having performed the described mod last night. The air temp this morning was about 65 with about 20% humidity. I ran the car both through the twisty's in the hills where I live and then up on the freeway and back home again.
I have to say I really like the result. The car perfoms much better in both the auto and manual modes, without using the Sport setting. Yes there is more power and low end torque, but more importantly for me is that there is a faster throttle response thoughout the RPM band. Just like most things, allow it to breathe easier and it will perform better.
If there was a drop-in high flow after market air filter out there we'd all jump to buy it IMHO. Isn't this really the same thing but for free? I will keep an eye on my air fliter and will expect to have to change it out sooner then reccommended with this mod. Not sure there is any possible downside to this mod? Would enjoy hearing others experience with this!
Hey, about the drop in performance air filter, I made some measures calculations and I believe found one . Will post update soon as it gets here and test fitted. By the way there's no company making one for the F.
