its a hollow tube all it does is make the whole bigger.
It draws air from out side the engine compartment so the air is cooler. Engines make heat, heat makes air less dense, less dense=less oxygen, less oxygen=less power.

I understand that but the tube barely makes it out of the engine compartment anyways so I'm not worried about a tiny increase of heat. I think we are being to critical and I don't think its a bad mod. I did not come up with this on my own many have done this before me must be worth something....

Started this thread to ask a question on the application of this mod on my truck not about the concept of the mod. Thanks for the input. if you want to discuss the mod itself go here http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...-intake-4.html
