This week on Money Pit, we're going with the flow - Air Flow that is. Getting more air into your engine is the key to making power. We're replacing the whole intake system to see how much more power we can make on the dyno!
We have a new channel!

Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

  • No pressure in the lines after rest usually isn’t the regulator, it’s typically the back-check valve in the fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. These valves wear out as cars age and causes the fuel pressure to bleed back into the tank after shutoff

  • You should insulate that intake, running across the engine like that is heating up the air as it runs by that long pipe. I know it's temp but it could effect the data somewhat.

  • As a shade tree mechanic for decades I could tell you that when you put performance / racing Parts on your car or truck You will be sacrificing the longevity of that part for a part that may perform better but will not last anywhere near as long. What most people don't understand is these people that race these cars usually tear them apart at the end of the race and rebuild them For the next race.

  • Dont know if my intake is the problem. But I'm having trouble with my NOS car. Thinking I might change to turbo but that's way more expensive. I spent over 150 bucks on NOS and my car wont even start now. I know it's the NOS cause I checked everything else. Spark plugs, fuel pump and lines ect .. for now I guess I'll drain the tank and go back to pump gas.

    Mike LitorisMike LitorisMese fa
  • Right at the beginning I thought: Ah... another one of the "cold air intakes" which actually takes more hot air than the factory intake and therefore often reduce power. And also the the piping will gain... like 5 HP or the like? Okay It was a bit more, but other than on a dyno you will not notice it - something about 6% more "powa"? Don't waste you money. Stuff like a bigger intercooler on a turboed car does help. This not so much.
