Custom air filter set up..

k the trucks a 1997 ford F250 with a 460 big block.. on the intake on these trucks it runs 2 rubber hoses into a air box that sits behind the washer fluid on top of the driver side wheel well.. right now it has a k&n filter in the stock box set up.. my idea is if i took off all that hoses and just run to k&n cones off the throttle body.. wouldn't this flow better?? or would it run worse.. pretty sure thats how the TPI set up is on the irocs.. guy at the parts store said might have ****y cold starts tho.. hmm well just thought i would get another opinion...

it might work but you will be sucking in hot air which will negate any power increase.

Another idea would be to get a cone filter and build yourself a "cold air" style intake out of PVC that would locate the filter where it would be able to get cold fresh air.

i also was thinkin about that hot air problem.. but i figured a cowl or ram air hood would make up for it, i was thinkin about trying to find a cold spot under that hood.. but with that big block and all the emissions and computer crap under there theres no room to work with.. maybe i be better off with the replacment for the box.. its a big cone..

make ur own air intake?

i always did wondered about just making your own cold intake system with some piping. THose K&N systems cost like $150, why not just buy some wide flexible hose, duct tape a filter on one end and direct it under the car or something.
