Re: Ram Air

This is a popular topic on the Toyota Supra listing.
Stock filter is restrictive but has pseudo ram air effect by intake 
facing forward and being cut into metal bulkhead behind pop-up 
headlamp. When replaced with afternarket filter you end up having more 
CFM capacity but it comes from underhood air which, in the case of a 
turbocharged car, is VERY warm! There is a modification on our board 
(www.supras.com/tips.htm) using 4"  and 3" metal dryer hose (amongst 
other things). Others on the board have used this with great effect and 
I will be using it on mine next week.

NAC - I can't wait to drive the twin-turbo V6 Audi when it comes 
out....I think I have sold the wife on trading her A4q 2.8 slushbox for 
one! - Any news on whether this will be A6 based and is it still 1998
