Why is it slightly better to get one that's not made of aluminum? I'm assuming it's because of conducting heat. Just curious because I will be making one for my V10 soon.hot2k1ram said:getting one thats not made of aluminum will give you an edge over a run of the mill intake, like a volant intake or one of the newer style K&N setups, a throttle body will help out too, and move ur IAT sensor to the intake tube to get an accurate reading on ur fuel, a 180 stat, a good set of headers and a good exhaust system will compliment a programmer very well
I couldn't disagree more. I have the K&N FIPK, and it is awesome. I used to have an airaid, which is about the equivilant to a cheap eBay one, and the filter was located so all it did was suck in hot air off the exhaust. The K&N has it's own heat shield, and places the filter right up by the grill were it pulls in cold air coming in the front. It was a very good mod in my opinion. CAI's are even better if you have other mods to go with (i.e. bored out TB and free flow exhaust).Big Joe SS/T said:i have a volant and tis not worth the money. Get a cheap intake or even a carburator style one. The volant is useless and so is the k&n.
