I'm going to remove the vacum line going from the valve cover to the intake pipe and put an air breather filter on the valve cover to replace the vacum line ... would i run into any problems with this set-up?
The vacuum is going the other way - into the intake system so that the gases being vented from the crankcase have a chance to be burned. It will be things like oil vapor, trace amounts of fuel vapor, other such things. You probably don't want that just venting to under your hood. It would also violate smog control device regulations in all 50 states and the provinces up north.
I have to say without putting a cab around it or sticking it into the quarter
you will be making something that will decrease performance. Even though,
I agree a shorter intake makes it easier to breath, it will be breathing a ton
of hot engine air. That will affect combustion....and not in a good way.
@mattinsocal-yeah thats what i thought ... thanks for the explination
@lampoon-i will be sucking in alot of hot enigne air by placing the filter under the hood instead of the passenger bumper but by placing the filter a five feet closer not exagerating at all the car will pull harder low end but it will lose power top end which i don't mind since i dont have a high reving car ... do you think it being place behind the radators cooling fan will be a plus or a negative?
so I have a 2005 Pontiac g6. right now it has a four-speed automatic
transmission however it is on its last leg so I will need to replace the
transmission. I do not want another automatic though. I would like to put a
manual transmission in. I am trying to do my research because I don't know
Have found a Flowmaster 80 series muffler I want to put on my G6 GT ... Just wondering what should the inlet and outlet sizes be... I really dont even know what size my original stock pipes are ... :confused:
Hello Everyone, I found a way to run an intake for the 4 cylinder engine, without requiring a tune to fix the pesky check engine light issue where it throws a Lean code. Basically because the stock PCM can't compensate for the added airflow past the MAF sensor.
Solution? Decrease the inside...
I know there’s nothing likely new or original in what I’m describing here as these cars have been around a long time and have been worked on by many before me. I just thought I’d offer this in case anyone else might be interested.
It’s widely known that the convertibles are rated at less...
Hey guys! I had a question concerning my 3.5l v6 pontiac, so since I cant turbo charge a 3.5l engine. I was wondering if it was possible to swap my 3.5l v6 to a 2.4l 4cyl. Would it fit in the engine bay? If so what kind of tranny could I use for that 2.4l to make it an manual. I wanted to...
