kühlspeed Ram Air Scoops from £96+p&p

Post by dsbus » Wed May 26, 2010 8:17 am

Unlike others made in the USA back in the day, this option is not permanent, "no holes to drill in bodywork"

Ideal for Autobahn Summer Cruising for larger motors with long 1303s gearing.

Overcome the asthmatic problem with splits, and force cool air into the engine bay, aiding cooling and performance.

Fasten or remove in a couple of minutes.

Three brackets clip into the vents,

and the shell is fastened to the brackets clamping the assembly together.

Estimate around the same price as the late scoops £65. I'm looking for 10 names down on these to get the first batch rolling.

I was thinking 1.5mm mild steel to keep price down, (bare or primered).
I will also get a price for them in aluminium.

Have to say, these are top quality and have seemed to introduced a fair amount of additional cool air into my bus. Was having a few problems with engine bay temps and these have deffinately helped, I'm seeing 10 deg reduction in oil temp so must be better in actual air temp in the engine bay now.

Mine's running a turbo, so that engine bay get's hot. Got to be close to ultimate test so can only be better still on a N/A bus.

Though I only know mike through buying these, I have no issues with a well deserved plug. Oh, and I didn't get them cheaper or free for saying this!!

I'd be interested in a set in Aluminium please? Would have a set in steel though if that's the only option? These would be the ideal solution for getting extra air into my intake pipe.

Keep me posted.

Cheers.
