This week on Money Pit, we're going with the flow - Air Flow that is. Getting more air into your engine is the key to making power. We're replacing the whole intake system to see how much more power we can make on the dyno!
We have a new channel!
am-posts.info/cd/Ovwuc_zaBzXpEo6Up35jxg.html
Here’s what we used in today’s video:
skunk2.com/na-nb-mazda-miata-ultra-street-intake-manifold.html
skunk2.com/induction/throttle-bodies/pro-series-throttle-body-7531.html
Money Pit is where you get to learn about cars as we work on them. Each ep we’ll breakdown how each component works and then we’ll upgrade it. Join us in our journey to build cool cars, learn about them, and drive the crap out of them!
Some of our best videos ever are coming out soon, stay tuned so you won't miss a thing!

Seems like an awful amount of work and money to get 10 measely horsepower. Mebbe you' d have better results if you USE A TORQUE WRENCH.

Get rid of the 180 loop on the air intake 90’s and turns on air intakes restrict air flow substantially

The $700+ spent on this intake and throttle body could have gotten a 5.3 and 4l60e to swap in and make more power NA than $11,000 and "eventually getting a turbo" ever will XD.

$720 in parts... plus tax... plus shipping... for 7.25 horsepower... That's over $100 per horsepower... Quick physics lesson, an intake will make you ZERO horsepower unless your exhaust system was better than your old intake. You can only pull in as much air as you can push out without forced induction.

No pressure in the lines after rest usually isn’t the regulator, it’s typically the back-check valve in the fuel pump assembly in the fuel tank. These valves wear out as cars age and causes the fuel pressure to bleed back into the tank after shutoff

You should insulate that intake, running across the engine like that is heating up the air as it runs by that long pipe. I know it's temp but it could effect the data somewhat.

As a shade tree mechanic for decades I could tell you that when you put performance / racing Parts on your car or truck You will be sacrificing the longevity of that part for a part that may perform better but will not last anywhere near as long. What most people don't understand is these people that race these cars usually tear them apart at the end of the race and rebuild them For the next race.

When it comes to tuning I am quite a novice. That being said does he not have to hook up his mass air flow back to his intake system? I guessed as the mega squirt allow for the deletion of the maf?

Dont know if my intake is the problem. But I'm having trouble with my NOS car. Thinking I might change to turbo but that's way more expensive. I spent over 150 bucks on NOS and my car wont even start now. I know it's the NOS cause I checked everything else. Spark plugs, fuel pump and lines ect .. for now I guess I'll drain the tank and go back to pump gas.

Should have explain although it doesnt apply to this build since it will be turbo charged, but a bigger intake and bigger throttle body will also slow down acceleration, although it allows for higher speeds
