    Ram Air intake neon

    I'm probably going to catch some "ricer" flack for it, but this is something I've wanted to do for a long time. I've got them hooked up to a switch to keep me out of trouble.

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    heh...that's pretty cool. I think it's a little bright. maybe wrap some tint around the neons or something to tone it down? I like the 2nd pic. Now put the Nitous purge in the nostrils and it'll look like a damn fire breathing dragon

    How about some pics of the install.

    Do you think the Neon's are going to restrict some of the Air that is coming through the hood?

    This is not my site, but here is pretty much what I did. I used some of the stuff on this guys page....minus the whole cutting and drilling of holes...

    Pics of my install are going to be kinda difficult. You really can't see anything but wires since the tubes are hidden inside the hood near the latch, but I'll try to explain what I did...

    I lined the inside of the "nostrils" with foil tape, and stuck the neon down below them. The tubes are probably about 1/4" thick at most, so I don't think air flow restriction is going to be a problem. They aren't blocking anything, and are sitting on the bottom of the intake on the metal in there. I ran the wires up the back baffle, and then back down and out the rear of it. Then I routed them down the hood, through the firewall grommet, along the firewall and to the console where I have a switch stuck in the hole where the lighter used to be.

    Essentially, the light shines up to the foil tape, and then out the intake screens...

    I got those tubes while I was stationed in Japan, but you can get them at any automotive store...Advance Auto, Autozone etc.

    edit: right...I just noticed you're in sweden...you can get them online at Advance Auto's website...

    I think it looks bad ass!!! fire in the nostrils. Did you use "amber" colored neons, cause thats what it looks like. Should be legal to drive with cause they appear to be the same color as the driving lights, yeah?

    Instead of using neon I say go with some lined LED's ...much brighter depending on how many you use you can change the brightness. You can hide them better their smaller more inconspicuous. Where youll just see the glow not a neon or tubing. I too think it looks good its different .. but I wouldnt want to see where the light is coming from. Same reason neons on the bottom of cars are supposed to be hidden.

    Goes back to the whole theme of Knight Rider haha .. With the LED's you could set a pulse setting I dont know all kinds of ideas. Id want to have some red somewhere else besides just the induction so its just not sitting all by itself.. like maybe the little accent LED you can put in the headlight assembly that while the lights are off the housing glows whatever color you want. that would look pretty mean with both.

    But then again Ill prob get the rice comment.

    I put the tubes down below the intake, not along the top. That red line you are seeing is just the reflection off the tube. It's just brighter there for some reason...

    F**K the ricer flack that is a bad ass job you did. I would like to do something like that to my formula but I have the Brian Green Ram Air system which I don't beleve you do so my install would probably be alot different and more restrictive than yours.

    But nice job and F**K the rice commenting people their just envious.

    Lol nice ive seen pics of these before on a diff site and I think its cool. I second the nitrous idea if you use nitrous that is. I'm not a big fan of nitrous but if I ever do get it this light mod will definitely be on my list of things to do with the purge shooting out the nostrils.
