Ram Air Conversion (satchmo88)

I was reading an old post of satchmo88s and he spoke of doing a ram air mod to his stock engine for 3 dollars. Dose anyone know what he was talking about, or when he is usualy on the board. I just checked the whos online and he isn't right now.

Re: Ram Air Conversion (satchmo88)

O.K. I will take some pics of it this weekend. it was incredibly easy only took two parts from Home Depot a (I believe 5" drain w/reducer to a 2 1/2" then an elbow to hook on to the sammy intake which I flipped backwards. It is mounted right up fron between the passenger light assembly and the radiator...and it works, man does it ever!

Drive fast and take chances.

I am also looking to convert it to a straight pipe to the air box, no bends less restriction.

Re: Ram Air Conversion (satchmo88)

Here's a rather poor pick of mine. I used a tin roof flange an adapter and some metal ducting tape.

Re: Ram Air Conversion (satchmo88)

Looks like a good setup. Why didn't you keep the valve cover breather hooked up to the air box. What did you plug the hole in the air box with?

Re: Ram Air Conversion (satchmo88)

I hope you were talking to me.. If I ever go through with it.. Since the Weber (supercharged or no) won't have the any of the smog stuff. I have slowly been working to that end. Auto Zone (or was it Pep Boys) in their engine dress up section sells a pack of assorted tubing plugs adn the largest one in the kits stuffs in that hole nicely. The jury is still out on this whole idea. I've heard mixed reviews about the weber and I don't know if I'm going to go through with it. And my aging engine allows more blowby gases which are slowly poisoning me as the "breathe" out of the crankcase while I'm idling at freeway offramps. I might just save my duckets and buy a used 94 - 95 sidekick/tracker and swap the engine with intake tranny and all. (hey, it's about the same price as a rebuilt 1600, starter, and FI conversion anyway...) Of course then I'd need another vehicle while my sams apart....
