I'm fairly new to this whole modding world and such, I don't understand a lot of it....and where would I pick up an elbow for it?

I picked up a Durango air hat, the intake tube is too loose and the air hat needs an elbow to reach the tube

Use the stock tube or get a tube from pepboys. This is not rocket science, you can do it.

You might think of just doing the cowl filter relocate at the same time.

The stock tube doesn't fit. And like I said I'm new to all this...sorry I probably sound annoying...

Na you are fine. I think someone on here used the stock tubing. I didn't take a second look for myself on mine because I had already got the 3" flex tube from Pep boys.

I used both the Durango (Dakota) tube and my stock tube and mated them together to make it work, still holding up today

Hmm, so 3" flex tubing, and that would fit the air hat as well as the bit that holds the air filter? Could you link me to the one you used, and did it work without an elbow?

Thanks Zach

Got it installed, just need to trim now and I'll be good to go! Polka what did you use to cut away the metal under the insulation? And thank you everyone for your help!

I used a Dremmel with a metal cutting wheel. I was impatient and I didn't do it as neat as I could have.

If you want to do a really nice job then take the hood off.

taking the hood off made it super easy to keep the cuts clean and to smooth everything out plus its only 4 bolts, maybe 3 min to get the hood off

KoltenZJ 08-15-2013 01:06 AM

I did it all with the hood on, used a grinder. Didn't come out to bad. Take a look at my build thread to see some pics! Thanks you all for help! I love the air hat, runs much nicer.
