Cowl Intake

Can someone find me the link the write-up on how to do a cowl intake? I tried searching but came up with more "water on my floor" topics than things about the intake. Help is greatly appreciated, im planning to do this mod in the next 2 weeks.

I did a similar one without relocating the stock box and cutting pvc pipes ... cheap insurance against hydrolock.

Enjoy poking a hole through your firewall.<ouch>

... on a last note, I would glue the pipe to the firewall with epoxi - plumbing glue.

This isn't a write-up, but it does show a very nice way of doing a cowl intake

this one has a writeup on here somewhere im just not sure where, he used a buick 3600 series airbox, and routed the tubing through the firewall, it was cool.

Try lookin at the write-up on www.sajeeps.com. That is macb's website, he is a JeepForum member. He uses the stock TJ air box and he purchased another TJ air tub. I don't think it is the one you are referring to but, very clean and worth checking out if this is the direction that you plan on going.

I did this mod and it's one of the best things I did. NEVER EVER get water in ur intake. ALWAYS get the colder air. his write up is slightly off on the measurements though


I love it! i wish i had my camera...my ******* lost it errr....

i did mine about a year and 1/2 ago and love it...the only down side to it is inorder to change the plugs i need to remove the snorkle part....adds time and effort but its worth it.
