Air Breather
« on: May 21, 2011, 03:39:48 PM »


I was near a Wrecking yard so I stopped in and for $20 I got an air breather off a V6 Dakota..

Until I can come up with some tubes that will get it closer to colder air I thought I'd try this..



I think it looks pretty neat and the air breather doesn't get heat soaked like the steel one did in the heat...

I got the idea from you Polaraco.... a little trimming and it was a bolt on.. I suggest everyone grab one..

The K&N was on my Neon years ago... just happened to fit..

I tried to bend some PVC pipe that I was gonna paint to get some colder air but it just kinked... :(

I took her for a drive and it likes this Air Breather WAY better..... Maybe the other one was too restrictive or something..

BTW... I checked the timing and I'm at 15 initial.. is that a good start?

That's a little bit on the high side. When she is warm, does she "rrrt. rrrt, rrrt", or "r, r, r, r,"?
 
Extra initial timing always runs better without a load, but gas mileage suffers on the top end whether or not she pings.

Actually it runs really good...

I've noticed since I put in the crossover pipe and this air breather.. the car pulls harder from 2500 to 3500 when I'm passing... I was quite surprised today with it..
