OK, I was looking into induction mods for brera/159 V6 and could not find any proper induction mods, i respect mangoletsis attempt but honestly i just dont think a cone filter hanging around is the best approach, i quite like AngelTunings one but still a bit basic for me.
Im Busy building a plan for RAM-AIR on this car, i want to replace all the piping and still deciding if i should utilize the current airbox with the K&N element in or if i should design a new box with a K&N filter of the correct size in, then im working on new piping and scoop design to scoop good volumes of air straight from the heart grill. currently the stock intake hangs around there behind the bumper stiffner pointing upwards, thats not direct enough for me, i want the air forced in there as with many motorcycle designs.
I just want to find out something beforehand about the piping, i noticed theres a strange extra piece on the top piping and cant think what its for, i posted a pic of it, so maybe somebody else might know what its for.
The piping i plan to make stainless steel, coated with Zirconium to keep the pipes cool even when exposed to heat, the box i will still have to see what material to use...
All inputs and ideas and advice will be appreciated
Critics, do not fret, im no backyard nail and hammer guy this will be a factory quality product as its being produced in my Companys name and used on my 3.6 Brera that represents my company.
heres the pic about the thingamabob im wondering about....
