hey :)
i got a 99 excel and i just got my air filter..
its an "s&b" (i havnt heard of that brand either) its huge like 6.5" x 3". i just got it hooked up to the stock rubber 2.5" intake pipe, and im soooo happy with it :), it increased acceleration a little, and now the engine has this deep roaring sound. anyways i do have a question :p
the airfilter is just sitting in the stock air box, as the lid is off.. and the stock intake pipe (the plastic one at the front) is still connected, so my question is.. when im driving that 2 will pickup air and will pass it into the air box where my new filter is located, will this extra force or air, do anything to performance, because if so then maybe i should extend it from the front of the car to the foglights so it can pickup cold air and pass it into the air box... i hope you all understand what i mean... cause i read over it and i dont :)


thanks :)

i waz thinking about the fog light thing too and it looks pretty impossible to do that, but i have a hood scoop now and when i pay off debts and stuff then im going to have someone cut the hole in the hood and have nice air come in.

im looking at that 2, but i was worried how do u stop water from going in the engine bay, if theres a hole if ur bonnet.
