ram air hood???

i have a ram air hood and was wondering if anyone else has one on their rigs and if they have found a way to hook it up to the afe stage 2 intake to make it functional... i was thinking of designing a box and mounting it to the top of the intake box and use weatherstripping to seal it to the hood, what do yall think???

I've never understood ram air hoods being on a vehicle without being fuctional. I mean maybe most of them are by just simply ushering in cool air onto the motor and all but that's definitely a great idea. If you can figure out a way, i'll be out getting one for my rig!

well even if its nofunctional meaning doesnt connect to an airbox, on a diesel it can still be helpful by allowing more cool air into the enginebay to help cool the turbo down..that can be worth alot when the motor is underload...

Yeah gregg that's true. maybe if there wasn't an efficient way to get it routed to the air box it'd be better to rig something that would blow directly onto the turbo, that'd increase it's life quite a bit as well.

well at 50...60...70 mph that air coming through the openings are definitely hitting the turbo.. thats alot of air coming through those openings at those speeds. i remember a test done by muscle mustangs and fast fords they did back in '94ish that at low speeds ram air systems are worthless at speeds under 40. but once they hit 60 mph the ram air acted like a small supercharger forcing copious amounts of air into the intake. it was good for aound 15-20 hp at those speeds. now imagine instead of that air going into the motor its just filling the engine compartment evacuating the heat and starting to cool everything down.

MAN THOSE HOODS LOOK REALLY GOOD.


WOULD THIS ONE FORCE ANY AIR INTO THE INTAKE, OR JUST COOL THE TURBO?........
