: Intake question K&N vs FFV (yes I have searched)

11-15-07, 11:34 PM
I know I wont get much power out of it, but I am interested in an intake to improve sound. I am most interested in the homemade FFV with drop in K&N, but am considering the full K&N aircharger.

What I am looking for is something that will make this car sound meaner. I will get less heat soak from the homemade FFV, but I dont want to do it if it sounds about stock.

How loud is the homemade FFV compared to the K&N aircharger? Is it significantly louder than stock?

I have used systems like the aircharger before, and the heatsoak may suck, but the sucking/whistling sound they make is great.

If you want sound, then any open cone-style filter will do the trick. A true FFV uses the stock airbox so the sound is similar to stock.

Stealthy, have you completely given up on the OTR? It would be a money maker, if you could do it.

Three years ago. People in general don't want to relocate their radiators and my carbon fiber guru moved to Mississippi of all places.

Working on better things...

Best soultion is to combine them.

I have an FFV, attached to a Lingenfleter CAI.

Does anybody make just a heatshield?

That would allow for total customization. I could make my own intake tube and attach it to my own filter. I just wouldn't want it sitting in the engine bay without some sort of protection from underhood temps.
