Default 91 4.0 cold air intake help

Hello I have a 91 ford ranger 4.0 i don't know if its och or sohc. But I want to put a cold air intake on it. Not spend 10000000 dollars (example) on a k&n cold air. I was thinking about, (excuse my language and no offense to anyone. This is just the way I know how to put it) Niger rig it. Because the Normal air intake goes through a small hole behind the light to big back to small acouple turns then into the air take. I was wondering if I can delete the box and just running something behind the grill to where it will bet better air flow. Not deleting the mass airflow sensor tho. Please help and once again my apologies for my bad language.

New to the fourm. It's my second post!(:

Thanks guys.

I'm not I'm trying to get ideas on something like a cai. My girlfriends dad has a 87 gmc v6 and he took the plastic tubes 6 inch and put them to a hole next to the light and he gets better airflow more hp and better gas milage

get ram air CAI aren't cold air they suck in hot air from the engine compartment
CAI are over priced and don't work

FYI you have a OHV 4.0
might want to know more about your engine before modding it

There is no good CAI
Get a bigger air box with ram air intake

But really just leave your intake alone unless you redo the whole intake you won't really gain anything it's just a waste of money

Default Re: 91 4.0 cold air intake help

Your vehicle was build with a cold air intake, what you are describing as a change is a warm air intake. They seem to have been created for consumption by children that don't understand the benefits of what they have (CAI) VS the warm air intake. Oh, if you do goof around with it and put some warm air intake in there, the correct phrase for this is "the presidential solution" and no longer n*gger rigged. Gotta love this New America and making sure everyone feels good and all that retarded crap, lol.

There we go lol I like the new phrase. I didn't know how to word it different lol but I don't want to just take the box out and put a come filter on it I want to run the tube to the grill instead of the 2 inch tube and switch it to a 4 or 6 inch tube because the tube now is small and makes a shit tun of turns and goes from 2 inches to like 6 at the box.
