i"m guessing he didnt want to go thru the paypal complaint hassle. I wrote him this morning stating Id be willing to keep one or two if he can refund me what he overcharged me. still waiting on his response.


I used the 3-2 because I couldnt find a 3-2.5 anywhere!! 2 just took an exacto and hollowed it out. then I found a rubber 90 degree elbow on a chevy van at the junkyard and took it. fits right on the other end of the buick box and it can come in handy when I got thru the cowl. I think you can see it in the pic I posted along the firewall.

Off topic, I wanna know more about those flamethrowers in your pics. that is so cool.

If I recall correctly, that piece was re-used from the original tube. There was a little rubber nipple that fit right inside a hole on the buick airbox. It was a pretty decent fit, and I just called it good. I'll take a look when I get a chance and let you guys know if I did something else.

Found these when I was searching:

http://www.enginaire.com/Rain%20caps.htm

Plastic rain caps are what they are called. Wanted to see if you thought they would work. I called and got pricing on the RC3 cap...7" wide, 3" I.D. connector. They are $15.45 each and the company will ship. Shipping to me in Alabama was $4.25 UPS Ground.

I am probably going to order one if you guys think this will work for the topper...

Or maybe this air intake off an isuzu commercial truck:



CURRENT: 2001 WJ V8 LIMITED - Quadratrac, 60th anniversary, Fat Bob's 2.5/2 lift, HID's, roof rack, 31" Rugged Terrains, 5k lb Curt Hitch

SOLD: 2000 WJ 2WD CONVERTED TO 4X4, 97 TJ ON 35'S, 95 XJ ON 33'S

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I have a question.

All modifications similar to this seem all to be for 4.0L. Could I still use the same air box as the OP or would I need something specifically for a 4 cylinder? If the latter, does anyone have any suggestions on what air box would work?

Thanks!

See question above.

I'm bumping this because the thread never "moved" after I originally posted. Maybe because I posted right before the database maintenance earlier.

Edit: yay, worked this time

Um, does it have to have some type of snorkel? or can I just do all the under-hood mods and let it suck air in from the cowl area?

That's awsome! It's simple and it works. But do you have to take the cowl off to service the filter? Where did you get those under hood pieces? I've seen your build-up, you made em didn't you?

Yes I have to take the cowl off and it takes no more then 5 minutes easy to do with 7 philips screws. I made the parts from free scraps of 3" from the muffler shop.

No there is a large drain right under where my pipe enters. The filter itself is elevated off the bottom of the cowl and at an angle upwards from the base of the cowl. You would have to get a massive onslaught of water in there to do damage. Might get some humid air in the rain but hey, free water injection. I would not use a paper filter open to the elements inside the cowl.
