Vigge I should have some airmass data from a viggen and a 9-5 aero soon with ff-filter compared to std paper. I will also look into the response affect of these filters.
03-03-2005 11:16 AM
abdukted1456 yes. i can't beleive I am going to say this, but please inundate us with data.

I have heard good arguments for both set-ups but so far no pie charts or line graphs. :P
03-03-2005 11:10 AM
lemonscu Do it, Do it. I would love to see some data proving which is better.

I'll put my stock airbox back on soon as I can convince myself to live without the sound ... and find that darned rubber bushing for the MAF sensor!

When I do I'll get you some temperature data.
Once the engine-bay heat-soaks the problem seems to be something more sinister as if you shut off the engine the temps rise considerably. Presumably this is because the supply of cooler-air has been cut-off. But we'll see how this works out.

or time for new plugs....

I know other tuners feel differently about the open air filter thing, but then again they also have a more aggressive tuning philosophy, maybe their focus is on the HP numbers and not reliability? I do not know for sure, I am still trying to figure out the whole T7 thing as I get all sorts of contradicting info from various sources....

xaamottomaax Why going back to airbox?
03-02-2005 12:56 PM
abdukted1456 that does not look quite like what I got...no it will not fit if it is for t5....

besides, that thing looks SPENT. I might be selling mine... going back to airbox, still deciding... let me know if you might be interested. I would be asking a "bit more" than 15 bucks, since it is brand new, used only about 1000 miles...

lemonscu Did I mention my parents thought I was going to be retarded when I was born. I didnt realize I didnt throw the link up.

03-02-2005 12:19 PM
