Default Ram air mod

I have not done it, and probably wound, but if you relocate the washer fluid box you can run flex tube or pvc to your intake and get a great ram air system. It was a big thing on the Ttian and I gained 3 tenths 0.60 per my Gtech.

No can-do my friend,

The washer fluid container is Way over on the other side of the rad from the air box on the 4G Ram Hemi.

The best place for a Ram Air is the passenger side, if you remove the stock airbox you will see where the opening is just behind the passenger side headlight.
This is the same inlet almost every aftermarket CAI uses... IMHO, WAY too small and the feed from below is not as good as it could be...

My Airaid



View from the engine bay, airbox removed



Here's what the air path looks like from the front with the headlight removed on a friends Ram at the track.












Now get on a creeper and stick your head under the front bumper
look up the passenger side wheel well liner until you see where the air inlet for the stock air box is...

Before pic:


The Key to getting more air up there is here: Phase 1 of the "BRH" ram air I should patten that before someone steals it and markets it for Millions!



Look a little closer...

I Dumped the goofy plastic fake grill, It doesn't even match the Black Honey Comb grill anyway and just blocks air flow.



My Next step is to mold a funnel/tube to scoop up the air that would normally be blocked by the fake grill, and direct it in and up the stock path of travel

If all goes well I'll eventually track down another honey comb grill and graft it onto the outer portion of the stock surround trim after it gets some surgery




the end result would look similar to MGH's twin turbo'd beast
...That's where he put his intercooler

Wow, it is the coolant tank. I was not even paying attention. I just got my K+N today, so after install I am going to try and run a flex hose to the bottom grill. And feed in the the side the the K+N intake box. The Titan had the washer box right in front of the intake. I was messing with it when I first got the truck and was not paying attention.

Default Word of caution

With all due respect to BRH and his very creative way of increasing air into his CAI, just a word of caution: The lower you move your air source, the greater your risk of HydroLocking your engine. By the looks of BRH's mod, the air source has been lowered about 18" or so. I once HydroLocked my '86 F-150 driving through a deep puddle in S. Fla after a heavy rain. Come to find out, F0rd put the air intake just above the front bumper and when pushing a slight wall of water, I took in water. Whamm -- HydroLocked. So again, just a word of caution, be careful when you lower your air source and/or keep mindful of where it is should you lower it. Don't do deep puddles and/or do them slowly. Otherwise, great idea...

Very good point, I removed the intake out of my Acura for that reason. But i think when you are running a tube or pipe to a box that is not directly piped to the throttle body you are not sucking any water right in to it. It is more like spraying on the filter and not going directly into the tb. Japanies car are big on hydro lock.

I'm just redirecting air flow, no actual tube would be running all the way up. Still a very open path,
no different than stock other than feeding air from the front instead of from below (same height)

There are so many 90 bends and twists along the path that it would be nearly impossible to get the filter element even slightly damp, yet alone Hydro-Locking the engine.

I've been into Offroading since the early 80's
and served as a Trail Leader for the Jeep Jamboree program for many years too.

I've pulled more than my share of n00b's out of a River crossing, had them shut their engine off,
get to the other side to pull all their plugs and turn the engine over to pump the water out of the cylinders.

This vid was shot during a Training run teaching river crossing techniques to new trailguides:
(I've done several deeper crossings with water well over my hood)
Enjoy: http://members.shaw.ca/spound/julylo...long02_pt2.wmv

My last Jeep (had 5 of them) an 01' TJ built up 100% by myself with the help of my brother




No worries

if i remember right, there was a "claimed" solution to getting hydro'd, and this was a few years ago now
there was some sort of sponge filter or something that was installed in-line about half way up the intake tube....AEM maybe??
