Opinions on induction pipe

If you are like me then you may have read quite a lot on induction kits, there seems to be quite a varied opinion on what is best and what is preferred. The oem set up sees the maf and fins located right next to the filter/airbox and I understand this is so that air is stabilised before it reaches the maf sensor. My question is if a long arm induction pipe is used that has a maf sensor hole about a foot away from the filter but has no fins, is the air likely to be stabilised by the time it reaches the maf?

Ah, ok. Do all the branded long arm intakes have something built in to stabilise the air then?

No need to be rude give people a chance to answer....

This is quoted from Stoney from a thread I started when I installed the Japspeed CAI

Because some intakes cause reversion . Basically the same particle of airs bounces multiple times across the MAF before it is burnt but only passes the primary o2 in the exhaust once . This messes up the afr.and the ecu becomes confused and just guesses a fuel amount to dump in.The lack of straightening vanes is the key point.

I hope this helps.

All you need to know is, the best induction kit is hybrid racing. Closely followed by skunk2, then Injen, CPL and all the other CAIs.
