I have a friend here who says these filters add like 2-3 horsepower for our Zetec motors, somthing about putting the filter close to the firewall where a vacuum exists will ease the ability to suck in air...and he says its cool too.

How much do these AEM kits cost? and do I have to get it in Red? Oh well the filter looked awfully small to me for good flow purposes....

I have a pic of his engine bay....

thats the breather filter right? no way even a 2L engine could breathe out of that tiny thing! and if it is the breather filter, it doesn't add any horsepower and where you place it means nothing.

Second, how many people do you think are gonna believe that you're actually serious?

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Hey man...I dont understand what a breather is, thats all. Wouldnt that be a intake? I am used to seeing those chrome air breather setups on older cool cars....

Anyway what could i ask him to see if he is lying? Is there any info about the z tech engine that he might not know?

By the way, you can see where the breather filter should be. There is a hose sticking off the back of the valve cover on the right hand side. There should be a filter on the end of that hose. However, that hose should be a few inches long, not the couple of feet it would take to get that breather where it is in that picture.


I still say that there is something fishy about this pic...
