator and vortex 3" muffler. It actually sounds great under WOT but the daily driving 2500 to 3000 rpms resonance is killing me. I bought a Magnaflow 12259 to replace the vortex hoping to quiet it down a little. Think it will do the trick?
