No, I am not making fun of it. Several members here have installed warm-air intakes and, as I mentioned, have seen good improvements.

Those of us interested in making custom modifications out of fiberglass have looked into different techniques and one guy on YouTube that has made dozens of instructional videos mentioned that racers want cold air intakes. He pointed out that if you pull engine air, you have a warm air intake, which many people do not realize.

I actually lived in DC and Maryland for two years. I know how much it rains.

How much of a great MPG increase have you seen? Did you do A-B-A testing?
