I'm sure it only needs a little bit of tweaking. Just a thought here; Having a velocity stack exit so close to the MAF sensor without an airflow screen can be a real challenge when it comes to consistent readings. Maybe your idea of moving the MAF sensor farther downstream make the difference.

It may be tough to make changes if you find that this intake is still in the low single digit fuel trim range on your car.

Unless i'm mistaken, that's the same problem VR had. Their MAF was so close to their inlet, the air didn't have time to smooth out before it was read by the MAF. Once they added the screen, driveablity was considerably better. They didn't have the option to move it further down the tube though.

GM claims a minimum of 3" of straight pipe before the MAF to get proper readings or in the middle of a 6" section of straight pipe.

Any developments? Apparently my Camaro will get here sooner rather than later... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=279302 ... the promise this intake shows has me quite interested and I'm willing to wait a reasonable amount of time for it to hit the market. So I can get one.

Thanks for all your efforts.

I am currently working on designing a new MAF mount that will work with the silicone tube and should have a prototype in my hands late next week or mid the following week, then back on the car to test fueling again. If it's good, on to mold making and having pieces produced.

Unfortunately, I will probably have to dyno it again when the new configuration.

So a few more weeks for solid info? Well that seems like a reasonable rate of progression. Keep up the good fight man.

I like how you are taking your time and trying to get everything right. You should have a fine product when you are done.

Well... If they have problems, it will get around like wild fire. I figure I'd rather make it right the first time before they start going out... Only one shot to get it right.

Looking back now, I probably should have waited another 6-8 months before announcing it, but I didn't think it would take this long.

Well the winning name entry has been chosen, and from here on out the intake shall be referred to as "Cold Rush". Congrats to Lee B. for submitting the winning name!

As far as updates go, the latest and greatest is pictured below. In theory this should solve the fueling problems and eliminate the reported drive-ability issues related to MAF placement. Measurements are based off of the stock tubular MAF mount section of the stock air box. The MAF mounts in the center of a 6" section of tube... I was hoping to have the first couple prototypes in hand this week, but I'm told I should get them next Tuesday now.





I'm hoping I can hone one out little by little and achieve the desired AFR and retain the drive-ability, and stable MAF readings, so we'll see what happens. The idea is that the silicone intake tube can be split, and either side will slide over this MAF mount up to the stop ring in the center. This will allow the MAF to be mounted in a rigid section of tube that won't flex like just the silicone tube would, yet almost the whole MAF mount piece will be insulated by the silicone tube material and ultimately keep the hot engine compartment air from tampering with the IAT readings.

Congrats Lee for the winning name! The MAF housing looks promising and makes sense that it should be in a rigid type of mount! Good luvck with the testing!

Nice name and nice update. I'm wanting this intake. Your logic makes alot of sense to me. It seems like how I would make one if I had the time, money and resources.

I hope it all works out Jason I'm holding out for one of these. Thanks for all your efforts.

Just because you'd have to make the tube 12in longer to fit my submitted name on it doesn't mean you shouldn't have chosen it. I feel cheated.

Well if it makes you feel any better, someone by the name of "Joe Biden" also entered and did not win, despite his possible "celebrity", or "High end" status... Although I really got a kick out of the name "Monica" that he submitted, I didn't feel that it would be appropriate

I didn't see that second picture the first time I saw the post although your description painted the picture just like shown. It Should work very well.
