Hey all,
I was just wanting to know what you guys out there have as far as modded air filters. I just looking for some ideas on maybe a short-ram air kit or a Cold Air Intake (what's the difference between the two?). I debaffled my airbox and response and sound is a little better but I just may go out and buy a CAI. If you have a picture of what yours looks like in your engine and post it, that'd be great; just need a couple of ideas and or sites to buy from. High quality products like K&N would be good.
Thanks

Short ram = Like auto's

Cold air = Furious'

The cold air just goes into the brake duct to pick up "true cold air"

careful when buying cold air intakes. a lot of them are not positioned well, so they dont bring in cold air, but hot air.

the more expensive ones tend to be better.
i would make my own, but i am afraid to.

It's a 944, and it's right in the middle, well the filter for the turbo is. The other to the throttle body looksl ike it's down right to the middle grill.

Very nice 944 man, I was looking into those for awhile.

Wow, all your engines look great, I think I'm going to attempt to make my own....
the way Furious did his is the best I've seen yet, everyone makes their intake slightly different. I guess the only thing that's different is where the intake is... hot air rises and with the intake at the very bottom getting plenty of outside air only, that maximizes air flow and the low temperature. Great engine Furious.
