Ram Air project

Well step one was to get a light, however I got it for real cheap and it's new, so imma feel bad hacking it up

My idea is to cut the lens out, and a 4" hole in the back, along with duct work to ensure proper flow,

Now I was just going to put a funnel where the chrome reflector is, but a member throw me the challenge of making it functional headlight too
Challenge accepted

So I'm order some mountable projector with color shifting holos to mount in front of the funnel and to hide the mounting Of the projector I will install stainless Steel wire mesh

Well just sharing my idea, feel free to ask questions or give me ideas, I start tomorrow on it

Also it's a quick sketch to give you an idea, I want it to have sort of a terminator look

Re: Ram Air project

Good idea, but isn't that going to mess with the effectiveness of the headlight if you remove some of the reflector. Dont you need to protect the bulb some how? Just a thought.

I know it will work if you can get enough fuel in there also. Not a fan of the halos tho, but a challenge is a challenge.

Don't forget some way to drain some water out of your lowest area on the way to your filter. Could be a disaster should you get splashed from another car going over a chuck hole. I went through a touchless car was to wash the salt from the road off my car and I freaked out halfway through thinking water would get through from the shaker. When I popped the hood and inspected things I noticed there is a drain at the bottom of the shaker and everything slopes to the drain. It scared the hot biscuits out of me! Probably want something for the setup you make.

Like the idea he has with the ram air and the headlight covers to protect from rain Also like the red pin strip around the front grill from his most up a thread or two. Not a big fan of the projector head lights. But it seems like that's the direction of automakers these days.

BAS make sure you take lots of notes and try to do this as cheap as possible because I read more about agent47 ram air kit and it makes massive speed improvements after 40mph... And I have a feeling if u pull this off in a very clean fresh from the factory look, you will have buyers lined up (96-13 mustangs) so keep all the how to install notes to your self... Get your self paid! unless you don't care to make it a part time job lol then tell all

Re: Ram Air project

Just getting cooler air should make a big difference. Hope you don't get a lean code.

Is there when you would/could need stronger fuel pump and/or larger injectors?

I don't know if you would increase air flow enough for larger injectors, but it may need to be adjusted with a tune.

The car should make the adjustment itself thru the MAF

My CAI connection to the TB got loose and created a small gap, allowing a more air in. This cause it to run horrible and threw a CEL code. But now that I think about it, that would have been beyond the MAF, SO nevermind.

Does your setup work with a specific type or size of filter? Wondering if your get to take advantage of the newer types of high flow filters, like K&N.

It's a kit that cuts away 1/3 of the orginal box. Uses stock or as i use K&Ns. No adjustment to settings. No tune needed. Runs great. Better gas mpg too. If u keep ur foot out of it. Really picks up and breathes right when u hit 40 mph. I like ur idea I wanna make intake for front air brake cool off the tuck in the blinkers up to the fender seem. Like the 70s.

I'm sure you could get a plastic of some sort to cover the inner reflector and protect the bulb.
