I enjoyed reading this thread a while back.

http://expeditionportal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2299

I don't think there's a definitive answer, but it certainly can't hurt, right?

I wouldn't say thats the only benifit. I measured significant intake temp reductions. I would have to search, but somewhere in the 30 to 40 deg F range. BUT My SC makes it hotter there so your mileage may vary.

Not to hijack you're thread but did you get Landtanks housing or work out a "deal" with him? Maybe we need a MAF thread as well...I'm waiting for feedback from Hants on his thoughts...

Yeah curb your hijacks.. but know that good stuff is in the works

Does the housing do anything for normally aspirated trucks?

Yes, you'll find that the truck will run smother, has better throttle response and reports have indicated better fuel mileage of 1 mpg around town. On the highway the truck will down shift much less and deal with hills better.

Not to suggest that Landtank hasn't done great work when I say this:

I wonder how much of the gains have to do with the sensor alone on a normally aspirated truck. That seems to be the bigger bit of it for those who don't necessarily need to extra "headroom" for forced induction.

That's what I'm hoping for Nay, that without a super charger and without a snorkel that I'll still get a nice little kick, beyond the "seat of the wallet" placebo effect. that's a great term, BTW. But I don't think that undermines any of Rick's intentions at all, everyone should see results from this, not just the S/C'd or the snorkeled.

But how much better does it get or can it when you add those extras will likely continue to be the debate.
