Anyones interesting on pipe or superlon, contack ninja_iga aka Stanley.

wetwetwater, thanks and i'm fine with my stock EX850 engine. :P
The Aluminium Air RAM Pipe are made from MPower, somewhere near Chung Ling's High School. I think it won't cost much. But with this modification, i had to sacrify away my Windscreen water box. :P

After this DIY, engine response was a bit faster. :)

Stanley, thanks for the Superlon. :)

Ok, this small filter actually is used on EFI engine. For better air flow smooth go in injectors.

But i use it for : Since i change to open pod air filter, there is a hose that connect back to original air filter box from engine bay. But it can't connect back after i used open pod air filter, sometimes when then engine's oil was too full/high rev. Some engine oil will come out from this hose, and spread it on everywhere on my engine bay. Thats why i use this small filter to stop those engine oil spread out and let those burned gas go out with a transparent pipe (for fish tank use). And i dun want those burned gas go into my Air Filter. :P

That small filter can get it from any mech places. RM10 only.

Hope my answer doesn't confuse you.

Did i answer your questions ? :)

Benefit with this curve extended Air Ram are you can point your Air Filter to diff directions (depends where is your cold air intake).

MPower customized it for me. :) Price around RM35 ~ 40 (Price are not fixed) Hope you all understand. B)

Pic #3: Upclose

The green wire is to hold the white-color 3.25" hose. The hose doesn't run all the way down to the bumper, but slightly longer than you can see for the colder air in the fender area. I have tried various setup. It's NOT neccessary to have the opening behind the bumper. Just make sure all the possible holes around that area is sealed, leaving a front one for fresh air from the bumper.

1 inch longer that you can see from the photo.. should i say.. slightly lower than the head lamp. this mod is not cheap. you need to get the used S-hose and the airbox from half cut. Must be the MMC type.. Not siemens type. Around RM60-80..

note: sorry bro slk850... for hijacking.. haha!! As long as we share right?

yes, better low end torque especially during slow traffic under hot sun. This mod can also prevent the problems of rain droplet, sand and insect being sucked into the intake. Just colder air and bigger, shorter pre-filter hose. The sound is nice too.. :)

today i happen to be free... so my hand getting itchy :P
drexchan's idea is good and easy to do...
so i removed my modded air box and install back the stock air box...
cut the S-shaped hose i got from chop shop last time...
put the cut S-shaped hose at the same place as drexchan did...
and it fit nicely into the air box :D

here's the 1st pic:
