    Power filter Intake

    Just installed R&D power filter intake on 05 GTX ltd-

    Lost 1 to 1.5 mph-(GPS) from run 2 hrs earlier?????????????- (changed oil & filter at same time)

    Was later in evening- Temp was cooler but maybe more humidity- BUT SLOWER????

    This seems wrong-

    Will recheck all tommorrow and retest-

    Also- I didn't know that you couldn't put your rear "tray" back in or rear Vent tube with this set-up-

    Might just buy 4" flex and make my own!

    How much oil did you take out? How much did you put back in? (are you overfilled)?

    The R&D air intake is right by the exhaust J pipe. The hottest possible place you can put it.

    Now I see that- but only warmed up ski 5-6 min before test run- not enough time for heat soak to be a problem -one would think-
    Anyway did first test run with same 5 min warm up-

    Even before a "complete" warm up, the temps are much warmer in that location than the stock location up front. I would have to think that pulling in the hotter air is the culprit.

    Underseat Temps

    Got 2 remote digital thermometers and placed in engine compartment for a test run today.
    Attached #1 sensor to positive post of Battery(seems like close to where riva filter starts)
    Attached #2 sensor under rear seat-high- to Flush connection
    Results
    Ambient-86f- Water 86f
    #1 sensor came up to 96f after warm up period-
    #2 came up to 110f

    #1 cooled down after cruising- 40-45mph cooled down to 90-92f
    #2 remained high-over 110f
    114f high cooled to 104f was minimum

    Changed #2 position to front of R&D filter- same readings as before- over 110f.

    Ideling or high speed runs increased #2 to 125f
    High speed cooled #1 to 90f.

    Even after shutdown- # 1 remained 10-12* cooler than #2
    #1- 109F #2 126F

    Why did R&D pick this place for a filter????

    WOW

    Anybody want to buy a slightly used R&D filter set up------------
