(cold air enters from behind in the airbox)


p.s do you mean such kind of mist above the stacks like in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2iBbwocYZw

Yep that's it, and you don't need high injectors for it, it even happens with 48IDA webbers.

I would suspect that its just a matter of making the air tumble a bit so you don't have laminar flow slicing across the top of the velocity stacks.. ( Just my gut on this one... :) )

You might even be able to just put a piece of denser foam just on the front of the filter so the air comes more from the sides but is not totally blocked? Aero is always 1/2 science 1/2 voodoo.
