how much power should i get with the c&l power pipe and the heat shield?i know i been losing power with an open filter in the engine bay.i have a mac c.a.i pipe now that gets to hot to touch.will i feel a difference?
Ok. I would have to agree that the numbers arent as high as C&L would like us to think. The deal with the C&L is that it minimizes the bends while keeping the filter shielded from the engine bay (pretty decently I suppose). I thought you were talking about an AFM power pipe that puts the MAF in the fenderwell, the C&L is called a TrueFlow inlet pipe.
well with the shield you will be doing a better job at keeping the air cool...certainly. I just dont know about two tenths off your ET. Best way to know is to go to the track and then let us know. I would be surprised at two tenths...one tenth is more reasonable...and not a bad gain for an MAF. You might get it but Im just skeptical. Maybe if you were running some kind of SC.
With the C&L mass air meter and trueflow inlet pipe, you should drop your et by 1 - 1.5 tenths; although you might get 2. The typical gain is a peak of 15-18 at the wheels and 12-14 over most of the RPM range. Try it and see.
