Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

hmm looks interesting but not sold on it, i would want to see some dyno tests as ram air is pretty much useless on newer FI cars... but it does have a big air volume area for the filter.

Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

Agreed. Actually ram air is a bit of a hoax. But I like the design and the front short straight shot intake is a great idea. Much better than a twisting tube with ribs to disrupt air. They claim between 13-15 hp and apparently perform very well at the tack due to the "ram air " .

Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

There is much writen about it. It's kinda long winded and is easier if you just google the truth about ram air. But basically at automobile velocities there is little to no ram air effect.

Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

People just take things too literal. I just ideally view Ram Air as a coined name for a part. RAI kits provide additional gains especially on the 03/04 Cobra JLT brands. That's all that matters to me... name it a **** pipe. I'll buy it if it works.

I built a hillbilly ram air with elbows from heating ducts and ran it to my fog lights hole. It actally worked for 10 bucks but not durable. I decided just to remove silencer and called er a day .... Western motorsports is in Alberta isn't it

I did something similar with my challenger but used the brake cooling ducts. It didn't help me at the track over the normal CAI I had prior.

I could tell it was there after about 40 mph. It seemed to pull a little better after about 3000 rpms but there are a few gravel roads on my way home and it didn't make it after a few rides. If it wasn't such a pita I would just put it on for track day but when it's nice enough to be outside I want to ne driving it not working on it

Yes sir, WMS is from southern Alberta, located in the Calgary area. They have done a fair but of testing and the dyno numbers don't do this CAI justice. It will definitely be going on my car this spring!

`Call it 'whatever'-if there is an improvement in performance-it will have merit to Mustang owners.

Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

it looks very interseting, i would think its better then the conventional cold air intake just because its a straight shot.

Sorry, I don't have a newer model mustang, so I don't know how the hood closes and where there would be air coming into the engine bay... By looking at the picture it looks like it takes the air from the two slits behind the filter? Is that right?

Ya I believe it pushes air through the slits. Again prob not much of a ram air effect but it will bring in cool air from the original cold air location. Ram air is a pressurized affect so even with those small slits , if it seals to the hood well enough it could create a bit of ram pressure.

Re: RAM air intake. By WMS

WMS Coyote Wild Ram Air Intake with 87mm MAF has been shipped out today. I will be hitting the dyno probably mid April to get some before and after numbers and will post them as soon as I have them.
