Instead of starting a new thread id figure id post my question here. I bought my 08 fg2 used with a cai on it and swapped it over to k&ns sri because fear of hydrolock. But with the k&n, the heatshield has an opening for the stock airbox tubing which i dont have. I was wondering if you guys knew where i could find the tube that goes from the air box to the bumper on the mugen. Do you guys think it would be beneficial at all, or should i just leave the hole as is. Thanks for any help.
I've always like the design of the K&N intake. The only downside to running this intake is heat soak.
Even with that heatshield attached it's still sucking up a tremendous amount of hot air.
Even if you had the stock intake tubing hooked up to it, I don't think it would make much of a difference. But then again you need all the help you can get to help it breathe better. Considered where the intake is placed.
It's up to you to deside.
The only way I see this intake really taking advantage of this feature is,
1. Relocate your battery
2. Face the intake towards your headlamp
3. Then attach the stock tubbing to the k&n and run it down the fender wall.
Why not do some research and see if you can find any dyno sheets on this intake?
I'm sure there's some floating around.
