Ford F150 Intake

I have a plan to make a 4 filter intake system for my F150 and possibly building heat shields/splash guards around each filter. Here is the engine bay, any ideas.

Two questions...

1. Why do you want 4 airfilters?

2. What is all that conduit in your engine bay?

Idea 1: Clean that engine bay...before you do anything.

4.6 v8, the conduit is for all the wires back in my ricer days, and four air filters idk just mostly for the fun of it and whatever performance gains I can get from it and i've given up trying to make that engine clean, its whatever now, but the idea of a massive intake system like that, what do yall think

Dude, I honestly think that you will not gain anything from running 4 air filters... Except more restriction. Remember, that's no Cobalt. That v8's gotta breath brother.

How about TRUE ram air? I think that might be a good way to not only look good, but shove a lot of air down there...

do this:

1. go out and get a hood custom made for the truck with a small scoop on it, nothing too fancy or extravagant

2. manufacture/find an air box that will sit on the top of the motor and attach directly to the throttle body/elbow of the motor. This style of intake system will prohibit the Ram Air aspect of the V8, and allow for more HP/Torque gain at higher speeds.

3. Install the parts after dyno'ing the truck, then re-dyno. After you have done that, post your results here, cause i wanna know how much gain it actually provides.

Or you could go this route:

1. Sell that Ford, cause the only good they did, is circle the issue, and paste it to the grill
