Default 2018 Whipple closed air box.

When did 2018^ Whipple kits start shipping with a closed airbox? I want one. If anyone wants to swap for an open box and tube for a 132mm TB just let me know.

Saw it on a FB page. A shop in Houston just got it together. Dustin says they can be bought separate...probably cost a mint though like everything else with their name on it.

I'm fairly certain mine has a closed box.

I thought something was off when I was inspecting the contents... but I did not think to look any further. I'll know for sure when my guy starts installing it this weekend.

I will be interesting to see if it has more air flow restriction than the open box. Some one will have to measure boost on the open box and then measure boost with the closed box on the same truck.

Read somewhere the new Mustangs aren’t seeing any difference. Read it’s for CARB exemption out west.

I can see how this would drop iat temp drastically.

(For us Texas boys in the summer and while towing)

With the hood closed I'd gather they are about the same. However, on a hood open dyno run I bet the open element returns higher numbers. Not that this makes any difference one way or the other in actual use
