spectre inline air filter

Postby luvrookie » Sun Jul 31, 2011 4:54 pm

thought id show my new air intake setup. i believe this is probally worth 5 extra horsepower. really helped out on the highway. i also did a 2.5 inch straight exhaust. the exhaust probally helped some,but didnt notice as much as the intake set up.

Does it have a way to shunt the rainwater out? I don't see it.

Cost 70 bucks for housing and filter. Yea it's almost as loud out the intake pipe as the exhaust pipe. Right now all I have for rain is window screen around the end of pipe. I'm hoping to reduce noise and water contamination by running the intake under the radiator. When you put a body lift on it leaves a nice spot between radiator and frame. But the rain water does have me worried. With this set up I did gain 5 mph on 82 diesel 4x4 with ps and ac and 31x10.5-15 tires.

Yes, Jerry spoke once of this oversight being risky! Any water introduced into the intake spells disaster.

Sweet setup. I wasn't willing to listen to the extra noise so I connected my factory silencer box to the front using a straight piece of heater hose and a metal box I made. Add a k&n to the factory housing and you have the extra power but low noise.

Your setup also prevents any water from entering the combustion chamber. Great to see you back on board with us! We have a big meet in the works for next year. Jump on the bandwagon with us!

Nice setup luvrookie, job well done! I would also like to try that setup for my next truck air filters. Can't wait to experience and feel the extra hp on my truck. :D

Again, if you don't have a way to divert water, you risk bending your rods. Water won't compress, and with ~20:1 compression, it doesn't take much.
