    Default Vitz Air Intake Query

    If i was to install a Cold Air Intake to the Vitz, Should i connect the intake piping to the Air box or is it ok if i connect it directly to the throttle body thing..??? Isnt there like a temprature or pressure gauge inside the air box that lets the ECU know the density and the amount of air coming in ?? so is it ok if i connect it directly or should it go through the air box???

    REmove the filter in the Airbox.
    Disconnect the pipe going out frm the Airbox.

    And on the exit pipe from the airbox, install a small rubber pipe and put your Performance filter on it.

    Search for Islamabad Vitz meet and look for a pic of a Red Vitz with intake. Cheerz!

    fitting an open air filter to the vitz (specially local filters) will do nothing in terms of performance and in fact will probably restrict airflow or allow too many fine dust particles into the engine. all this does is make the intake sound more prominent which can be achieved by just removing the pipe from the fender to the airbox while retainning the OEM filter.

    Yah, and as storm has said it, you will need to give it a source of Cool air to get any Performance out of it or else it will DECREASE performance by sucking in Hot air. Hot Air means less volume of Oxygen (Low Air Density) so less fuel will be burnt.

    Best is to get a rubber pipe to direct cold air frm the front of the car to the Air Filter.

    Yes, now to my next question, i will get a custom hood made for this, and i needed to know where i would get the most air pressure on the hood, at first i thought i would just make a scoop like the one on the mini

    Vitz Air Intake Query -706583


    But then i got to know that pressure is primarily being formed near the windscreen where the air hits the screen and forms a kind of vortex.... so what would be the best bet, like the one on the mini or some different kind of scoop????
    and will this improve the performance noticeabbly??

    @ak9114u

    NA Engines work on Negative Air Pressures (Vaccum). But getting Postive Air Pressures in the Air Box gets you more power as more Air gets into the airbox than the engine is sucking in. Getting Positive Pressure to build up in an airbox is difficult but not impossible.

    Best bet is that highes air pressure would where the fog lights are in the bumper as air is deflected both upwards and downwards (and sideways too). You wont be able to get a scoop near the windshield (that would look sick).

    Get a custom Air box made from a Fiberglass bumper maker, put in a performance filter and make sure its a air tight box. Get a pipe from the front of the vehicle into the airbox. THat would feed the engine with cold and high volumes of air. Cheerz!

    Thanks for the prompt reply bro,,, i think you are right, but you have misunderstood my idea of the scoop near windsheild,,


    The problem i think with putting the box up front near the bumper would be that water and dust would easily enter the filter which will cause problemss....
