: ". Can anyone give me any info on how this would affect the car?"
: With the HFM right behind the cone filter the airflow through the HFM is going to be very turbulent and uneven. This will keep the HFM from properly sampling the flow which will feed false info to the DME causing it to inject the wrong amount of fuel.
: Shawn, sounds good. So, the Carbon tube helps make the air "less Turbulent and more even"? The reason why I ask is cause if I used a BMP or AA or Jim C. intake the HFM is only about 2 two four inches from the cone. How would this affect it? It must not cuz these guys all believe that only more air and decreased temp. is the benifit. Since the Dinan only moves the cone down to decrease temp. (I guess that is the only practical reason) the tube is only an extended tube to meet the distance. not decrease turbulence or even air flow....Correct? I am not,giving you a hard time just trying to get some info, I understand your statment just based on what other TUNERS do, it doesn't make sense. What do you think?
Thanks SHAWN...Please reply! Aaron.
