Default Intake routing (suggestions//advice)

Wondering how I should route my intake for better cooling.

#1 Is this going to be adequate for a 2 mile 20min sesh day?


#2 Or I can have it routed in a more front forward facing fashion.


First track day this weekend, thanks.

From what I can see in the pictures for dry conditions number 2 is the recommandable. For rainy conditions, number 1 is better, to keep the filter dry, if you use one...if not water in the combustion chamber in form of droplets reduces combustion speed.

Note:A wet filter increase pressure drop more than the loss due to the reduction in air density by the hot engine air from exhaust side (= s. # 1). You would do the CAI a favour to keep the front surface of the velocity stack free from obstacles.

BTW, it looks great

Make it 2 piece that way you can use velocity stack and when it rains just put a filter on the top piece...
Thats what i would do...
