GIFO3 showed us that even an excellent design won't help an air filter if it's lacking cubic inches. Of filtration area that is.

With that in mind I modified my trusty K&N's filter box to accept an S&B Performance 6" filter (total length 9") with an inverted cone filter in the tip to replace my solid-tipped 6.5" K&N cone filter. Here are those specifics:

S&B Inverted Cone High Performance Air Filter 6".
On eBay, sold by Verocious Motorsports. $34.05.

Specifications:
Flange ID: 6" (152mm)
Diameter: 5.25" (133mm)
Length: 9" (229mm)
Flange Length: .75" (19mm)
Weight: 1.5 lbs
Part #: R0302

A chrome bellmouth mounted behind the vent mesh supplies fresh air directly to the air box via chromed expansion tubing.

There is a new-found authority to the intake howl at WOT. :wink:

GIFO4 proved beyond any question the value of this superb air filter. It provided the largest horsepower gain of any filter tested, hands down.

Edit: For an excellent "How To" on the ram air portion of my air filter mod see ZMagnum's post here: http://www.lxforums.com/board/showthread.php?t=31858

First of all, I would like to say your ride is really something. You really have set that thing up, the right way! Clean, sleek, sweet, attitudish (new word) and most of all - it screams DIALED IN.

Man, from the tires up...I am impressed. Thanks for sharing all the photos. That was a fun ride!

Moose.

Thank you very much, Moose. It has been a fun ride for me as well.

You can follow the progression of the modding here, if interested: http://www.300cforums.com/forums/performance-modifications/10405-modding-lx-hemi.html?highlight=modding+the+lx+hemi

I like "attitudish" by the way Moose. I may borrow the term if that would be allright. :)

Any chance you can swing by Speedworld on Sunday, even if but to meet and mingle? We'd love to have you join us.

They're used to trick the PCM, on very hot days, into thinking it's a cool day so that it will then permit more spark advance.

Initial tests showed no power increase, but a broadening of the peak torque band. A true chip tuner will render all such "bandaids" unneccessary.

Here's hoping you're back in your re-newed car soon, toothdoc. :)

<Chuckle> :)

I'm not sure that's what Moose was saying, CB, :) but you're point is well taken. Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3s will be on there fairly soon.

I'm kinda partial to my Euro C rims though. And as you know, I've proven them indestructible. ;)

That's worth a lot to me.

No, I like everything about the car, including the wheels. Quite frankly, I think something different and manageable is what make sense. The whole 22" thing has been done over and over. It (22") also takes a lot of the ride away. I'm not saying 22's don't look good, they look great. I just really like how Meister has molded everything together...very crafty and clean. Maybe I should have said 'from the ground up.':01:

Meiser, if I can somehow get my wife to go shopping (easy part) and me take the car (hard part), I will be there. (We have three other cars but I can't stand NOT being in the C'.) Thanks for the invite.

We've got our toes & fingers crossed you'll be able to pull it off Moose. We'll be looking for you. :)

And we should be easy to find. ;)

Meister,

What do you think about this for a air filter mod? GSM is putting the filter up next to the radiator and headlights while blocking off the heat from the engine compartment. Seems like a pretty good setup. They just added these picture to their site so I assume its something new their working on. I think this setup will work really well on cars without superchargers too.

Interesting, at the very least, Shane. I couldn't tell much from the pics other than that it looks like a large fabricated chamber leading directly to the throttle body via a short section of intake tubing.

A web search of the GSM site just now only succeeded in further whetting my desire for a set of those gorgeous Kooks long tube headers. ;)

Do you happen to have the link to where you found those pics, and perhaps more info?

I found the pictures in the supercharger section listed below. They are new pictures and this is a totally different intake from what I have on my supercharger. I am getting a new high flow intake installed on my car this week from GSM. I'm guessing this is what they are going to be doing.

I've spoken to GSM about the Kooks headers and they are supposed to be much better than any other headers on the market in terms of added rwhp and rwtq. The only problem with the long tube headers is they are not supported with the superchips flashpaq.

Thanks, Shane. You continue to be a pioneer within the 5.7L LX Hemi community.

Ahbizmal, on another thread, asked where one can find the K&N Typhoon air intake system (note that the Typhoon is not a CAI - its box is not sealed, making it the best candidate for modification to accept a larger cone filter element).

If one can find a good used one on eBay or anywhere that would be the way to go, particularly if the intent is to modify the air box/heat shield as I have done to accomodate up to a 9" cone air filter element. In that event you'll not be using the original filter element anyway, so its condition at time of sale is relevant only in that the uglier it is the cheaper you should be able to buy the intake system.

On Froogle just now I found a new system for $249.99 on 5-star rated Crutchfield. The ad states "shipped for free", so if Ahbizmal can get them to honor that offer when shipping to him in the Balkans, I'd leap on the deal and not even spend time looking for a used one.

See that here: http://froogle.google.com/froogle?q...ozilla:en-US:official&sa=N&tab=ff&oi=froogler

Here's a more direct link to the Typhoon on the Crutchfield site: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-3ZI3V5AgMta/cgi-bin/prodview.asp?i=513692526P

A search on eBay for "K&N Typhoon 300C used" revealed no used units, but some new, in the box, for $199 and up.

Meister... Do you know if this will fit the 6.1L?

Probably won't the the modding at first, but in the future probably when the warmth hits. Stays cold here until late May.

It does, Ahb'. Same external dimensions of the throttle body for both the 5.7 & 6.1L motors.

And verified just now on K&N home page - same p/n for both motors.
