Anyone have this intake ?

Its the blitz style cone filter from Dayle's site. I read that it doesnt filter very well. Actually, Porter was the one who said it in a past thread. I just purchased one from Dayle, and after reading that post, I'm starting to have second thoughts.

I have a cone filter that is a little bit longer and it filters just fine and the performance is better than a stock filter. I would definately suggest a heat sheild though.

yeah, you'll definetely need to make something to seperate it from sucking in the hot engine air. This is why the stock one works so well..........

but anyway, I don't see why it wouldn't help air flow a little at least, just make sure that the air flow isn't HOT air......

That's exactly why I diddnt go for this option. it'll flow more air for sure! Alot of hot air!

Mine sports the K&N drop in

I went with the GREEN drop-in. I believe the stock Intake system to be pretty efficent, just remove the resonator and replace the filter itself.......

I want that extra sound that goes with the cone filters. I just ordered a green from Dayle. I'm going to put it into the fender, but not to far down inside of it.

i have the blitze it seems to filter the air well. seeing as the old triumphs ferrraris and most bikes have similar filters im not to worried about it. some of those old cars had velocity stacks without filters.

Has anyone tried a cold air style induction?

I found a way to get my intake from my old del sol to fit with a slight adapter modification but heard from another forum that cold air was a big no-no for an svx. If you could get pictures it would be awsome. Do you like what it does?

The air that the stock SVX intake sucks is cold.

An aftermarket "cold air" intake system is only beneficial if it is designed to replace a stock system that sucks air from the engine compartment (hence warm).

The only way that one could really improve on the stock system is to remove all possible restrictions in the flow path.

Typical rule of thumb is to have about 2.0 CFM per 1 HP of a high performance engine. Thusly, the SVX requires approximately 460 CFM. The stock paper filter allows enough flow for 241 CFM. A K&N drop-in filter allows enough flow for 295 CFM. I've read that the K&N 0940 cone filter allows enough flow for 660 CFM, but don't know if it's true.

So my point is... Be sure to put the beginning of the intake tract where it belongs... In the fender well!!!

I have a cone filter in right now ram air style and was strongly considering the K&N dropin and cutting the bottom box out of the intake resonater but i think i broke off some clips and stuff taking it out so i really cant put my airbox or resonater back in unless i want to devote a long time to doing so and i dont know if it would even be worth it. I notice a gain with this filter and a heat sheild and i dont really think that a K&N would do much more for me, but i dont know because i havent tried it. Would it be a good idea to do a cold air style with my old intake pipe and the filter in the fenderwell? I still have the plastic covering in the wheel well so water cant get in it.

Where did you find the info on the flow capacities of the filters? There should be some sort of pressure drop associated with each flow capacity. Do you know those values too?

Over time, I've read in several places that paper filters flow an average of 4.9 - 5.0 CFM (or 4.95 CFM) per square inch. K&N cotton-type (and similar filters) flow about 6.07 CFM per square inch.

I believe that the K&N flat panel that I have measures 9.75 x 5.0 inches... 48.75 square inches.

Thus, assuming that the stock paper filter is the same size, the paper filter and K&N cotton-type flow 241.3 and 295.9 CFM, respectively.

Are there other factors that I should take into consideration Mychailo?

Probably not. I was just curious because I have seen some data produced by a guy with a flowbench, but he wasn't testing SVX airfilters. It would be great if someone could rig up a flow test system and test some SVX filters. :-)
