ADM Performance Cold air intake makes 18rwhp and 18 tq over stock airbox

The results are in on our prototype true cold air intake on a 427 (Race version-No washer bottle)

After several weeks of testing on the street we decided to run the car today for the first time on the dyno..The results were staggering to say the least

I tried to keep the air-fuel the same as what the stock airbox and filter(thats right -dyno number 23 was stock airbox and filter,posted over a month ago) setup gave us to make it fair.Our shop is air conditioned so the temps are always 72-75 degrees with the same humidity almost everyday.

Dyno comparison in SAE -







EDITED WITH DATA FOR STOCK SS:



Here is some new data regarding the ADM Perf cold air on a totally stock 2SS Man. Basically the car picked up a peak of plus 18 HP and plus 18 TQ. The dyno graph #1 baseline is totally stock. Runs #2 and #3 are with the cold air. All three runs were on factory tune. This cold air retains the factory wiper reservoir in the factory location which is slightly different than the one installed on Andy's LS-7 that has it removed. He has a couple more tweeks to do to his CAI box as the one installed today is a prototype. Andy took pics and said he will uplink them later today for all to see.

The thing that impresses me is that the MAF and Filter are BOTH inside the housing. I do not need the washer bottle as I only take the car out on decent days as it is a hobby car, not a daily driver. The gains show just how much your LS-7 wants to breathe.

I knew it needed to breath.

I was not very impressed with anything available in the aftermarket,so I decided to make my own...Know it looks like I might be making alot more.

Tommorow we will have a come to jesus meeting on how many we need to build to what the demand is....

We will have 2 versions,1 race version and 1 street version.Race version pulls air from the front of the car and street version pulls air from under the car.

Sharp looking piece.

Did you do anything other than remove the washer fluid reservoir to improve airflow into the cavity?

Hi Andy,

What CAI do you recommend with the Maggie?

Could you use this one and relocate the washer bottle?

Street version retains water bottle and uses a smaller filter.

Race version has additional piping that runs to the lower grill area to allow fresh air to the filter box.


More pics coming soon.

Do you have both the race and street version to test or currently just the race version? And just to make sure I understand, the street version won't have the piping that goes to the lower grill?

thanks,
Crowley

Outstanding. I was probing around in that area when I was removing my washer fluid reservoir and noticed that there was really no air that was directed into the cavity. Removing the reservoir creates an 'opening'...but the front air damn likely causes air to 'pass right by'. What I don't understand is why the plastic piece behind the air damn essentially blocks air from the lower grill from getting into the area. I debated cutting the end off to allow air in...but ultimately decided I'll replacing my current CAI.
