    HaveBlue on the other hand, hasn't been online in a couple weeks+. I'm working on a high-schooler, part-time job budget, so in order to get that Volant I plan on getting, I need to sell that K&N kit that I sent in for the test; so I'm kind of stuck in a jam. I'm sure you understand my concern that it's been somewhere for more than a month and that I haven't been able to get in contact with either of them. Does anybody know any way I can get in contact with him or find his phone #?
    JT did reply. He has the extra box but needs a nudge to get him moving He hasn't drilled the box yet. Send him a PM. I'm sure he will answer.

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    Does anyone know when odysseus is going to run his dyno? I also have the 3.2 and have been wondering what intake to get.

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    I've simply got to make the time. The closest dyno that I've found is about 90 miles away. I travel for business 3 days a week, and sail (race) on the weekends. I'll need to take a half day off during the week to get there.

    The car is ready and I've got the Volant on, now. I've got my old TonyA modified airbox ready to slip back in, and a stock filter to exhange (with a temprorary blockoff plate for the front hole), for the TonyA and base runs.

    I have the Borla on, since I didn't want to wait any longer, but at least I'll get a comparison of intakes. I'll likely put my stock 17" wheels and tires on for the dyno run, since they're 9 lbs (each) lighter than the 18" Milli Miglia's.

    Diane (F1Fanz) sold her CTS and is selling her 3.2L volant on EBay as we speak, for those interested. Bidding ends tomorrow morning, and it's currently under $50.

    DDS, the TonyA mod is very cheap ($40 for a filter) and for only an hour or so of drilling, you'll have a much higher flowing intake than stock. It's much cheaper than the $250 Volant. It will be interesting to see the HP differences, but I expect they'll be minimal (within a few HP of each other).

    Ody I think you're Our hope as the "Great Air Intake Challenge" seems to be petering out.

    Didn't you find a dyno that ricers use that was closer?

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    I found one about 5 miles from my house, but they didn't answer emails or phone calls. So I went to drop by, only to find out they're out of business.

    So, it looks like the dyno in Richmond will be my next bet. I'm also looking into one of those PC based ODB-II scanners that has a virtual dyno feature that calculates HP and torque based on sensor data on the ODB-II port. It basically uses RPM, car speed, and you input Cd, car weight, air temp, etc. Then accelerate to redline. The problem is, fourth gear (1.0:1) is usually the best, but you'd be doing about 145mph at redline! Looks like a cool toy, anyhow.

    Bah, minor problem. I'll look forward to hearing your results.

    On the topic of the "TonyA mod" is there a "how-to" posted somewhere? I'm too busy/lazy to look for it right now.

    Although TonyA did the research and pioneered the Mod, RobertCTS did a great job writing it all up. PM him, and I'm sure he'd love to email the writeup to you.

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    Hi All, I've been traveling for work. Still no TonyA box yet. I have to go to DC late this week. I''l schedule the dyno test for the 7th. If the TonyA is here great. If not I'll run stock/volante/KN comparison and then get Krank's kit back to him.

    Re: The Great Air Intake Challenge

    Thanks guys, actually I overcame my laziness yesterday after posting and looked up the mod on my own. Horray for boring as heck classes! I'll look forward to hearing the results of the comparison before I make the decision of what way I want to go.
