Open Access Graduate Research Paper
It is the purpose of this study to investigate air cleaners and the effect of air cleaner housing design, intake snorkel tube design and filter media on engine horsepower. In doing the investigation, the writer will determine how horsepower is affected by: (1) the size and shape of the intake snorkel, (2) the placement of the intake snorkel in the engine compartment, (3) the size (volume) of the air cleaner housing, (4) the type of filtering media used, (5) the size of the filter element, (6) breather holes drilled in the filter housing, and (7) a partially clogged filter element.
