M45 R2C INTAKE!! UPDATE!!!!!!! Launched

Postby RED_DET » Mon Jul 12, 2010 9:57 am

Ok, I received a ton of interest for these and here is what needs to happen in order for those to be produced. First, I need a volunteer from the Chicago area (Forest Park) to make a trip over to R2C so they can do some testing & fitting. This will take a couple hours out of your day, but you will be benefiting the community two fold. So who do I got in that area that I can setup an appointment with Ed.


UPDATE 2.15.2013
Black Powder & Polished Units on sale @ $279.99 Shipped within Contiguous U.S.!!!



M45 System has been released!!!

happy to hear that R2C will gonna make intake's for the M45

I really hope to use plastic for the tube instead of the aluminum , ok the aluminum is great in shape & make the air flow better than the plastic but after half hour the tube become very hot and the air that is entering the engine become also hot
so the result is " lose in power "

and don't forget to make a Box sheild if it's short ram air it's better than the sheild that you use with the G35




try to test a ram air by making it over the radiater like this

Image

Image

the idea is the ram air is over the radiater and the fiter facing the grill

the results is great

without tunning

after tunning

I meant the quality will be on par with g37/370 intakes as g35 and 350 z uses plastic tube. Is that the underside shot of a m45 on iPhone hard to tell?

Ummm...ok, none of this makes any sense.
CAI systems alone will not increase power on the M45! Not without tuning to go along with it.
Also, no that is not a pic of the underside of a hood of a M45.
Aluminum tube will help trap heat and increase the IAT's compared to plastic tubes.
Show an actual CAI kit the this R2C makes for other vehicles.
Just a waste of time for this kind of CAI R&D on this M platform this late in the game. JMO!

Ok, I just looked at there intake kits. Nothing new or any different than whats already available.
If they did produce a CAI kit, it will not be a dual intake type.
The only thing this and all the other CAI kits will do for the M45 is make it louder under the hood when you mash the throttle.
Believe what you want. It's not going to be my money wasted.

Thanks for being so positive. Shows great character? What is it that you do for a living? You some type of Engineer that we aren't aware of? How do you know what type of gains can be made with this intake. Have you really done any research at all on the R2C intakes? Hell the argument you just made can be made for any intake on the market, for whatever platform. Except when folks pull out their own independent data to back up what they say. If there can be no gains made from the R2C intake, then they won't make the application, that is pretty simple. But instead of being the "nay sayer" from jump street, how about we let the data tell us whether or not there is any reason to make this setup? If you are going to be so negative, stay out of my thread, period.

You are Johnny on the spot. Next order of business is the consensus of those side engine covers. Are they liked or do most people remove them? The reason I ask is because they will use a beautiful intake tube, but you will only see about 4" inches of it with side cover on. Ed said power can easily be achieved over the restrictive oem system.

yea the stock air box is very restricted. yea if you guys want a little nicer looking side cover and have some money what u think about carbon fiber? i think its a great idea :)

I'm just informing others of the facts. Me and several others have already played with different intakes. They dont help without tuning! Nothing more needs to be said. I dont doubt your intake kit could net gains....but not without tuning to go along with it.
I can see why you would be lashing out at me. Your making a product to sell. In your eyes, your product will net 15% gains in power...eyes just rolled.
You can defend your product all you want. I will stay bias on this subject because I'm entitled to my opinion and thoughts.
Sorry.

I dyno my car with stock air box vs. air box removed just an k&N air filter and difference was was 10hp and 14lbs.
I modified my air box so it will have more open space in front with air ducks added to it for more flow.
i was surprise to see big gain like this.
but dyno didnt have strong fan blowing air in it.

Its quite possible for the 1st gen M45's. I wouldnt know about the 03-04 M45.
I'm just stating what is known for the 06-09 M45's.

dyno sheet...or i call :bs:

the ECU is setup to take in only so much air. only thing you can do is draw in fresh air to keep the ECU from pulling timing due to the hot air building up under the hood. KeninAZ already schooled me on this as i tried to prove him wrong but in the end he was right.

EDIT: the only way to gain more HP through a CAI would be to have the UpRev tune.
