Modfied intake, a little advice appreciated!

Nearing the completion of my first 'ped refurb!

What I would like to know is, is there anything fundamentally wrong with the proposed air filter u-bend / extension?

I want to use side covers to retain the original appearance as best possible.

I will still need to cut a little away, but I wont need to butcher the whole end off!

I know it needs to be air-tight and secure.

And I'm not even sure I will use copper yet.

All I need to know is, will an extension like this make any significant difference to the performance or cause any another tuning problems?

Thanks in advance, Adrian

Pitch that stupid abomination, Put the filter on the right way on end of carb and put a little square hole in left side cover

Ok, gotta admit that looks neat.......... will have a look at doing that tomorrow.

Re: Modfied intake, a little advice appreciated!

It will cause your jetting to be a bit richer due to the increased resistance on the intake. Much like adding a filter to a setup that was tuned with none.

i dont have a puch, but cant u just flip that intake so it points forward or it wont clear the fins.

I second this motion but it has to be entirely made of copper

That set up would probably get you a poor result then taking it off and just attaching it to the end of the carb. As it is, you just increased the length the air needs to flow and added two bends.

Euro-angle plug, neat.

Copper intake is neat, but increased length will cause richer condition, given that the blowback charge is now trapped in the intake and be recycled back into the mix

So , he might get better MPG ? ;)

Re: Modfied intake, a little advice appreciated!

yea I find with sharp bends, at least between carb and cylinder, you pool and then it wants to die when you crack it open off idle

Re: Modfied intake, a little advice appreciated!

Does that have to be formed using malleable copper, or can I use multiple elbows soldered together?

tune it so it works like a boost bottle...

I bet you would be fine running that intake.

Re: Modfied intake, a little advice appreciated!

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!

I believe a decision has now been made......

I will go for a slightly less aggressive bend to reposition the filter.

going to order a 45 degree and a 90 degree filter and see what works best.

Might even use a short length of hose.

This will reduce the butchery to the plastic cover.

SORTED!!

90deg filter, and a slight chomp out of the plastic!

Going to resurrect this thread.

I've just installed a grandpa intake, 15 bing, and hi flow metal air filter on my e50 maxi. The air filter tube is pressed up against the frame a bit - even more so if I put on side bars. Looking at roffmans's setup it looks the same, but I can't tell for sure with the cover on. And Adrian did the whole copper tube for the same reason. Do most of you just leave the filter pressed up against the frame?

Mine is resting against the frame under the cover. I just put a piece of gorilla tape on the frame so it wouldn't make a noise
