Thanks for this writeup. I picked up the windstar intake today for $20 and will be installing it tomorrow. I will be using 2.5" aluminum tubing with header wrap instead of the stock intake though.

The shield was a TSB too prevent the "hot soak issue" that the TJ had ...the #3 Injector would have intermittent operation due to the amount of heat it was exposed too. It happen usually right after a long drive or stop and go traffic...you turn off the jeep and if you started back up within an half an hour it would misfire until the heat would dissipate from the injector. adding louvers to the hood also help correct the problem

Here we go. It turned out pretty good imo. Gas mileage has seemed to go up but I may just be easier on the throttle. I used some 2.75" aluminum tube from a greddy intercooler. I wrapped it up with some header wrap.

Okay... my turn for a question. 3" hole into the fire wall, what is that hose piece from that goes into the firewall?

.

Life with Christ can be explained like a Jeep...
Being in the Word... grows your tire size.
Prayer... gains more ground clearance.
Fellowship... Is like having a good spotter.

The more of these you have... the easier it is to get over obstacles in your path.

The funnel looking piece comes off of the Windstar donor vehicle. You can find it sticking through the quarter panel into the wheel well area.

I used 2 3" adapter flanges from the auto parts store and a 4" to 3" reducing elbow ordered from intakehoses.com. I also had to adapt the crankcase breather to it which was probably the most difficult part since the stock intake tube is so thick.

Countless tests have proven that a straighter intake tube will yield the same if not more gain than cooler air. Now, combine the 2 and you may really feel te difference.

Google JLT intakes. They have done extensive research about this.

Hell, any HVAC guy will tell you that. Every 90* turn is equivalent to having 8 extra feet of ductwork.
