Hi

Went to see the pic. Very nice but want to know if the the filter do not allow for more hot air from the engine to be sucked in thus producing less horse power. I know that if the radiator fan goes on there is a lot of hot air in that area.

Exactly the reason that most people don't recommend just putting a filter on the end of the VAF because it looses power in city driving due to heat soak. Try Hotshot and PRM they are the most popular intake upgrades.

Yeah that's true. Having the cone filter connected right after the MAF does suck up a lot of hot air. That's why I only have that setup running in the winter and not in the summer. In the summer, spring, and autum, I have the Hotshot on. There is no reason for me to be speeding around like a monkey in heat in the middle of a snow storm or anything...

bro if u have an auto mx6 v6 its hard to get a cold air intake to teh bottom i did it on mine but iam telling u its herad a lot of stuff ha sto be moved and cut. but its a lot better than just a filter cause with a filter u r getting hot and cold air the car will run better and better fule and more power if it goes to the bottom.
