I'm thinking about deleting air intake box and just put filters at the end of hoses. Opinions?
It is nothing like driving without tires... People delete stock air intake and replace all the time...and I was wanting to know what is the better rout to go. Which I got thanks for the serious opinion.I'm thinking about deleting my tires and just driving on the rims. Opinions?
:stupidYou already have the best option. Seriously. It pulls in air from behind the grille or under the front off the hood. How much more "cold" air can you get than that?!
Want to make it just that little bit better? Use insulation/heat reflective tape to wrap the tubes, and use a drop in K&N filter. Clean the throttle body ports/butterflies while you're in there. Take out the intake air temp (aka air charge) sensor. Bet you it takes a solid can of throttle body cleaner to get all the carbon off it.
Then use the $200 you saved by NOT buying the k&n kit on other things, like a good tune up if it needs it or some new rubber vacuum lines. Hell replacing the old colored, broken, dried up lines that ford installed will probably make more of a difference than you realize for idle and performance.
yo G, as AFBronco and others advised; keep stock box and tubing in-place and consider;I'm thinking about deleting air intake box and just put filters at the end of hoses. Opinions?
TRUE DAT:rockonPeople watch Honey BooBoo & Dancing with the Stars all the time. What people do all the time is not proof that it makes the slightest bit of sense.
And not one of the Broncos I've ever owned had its stock air intake deleted, unless it was immediately replaced by a BETTER stock intake. So there are a few times that what you described didn't happen.
It's not that the question was asked, it's the forum it was asked in.Search! This has been covered a million times and we don't have time to waste on you. Don't go thinking this is a help forum, or social like for stupid questions. JK
mine came with the K&N as well. however, the PO also gave me the stock intake. so i swapped in the stock box asap and sold the K&N. unfortunately, there's not much of a market for it. after shipping, ebay, and paypal fees, i cleared less than $50.Mine had a k&n intake in it when I bought it. I hated the thing. I recently found a stock air box (rare here) and put it in. The truck runs way better, it even got rid of a cold surge that I had going on.
Yo Red,Is there a "dry" inn style filter available? On my last 96 I fried the mas pretty quickly by using too much oil. Thought I went pretty light but guess not.
