Wondering what the best method is for Air filtering. KB has the Ram Air, but also many run the big mouth that relocates the air filter under the car.

Can I get some feedback on which systems you guys use and what you like about them.

Thanks in advance.

I have the old Kenne-Bell ram air. I installed in back in 1989. It looks good but does squat. It also fits too tight on the filter and starves for air once you are a step up from stock. I cut off 3/4 of the filter housing so it can breathe and still get some fresh outside air. I also ran with and with out it at the track and there was no difference with the outside air. It was the hot item back then.

Kirban sells Pete Tompka's cold air kit. I have it in mine and have been very happy.

Yes you $###*&!!! I told you the 14" ATR I have kicks the crap out of the Ram Air I have. Spool is much quicker on the ATR.

Agreed. A 9" filter can be substandard even on our engines. The 14" is plenty. Chuck Leeper had a website that had a formula to use for calculating air filter requirements. I don't remember the site, but after reading it and doing the math, the 9" was just a notch undersized.
