why not just install one of these:

after you put it in, post it in here and see what kind of response you'll get.
Seriously Dude....I dont think many of us here are that stupid. Does his Mod look better? yes fo sho! Again and for the last time....HOW MUCH CAN IT ACTUALLY HURT HIS TRUCK? Please answer. I will definately try and get my Ranger on the dyno and try some stuff in the near future. For real dude..he was proud of the work he did and unless he is going for some increase in his quarter mile times, or he puts some aftermarket power adder on....the negative affects of this, in my opinion will be VERY small.(He isnt going to hurt anything, in my opinion)
Ryan, congrats to u for trying to learn something! I think it is great!

The motor in the truck is a 4.0, the intake was custom made.

Reading helps.

Now if the intake is wrapped in heat wrap, it'll help keep the temps low. Cooler air especially in the volume flowing through that tube will definitely make a difference.... Throw on larger diameter exhaust and you complete the cycle of more HP, TQ and fuel economy. More going in, more going out. It's simple.

You have to understand that under load, the stock rubber tubing used can shrink, being elastic... Resulting in less volume being pulled through the intake manifold itself. Switching to a tube that is not elastic like rubber to me seems already like the better answer.. Which gives you more volume under the same amount of load even if the temps don't change. Rubber doesn't block heat either, neither does steel or aluminum... But holding the volume constant, will help a lot with power.

I think it looks good man! You did good work! And you're happy about it and that's all that matters.

A tube that big would work with a monster GT850 turbo, but oh wait - your N/A -

I agree with Takeada, placebo effect.

That intake should give you a bit of gain at the right air temp even if the ECU isn't tuned for it. So like 1 or 2 hp. The stock system is restrictive since it is made to quiet down the engine.

Dude, you have to realize, very few people value your opinion here. You have cut so many people down, that what is the point of you even posting? Your a dick, and no one cares. You are clogging up his thread with your mindless bashing. We all know that there sint going to be huge performance gains without a tune, leave it alone. He is in WINNIPEG, do you know the average temp there? 8 Celsius, 8!!!.

Look here: http://www.worldclimate.com/cgi-bin/...1200+0015201G2


To the OP: I like it, and what you are feeling is probably just psychological. But that doesn't matter, it looks good, a lot better than most of the other home jobs one here. I have to give you props for doing it yourself, and not coping out and buying one off fleabay.

As well, look into getting a "driflo" airfilter. There is no oiling of the filter, which means less fouling of the MAF etc. I have heard problems with them clogging up the MAF. If I wasn't worried about water soaking my airfilter (we have alot of rain and mud in BC) I would have a similar setup for my truck.

Kudos

I agree completely, 1 to 2 hp, and if you are driving a horse and buggy carraige, this is a big hp gain.

Not bashing at all, just I cant stand all these posts "omg i gained 234234 hp from an intake and I can totally feel a difference" - Facts not fiction.

You agreed with Takeda, he was bashing, so if you are agreeing with him bashing the OP that means you are bashing no?

Best cheap ranger power mod: Headwork w/ tune - Cheaper than a catback & intake if you know how to do it.

Oh yeah - I do agree with you 100% - heat coming in through the Cone is bad. FD hit on this the most. I have metal pipes everywhere in my car, and they have much more heat nearby than the OP's ranger. The pipes themselves don't really get warm, it is the warm air sucked through the intake that hurts you. With N/A engines heat isn't so bad but under boosted applications it promotes knock.

See - more metal plumbing than super mario bros.



Last time I had an open air intake and too much advance the heat did this to me:



And I had to rebuild the engine... (that was a long time ago)

i have a 40 series flow 2.5 in catback dumped behind the cab and its really nice. also about the ppl that are saying that the tube till heat up and make it a hai, thats possible. just driving it around the block wont heat it up enough. i have a civic that i had a cai on and to keep the heat down on the intake i put thermal wrap(for headers) and that kept them cool.
