I seriously hope your kidding.scoobaroo said:just hook up a leaf blower to your intake track and it will add like 15 hp. seriously. people have done it before.
Except that the 05 and up are a real tough conversion as there's no mounting for a throttle cable (05+ is DWB) and several things like sensor locations and mounting points changed. You can do it, you just need some creativity.scoobaroo said:throttle body spacer compatibility depends on what year you have. People don't make aftermarket intake manifolds but people with older RSs (like 04 and below) swap out their OEM intake manifold for newer manifolds which flow better (05 and up).
Actually....that video on YouTube is a well known internet hoax in the car world that's been circulating on forums since before YouTube existed.Kostamojen said:Actually... Theres a video on youtube that is quite serious and has dyno proof.
How can you say that? proof? any positive pressure in the intake would gain power. all you have to do is flow the same CFM that the engine pulls under vacuum and you would have power. I am sure a leaf blower could put out much more than that. Now I am not saying that it would do a lot but it would do something and I am sure you could dyno the difference.FalconRS said:Nope, it's not.
The bearing is starting to go bad. Its thouroughly cleaned and still stickingJurzeyfresh said:Kost how did you pop your TB? We may have an extra from our parts engine for sale... PM me if interested.
Airflow and air pressure are not synonymous.amorton said:How can you say that? proof? any positive pressure in the intake would gain power.
Much like my point went over your head. You CAN'T get more air in than the engine can flow WITHOUT positive pressure. That's the whole point of boost.amorton said:you missed my point, you don't have to create pressure at all, you only need to flow more volume than the volume of the engine can.
Without positive pressure, the cylinders will still fill with the same amount of air. Oxygen + gasoline = power (extreme layman's terms, but applies here). Further, the intake stroke itself isn't responsible for all the air coming in. A large portion of it comes from the scavenging effect, which isn't assisted without positive pressure.If you can achieve this than the motor no longer needs to expend energy to fill the cylinder with air. that energy that was spent pulling air into the block is gained back. So like I said all you need to do is flow more than the engine can suck.
