Testing: 3A92 engine intake performance
I've been thinking about doing this for a while now. I have sold my MAF sensor housings since before I even owned a Mirage myself. I did the development and testing with the help of you guys here on the forum. BIG thanks guys! However, I've always wanted to know just how much restriction there is in the intake system. Well, there are ways to actually test and measure how restrictive the OE setup is, and from that we can estimate how much power we can gain from going to a less restrictive setup. There is also the factor of intake air temperature that can drastically effect power output as well. As you may know, a bunch of guys use warm air intakes to get better fuel economy. On the other hand, guys looking to eek out more power use cold air intakes. Beyond that, length and diameter of the intake tubing also have effects, as does that resonator box on the OE setup. So, if you are going to do an aftermarket / DIY intake, what is the best way to go about it? There are a lot of variables.
So, I am thinking about doing some testing on the intake system. I haven't dove in yet, and I really haven't even thought about it a ton yet. I am really wondering if there is interest from you guys in this topic. If there is I'll go ahead. If there isn't, I'll likely move on to something else. So, I need your feedback! If you are interested, make sure to hit that thanks button, or reply with some words.
