I heard that it robs power since it spits air out the side. Any truth to that?

Never heard of that, if its properly installed (Parallel to the throttlebody) then it shouldnt do that. :dunno:

How would it spit air out the side? The engine is pulling the air it needs in through the intake...the intake isn't forcing any more air in. It's not forced induction. The filter, as long as it's not waterlogged, will be the path of least resistance for the engine to draw air through, so that's where it's going to come from.


think this would fit in a duratec with the battery in the stock position?[/b]
Sure. You can see his battery terminals there, so he still has the battery in the original location. There's essentially the same clearance for the intake on a Vulcan or a 'tec, so you'll be fine. :)

They all need to stay. Leave everything from the MAF to the throttle body alone...check Mediarocker's pics and you'll see. The MAF housing unbolts from the airbox, and you bolt on an adapter that will mate to the new intake piping.

There will be next to zero power gain, but it'll sound neat :)

Sniper, that's the Intake Air Temperature sensor you're referring to. Drill a hole in the new intake, and stick the sensor in there. Ideally, you should use a rubber grommet to stick the sensor into, so that it seals and seats properly.


Mr. Mediarocker, the intake sounds freakin awesome. :thumb: Sounds just like my setup.
