Tiger said:While adearmas is almost correct in saying that adding an entire intake system, with open element air filter, will suck in more hot air then the stock set-up, once moving, that effect is not nearly as pronouncedQUOTE]
Will the new hood with the scoops help bring cooler air into the engine compartment?
I wasn't saying there was anything such as a x or h-pipe type of design. I was stating that the two tubes actually are crossed over one another. The passenger exhaust exits on the driver side tipe and vise versa.Tiger said:I think I remember reading somewhere that the two pipes never actually 'cross-over', they are compeltly seperate from each other. The peice that looks like the x-over is actually welded shut....at least, thats what I read. Forget the reason stated as well, but it was a typical manufacturer's excuse.

Wrong again !! see above. If you were to unblock them, they are holes straight into the engine bay. I would hate to see what the engine would look like after driving in a rain storm ...That was my main concern. And how do the "Ram-Air" GTO's from the '60's address this problem?

You may want to look at these. The scoops that are on the cars coming out are going to be open. Even though they do have the honey comb look to them, they are not blocked off. When you will drive in a rain storm, you will get a little water in the hood. Whether or not it makes it to your air filter is an entirely different subject for we don't have answers yet.
Hello and welcome,MaxHax said:What did they change from the 04 to the 05 to get that extra power does anyone know? Anyways that is where I will start by reading the exhaust thread links posted (thanks) and lurking here and reading.
Wanted to make my first post and say hi to everyone though.
