    Default air intake on pajero 2.8 DIESEL?

    aoa pakwheelers,
    i was wondering if an intake is installed on a pajero 2.8 Diesel turbo intercooler what effect would it have on the suv?

    honestly i am a noob when it comes to suv's, infact all vehicles.

    i have read some threads on pakwheels regarding intakes, the idea i have got from them is that intakes allow more flow of air to the engine. cleaner air with more oxygen which results in better fuel economy and better performance too. but my question is that could this be done on a diesel engine?

    what effect would it have on the diesel engine? wud it increase economy, and performance? this is my question.

    and what are other alternate ways of improving performance and economy?

    could anyone please also tell me a good mechanic for pajero/diesel engines in lahore?

    i also have other questions but i'll ask them later, one thing at a time.

    waiting for ur replies/suggestions/advice.
    regards

    Well just keep it stock. Stock air box is the best.

    Hmmm.. But i somehow get the feeling that the engine is getting suffocated. So that is why i wanted to try this.. Like ppl install a snorkel (obviously it has more advantages aswell) but it also provides direct and more air with a higher O2 concentration.

    qwertypoiu makes a good point, on keeping it stock. While I'm by no means an authority on Pajeros (or any other make for that matter) I think that later model Pajeros come with a hood scoop, for this very purpose.

    If your engine feels "choked" or "suffocated", more often that not, it's possibly because of a poorly fitting / dirty / desi-made air cleaner / filter. Another likely culprit can be faulty connections between the air filter onwards. So, instead of rushing out, to make expensive (and often unnecessary) body modifications to your machine, it might make sense to troubleshoot it from the very basics, and then work your way up towards the more complex.

    Snorkels, and hood scoops, and other modifications, are a different matter altogether. If your vehicle feels like it's not breathing right, in STOCK condition...it's a more than likely chance that it won't breathe right AFTER an expensive, after-market modification.

    As for the questions pertaining diesels, and as to can it be done...could it be beneficial...are there other means to improve engine efficiency...the answer to all of those would be "yes". Theoretically speaking, as well as practically.

    Like I was saying, though. It should be perfect while stock. After-market mods just make it slightly perfecter and perfecterer.

    thanku very much for the detailed reply fouad bhai. yes, this model does have the hood scoop. but thats for the turbo setup, i guess. i wont make any body or other modifictaions. only the air filter box will be removed and air filter will be directly bolted on to the pipe.

    gonna give it a try soon, lets see how it goes. will share my experience on pakwheels aswell.

    and i lovvvvveeeee ur new project. it is @#$%ing awsesome!!. i cudnt resist saying it, sorry!

    and thanku for ur reply!
