As winter approached, it was time to swap the 'ol open element air intake with the factory airbox setup. This is the first winter that I have faced with my tune and I have found that my off-the-line acceleration and overall throttle response has improved noticeably with the plain 'ol factory air box. However, with heavy throttle input, my acceleration does seem to be missing a step compared to the open element. I'm thinking that there must be a good compromise between the responsiveness of the factory airbox and the breatheability of the open element. So, I turn now to the community for advice on aftermarket intake setups. What are your thoughts on the matter? Does your kit offer both improved throttle response and acceleration under heavy throttle? Are you using a totally custom setup with theoretically perfect dimensions that kicks ass? Perhaps I'm better just droppeing a K&N box filter into the OEM airbox? For my purposes, let's consider the fact that I need a setup that won't allow water/snow to get drawn into the engine. This is a huge advantage to the factory setup and why I always swap to it when winter approaches. I need a setup that's improved over OEM but still 365/7 usable in Iowa winter. So, let's discuss air intakes...for those of us stuck in quarter-of-the-year-winter-hellzones!
