For what it's worth, MyFuryRide, you're not getting enough "Ram Effect" on your Fury to even talk about; it would, in fact, be difficult to measure at typical Fury speeds. However, if you'd like to calculate it, here is the formula:......answer: RAM AIR. Think drag cars, butterflies open to allow more air, hence at speed air is forced into the engine, so then the engine doesn't have to use as much horsepower to suck the air in, so basically forcing air in saves/creates horsepower for other purposes, say breaking 320mph?
want better horse power then ram air? may be fugly thoDropping the average temperature of the Intake Air increases power output significantly. As a rule of thumb, every 10-degree F. reduction in charge air temperature results in a 1% increase in charge density that equates to approximately a 1% increase in power output.
Yes true, diminishing but not eliminating. the butterfly ports has a much larger (intake) area then the rear ports area. In essence creating the Ram air effect where air will have to be forced somewhere else, into motor?I was under the same impression as you (having never looked beyond the intriguing operation of the vacuum operated flaps) until L&M revealed that the back side of the Hypercharger was open to atmosphere thereby diminishing the potential for performance gains from a ram air effect. Thus my comment to our resident master of eloquence.
I had a thought of setting up a functioning nitrous tank, but filled with air and purge at stop lights and watch people freak out. or the ol spark plug in the exhaust to blow some flames , now I gotta call a buddy for an extra tank to do this LMAOram some nitrous in it.lol
