OK... what kinda crack was the designer on when he though... yeah, make the intake go through the fender, come up through the bottom of the engine compartment all the way through to the top behind the headlight, then build a shied around it. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> hmmm... I'm thinking an actuial gain could be noticed by removing the tube from inside the fender and leaving it to get air from in the fender and then perhaps installing a K&N filter... I'd think the air would be alot colder there and it still would be quiet, if that's what you want is quiet and stock looks. I was kidding about the designer, actually about ALL car designers are on crack, you should have seen the mess of intake resonator I pulled from the Grand AM GT!!

I've had the same thought, just pull the resonator out and laeve the tube running from stock airbox to fenderwell. Zero cost and it's gotta get more air.

Well, I am going to try it. The local Grand Prix club I am still in (cool people, even though my GTP is destroyed they welcome me in the club) is going to have another dyno day soon probbably, and I will run a basline stock then remove the intake resonator and install the K&N and see the difference. I'll do 3 pulls each. BTW we got a pretty good deal last time, 50$ for up to 6 pulls! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

Very interesting Mike. I hadn't really looked closely. I would defineately like to know what, if any, gains show on the dyno. I'd go out the next day an try it myself.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Here is a pic of my old GTP On the dyno... man I miss that car
<img src="http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/attachment.php?s=&postid=99471" border=0>

Here is the best shot I have of it...
<img src="http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/attachment.php?s=&postid=99474" border=0>

BTW it dynoed 256HP and 327 Ft.Lbs STOCK, the club (RMCGP) officially agreed that it was a factory freak, GTP's are supposed to be 240HP 280Ft. Lbs (to the wheel 190HP stock MINE was 210 to the wheel!).

I beat up on a brand new WS6 TA all the way to 65-70 mph with that thing. I bought it used. It was killed by a speeding minivan recently. That's why I have this new Elantra.

You think the guys that came up with that resonator are on crack? I need to use a lift to change the last two sparkplugs in my car (T/A).

Pretty much everyone that builds cars is on crack!! LOL!!

Yeah.. I've seen the plugs on F bodies LS1 and LT1... I have no envy for that setup!! Envy the power? YES! Setup? NO!!

The power's nice, but it weighs 4000lbs. Also takes alot more skill to drive fast around corners. Can you say "power oversteer"? With the Borla exhaust, it's a real attention getter, but sometimes I'd much rather be in the Hyundai. If I had it to do all over again, I might have got the Cobra instead. Not as fast, but easier to work on.

Flossy ride Mike....what a way to go...damn min-vans<img src=/images/forums/snitz/evil.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> The good news is you're here with the Hyundai peeps now, so it's all cool. You prolly miss the raw HP from time to time I imagine. Hyundai was sort of a leap of faith for me and a challenge...I like that.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
