so like...i made my own SRI than i decided to make it a ram air...here is the result...

No CEL
NO weird random stall (Known to happen to some R18 with aftermarket intake)
No weird IDLE RPM

Sounds great, better throttle response, i can feel a slight increase in power...

the ram air tube is held by zip tie...kinda of ghetto, but the intake total worth is well under $80







What i used to make the ram air

Not bad.

How long did it take for you to make it and install it?

that's clever! Technically, its not ram air induction, it's just a SRI with a duct that brings colder air to it... Let me know if you notice any gains at high speeds I've always wanted to do smtng like this...

the cutting / filing took about an hour...i had to do alot of it by hand...installation took another 40min...cause i had a hard time postion the intake...it kept sticking out too much where the hood would hit it

it's good
but try to make something to cover the filter and then stick that hose to that area, it should perform even better than just stick the hose direct at a small area of the filter

Not a bad concept, try changing out the air tube though... I have a feeling it's not gonna last too long.

clever idea, but personally i dont think it will make much of a difference using that aluminum tubing. i just made a custom sri too but i dont think the piping is worth worsening the engine bay appearance for what little it does.

hmm..it is an interesting concept but im not sure how much more air you are directing into the intake. def. not aesthetically pleasing. but hey..who cares if you never open the hood. i havnt opened mine since i installed the cai.

^^ there is always someone who has to bring that up.
the difference is hes just trying to be funny. gotta look at his posts lol
