Should I remove my air filter before I race? Does it help or hurt, high 11's car, 454 BBC.
X2, there are many little gremlins on the track the size of pebbles that will fly up under a car at WOT, bounce off the inside of your hood and get suck into the carb that is screaming for air.I have seen this first hand and its not pretty. Remember your engine is nothing more than a big vacuum. Valves and pistons really don't like foreign matter during combustion. Is this a rare occurrence, YES very rare. Is it worth the risk, only you can decide that.I'd not risk it. There is this think called Murphy's Law...
He's visited quite frequently.....
Will do Brian, looks like I will keep it on for safety sakes, lord knows enough can break on its own without me.We usually remove ours,some don't.If you see the black Malibu,come say hi,Brian
