Default Re: Air Intake

These things do not go fast enough to get a ram air effect.
That starts around 60 to 70 mph.
As for the air being cooler, maby, but the intake is all ready far enough away from the cylinder to pull in air that has not been pre-heated by the cylinder cooling fins.
Folks have made their own air boxes, usually longer, to help muffle the intake noise. It makes for a quieter ride.
