Re: Ram air for 954

Hi everyone. I am a new member so pardon my ignorance. I sent Abtech a message about ram air and wanted to get all of your opinions also. I have a '03 954 and I am considering adding ram air. Does anyone make premade scoops? Are there HP gains to be had? Has anyone dyno'd a 954 before and after adding ram air? Any info would be a big help. Thanks.

Re: Ram air for 954

Look in the archives from the old site. I spent about 100 hours developing a system that did work and believe me, if you don't have a working knowledge of fiberglass work, exponential horn flow and lot's of time (and a decent amount of money), you will be disappointed.

Try StreetandComp.com for the Motul. Call and ask for Dan Bowen and mention .org

Re: Ram air for 954

i'm right down the road from hardracing. They quit making the ram air because the molding company wanted to charge a butt-load to redo the molds or something. I've never heard him talking about the airbox.........i'll ask him about that today if i can get down there.

Re: Ram air for 954

I'm curious, has anyone tried removing the snorkles, and just letting the engine draw the air into the box naturally?

Those snorkles look pretty small at the opening....

Re: Ram air for 954

Is anyone listening to abtech? He has been down this road - save yourself some time and money and do a search on the old forum. Not trying to be a dick, but I think the voice of experience is worth listening to

Re: Ram air for 954

Don't get me wrong abtech knows quite a bit, but he is quite capable of being wrong. *I know for a fact that it is possible to
install ram air with noticable results, a buddy of mine has a 929 and i rode it before and after the ram air install, and yes i noticed a difference. *A local machinist made the system and he is making me a set. I will try to get some info from him so that others can benefit from his system. *He charges $150 for the set. *Wanna buy one abtech??

Re: Ram air for 954

fusion, don't get ME wrong. I don't know abtech personally, but from what I've read of his posts, he seems to be quite knowledgeable in the ways of m/c engines. I would love to see your results posted here on the forum - seriously! The question is, is what your local machinist fabricating true ram air, or a semblance thereof?
