    cold air kit

    idk if anyone else on these boards has the same vehicle as me, er same engine setup i should say, i've been lookin for a while, and i'm starting to wonder if the new 4.6L has the same air intake setup...couplings and placement wise, as the 4.2L v6 engine.....anyone know? i'd really like to get some extra hp out of my truck, but i don't wanna upgrade the exhaust till i can upgrade the intake.

    stock for now, i just want to find the kit so when i do start doing things to the engine, it can be added into the mix, i plan on putting a throttle body spacer in there for extra tq, and removing the manual fan replacing it with twin electric fans, along with installing a high flow cat/borla mufflers, eventually when i have enough money, i wanna put a twin turbo on this engine.....but thats many upgrades away.

    Re: cold air kit

    as said before, very few things will be stock with the engine, just about the only stock thing about it will be the block itself....thats how much i plan i doing to it, just to whip a viper in a race with a stock looking f150...cept for the slicks...lol

    Re: cold air kit

    I don't believe the 4.6 has the same height as the 4.2L so I'd say no the CAI's won't match up.

    As for those saying it's pointless on a stock engine, that's just not true, it depends entirely on how restrictive the stock one is, and some companies put intakes in that are quite restrictive.

    Re: cold air kit

    either that, or i'll see what i can find when i'm hittin up the junk yards lookin for interior body parts for my truck, see if any of em have the v6 in them and i'll make my own ram air induction system, go buy a custom tailored hood with dual scoops cobra style, and go from there, because it has a rather large intake pipe going up to the motor, just a really small opening going into the fender well for it to pull cool air from.

    your looking at it the wrong way.

    say a engine only needs 300cfm of air to properly run stock. a cai from k&n flows 1000cfm into an engine.

    where does the other 700cmf go? well into the intake, ect of course. but why have a stock engine that only needs 300cfm to have 1000cfm.

    now if you have mods that require more flow to the engine, well common sense you'll need the extra 700cfm to have a modified engine run properly.

    see what i mean, it pointless stock. when i put in my panel filter (k&n) i saw no improvement in gas milage, no "power" ect. I just baught it because I'll never have to buy another filter again. it save me in the long run.

    and to answer your question on where the extra 700 cfm is used, it reduces friction, less resistance in the system=more power, course that depends on the motor, but its noticeable nonetheless even to a stock motor, but as stated earlier, i won't do the cold air till i'm ready to do a muffler system, i just wanna make sure i can find the correct cold air kit...
