Can you be more specific? The problem is now gone with the intake. Breathing in a constant 75-80 in to the intake vs 180+. Adding hot air to any motor will rob power
I'm suspicious of your conclusions because those with the stock air box don't seem to have the power loss you describe. I didn't when I had one. If this were the case, there might be an legitimate performance argument for why we switched to cowl induction. Also, what are your intake temps on a 90* day? On a 100* day?
Hey all. I did this mod several months back and also had the periodic whistle. I was finally able to get rid of it by tightening all clamps/band straps and sealing everything but the drain hole with black sealant. I also added this:
It's a Spectre mounting plate from Advance Auto (Here) where I drilled the 3" hole. Used a rubber coupler with 2 large hose clamps to secure the housing to the mounting plate.
That's exactly what I did. None of my local part stores had anything that fit so I ordered the right part on eBay. I was hoping to install the new intake that day so that was a bummer.
Try the plumbing department of Lowes or your favorite hardware store. When I did the EFI conversion of my Scrambler some years ago I needed a reducer to adapt the tube of a TJ factory air intake to my GM throttle body - the reducer that connects the air tube to the "snail" on top of the throttle body in the photo below came from Lowes. If I remember correctly, they had a few different sizes, maybe one will fit your application.
