    Kinchyle's Custom Air Intake on Steroids

    Just wanted to say thanks to Jerry, Jerrett, Water4fire, 05limited and the others for answering my questions to help me get this done......

    I'm going to drop in after work today to see what my rpm and speeds are.
    My next step is to pull off the bottom half of the front intake and place a 3" atwood fan. Then put a 4" atwood fan at the rear intake. I also have a temperature probe in the front of the hull so I'm going to test temperature conditions. I'm going to try to get the front of the hull as close to outside temperature as I can. I'm also thinking of insulating the 4" hose. I'm going to put the temperature probe there next to see how hot it gets.

    2 #8 x 1 1/2 Flat Screw and Bolt (home depot/Lowes)
    6 foot 4" Duct Host 2 ply (hosepress.com $4.60 per foot) I have RXT so RXP might just need 5 foot. (Tell them TJ sent ya maybe if we get enough people we could get a deal)
    1 4" flexible coupler (home depot/Lowes)
    1 4" flexible 4" to 3" reducer (home depot/Lowes
    Zip ties (for strapping the filter and wires in the hull)
    4" K&N Filter RE-0870 $32 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN%3AIT&rd=1

    My ixu27 spark plugs haven't come in yet (hoping today).
    Will I be ok takings this thing out with stock plugs ?

    I also tested the suction on this thing with the filter off. With my hand 2 inches from the tube and pressing 1/4 throttle, my hand sucks to the tube!

    The SC can pull some air!!!

    After reading the Thomas's posts from waterfires intake
    a 1500 cc engine will pump in 0.052972 cf of air per revolution,

    at 1800 rpm (idle) the engine requires ~95 cfm
    at 2000 rpm the engine requires ~106 cfm
    at 3000 rpm the engine requires ~158 cfm
    at 4000 rpm the engine requires ~212 cfm
    at 5000 rpm the engine requires ~265 cfm
    at 6000 rpm the engine requires ~318 cfm
    at 7000 rpm the engine requires ~371 cfm
    at 8000 rpm the engine requires ~424 cfm
    at 8200 rpm the engine requires ~435 cfm

    I think I'm going to just pull the bottom of the intake off and let the air flow go right toward the filter without using fans. I think I'm going to use a 4" on the rear still though.

    You will be fine.

    Looks great by the way. If you have any extra hose im sure some board members would be glad to buy a piece from you.

    The hose is at hosepress.com 1866-397-4673. They are based out of Orange,Texas.
    It's $4.60 at foot (4" 2pyl black duct hose) so you can order as small or large as you want.
    I have an RXT and I needed 6foot, not sure what an RXP would use but you can measure from the stock SC rubber tube to the front of the hull.
    I would get a little extra just because you can compress the tube if it's too much. (Don't want to get stuck with too little). The tube cuts with wire cutters and I put a blow torch up to it and it was pretty good with heat.

    I made sure to find somewhere that sold by the foot so if anyone else wanted to do the mod.

    Buying by the foot is great. Grainger.com sells it in 25' sections.
    Thanks for posting that info!

    I am going to Granger to pick up 25' of it today, so, if anyone wants to go in with me 3 or 4 ways, depending on what each of us needs, let me know and we will work out the shipping. My cell is (804) 307-0770

    How rigid is the hose?

    I've been eyeballing different hose setups, and I'm a little sceptical of some of the stuff that I've seen thinking it may collapse a little too easy under vaccuum. Half tempted to simply go with PVC and peice it together.


    Something like this, but probably not as drastic. I probably wont start cutting into the hood like this guy did, and I want to retain the storage bin.

    If you check the specs of this stuff on Grainger.com, I do not think you will be so scepticle.

    Thomas, the stuff is extremely rigid and will not suck in during vacuum. High quality stuff!
