    Making Ram Air Functional

    I bought and installed a Ram Air Hood. It's a NON WS6 T/A

    What all is needed to make it Functional Ram Air?

    The reason I ask is because the Pix I've seen of Ram Air boxes and Std Air boxes don't look that different.

    The hood has the proper openings.

    Thanks,

    ART

    the biggest thing is that the "ram air" cars had taller lower air boxes. that the biggest difference.

    Tru dat !!

    I went the extra step bought a stealth air box and filter and mated it to a FTRA.
    Then I customed a screen to filter out the larger road debris that gets sucked in. ;-)

    I sealed my hood to the lower airbox with some black hose, I used the rivet holes where the baffles were on my hood for screws to hold the hose in place. I feel this way I get the air 3 feet off the pavement, and not so much road debris. Somebody already had the baffles out, and I've not had any problem yet with water in the filter.

    I've also tried 3 ways at the drag strip with filters, a new AC Delco, a clean K&N, and no air filter, all the same night and 3 runs each way. Made no difference on any 1/4 ET or MPH.
