I'm pretty sure that those ram air systems are no longer made.

It's very easy to make your own though...


Since this photo, I've completely boxed in the inner bumper area to keep from generating lift at higher speeds.



I still have the original air cleaner cover and eventually plan on modifying it so it only pulls air from the front license plate area and not the hot engine bay.


My vette mechanic hooked me up with this custom license plate cover.

For most of human history,
Vehicles had automatic collision avoidance and
Could even take you home if you were sleeping or drunk.

Interesting, anybody had any experience with the Vortex ram air setup?

If you are looking for horsepower, there aren't any that really gain more than 1-2hp with a stock motor. Most are mainly for looks, or for someone else to get rich off of.

yes, i have that on my car now. for all the work into it and the cost its not worth it. dont notice any difference, street or strip. anything i would just do the cutout and leave the stock filter or get a k&n replacement filter.

Thanks. It's been almost two years now. It's pretty easy to do and would have done it myself, but he just had the material I wanted for the screen and he owed me some time.
