R&D " new products" SC filter kit
i know they always had the Power Plenum air intake... but this one looks a LITTLE different than what i've seen. (ie ALOT shorter) ...
this is basically what caught my eye ultimately, not so much the design and/or location of the filter...
QUOTE.."NOTE: The R&D "supercharger" air filter kit is the only aftermarket filter kit to properly connect the OEM crankcase ventilator."
so what is the PROPER way to connect the crank vent since they claim to be the only ones to do so?

Wouldn't that thing just gobble up the hottest air in the engine compartment? Just visualizing where the filter would be, you have the engine and the exhaust system in close proximity.

Just a ? wouldn't hotter air be better than restricted air flow? I think this kit looks better than the RIVA kit. Let me know what you think. I'm open for suggestions and reasons. It only appears to be about 10-12" long where a modified riva is every bit of 4ft long by the time you get the filter element up in front of the fuel tank. It seems to be an equal setup to me. Like I said, let me know if I'm wrong.

personally... i think the R&D and Riva kits will perform the same... they're both sucking the same temperature air in my opinion.. jsut one is in the back of the motor, the otehr is on the side and front...
i think these kits aim for FREE FLOWing air with no restriction, not so much cool air.

ive been told the shorter the pipe the better as air gets in quicker but the long pipe goes up front so would say its getting colder air but is it enough as the the shortie is quite a bit cheaper,
has anyone tryed out both??

this thread is embarassing for myself 2005, geesh
if you want a short air intake, then get a Riva rear intake. Cold air and short distance. doens't get any better than that.
