Another Quick n Easy DIY Volvo Performance Mod
Home Made Short Ram Intake
I did want to put on a performance air intake. The drop-in K&N filter that fits in the stock air box is a reasonable option, but I wanted the look and especially the sound of the SRI for my mid-life crisis machine. The IPD and Eurosport kits run around $150. I bought a K&N filter and fashioned the box out of a $13 piece of aluminum and some 1/2″ pipe insulation. You can judge from the photos, but I think it came out pretty nice for $60. I haven’t had the chance to measure any mpg increase, but that sound I wanted is definitely there.
