Anyone need a 14x3 drop base air cleaner? LOL.
I needed a bad excuse for my 4" cowl hood. So does that mean my "ricer excuse" of an air cleaner setup is now valid? Woo Hoo!
I'm all about the salad bowl from here on out.
I can't tell you about the HP but when I went from an open filter with a drop base to a duel snorkel the duel snorkel drew in more air than the drop base with the open filter according to my AEM air/fuel gauge but my engine is only around 400 hp. Also the results in that test would change if it was done with the engine in a car with the engine at operating temperature and moving down the highway.
Wow that was informative. Thanks for posting that Mike. So now should I try & sell my dual snorkel modified OE unit?? Ole' Bob.
That's what I'm currently running (since I haven't yet cut a hole in my hood). Even still, every variation of a 14x3 dropped-base cleaner they tested made within 20 HP of no air cleaner, and each dropped-base setup was estimated to support at least 640 HP. Since I'm currently not making anywhere close to that much power, I don't feel too bad about my current setup.
With my ~300 hp, I don't feel none too bad about my factory housing. If I wanna feel sporty I can toss on my 14x2 I keep as a spare.
I thought it was a good test. My favorite part was either the bowl or the fact that the flipped air cleaner lid actually did pretty decent. However, they never tested a carb hat and large diameter piping to remote cone air filter setup. I'd be curious to see how it compared.
Mine seems to work OK, Sounds good too.
Makes me wonder about my old GM performance 10" with a slightly raised base & K&N (same size as the original 229 filter.) Maybe it would be better than the 14" drop base with a 14"x3" K&N.
