I finished mine last week. I found I did not need a reducing elbow, I cut the bellows off the stock tube, flipped it 180* and re-attached it. It fit perfectly to the Windstar box.


I wasn't sure how to finish inside the cowl. I never had that horn shaped thing mentioned earlier. Here is what I did, any thoughts?

I'm in the middle of a hemi conversion so I won't be able to use it. I have $20 in the air box, $25 in the reducing 90, $13 in the filter and some time..

$85 shipped

All you would need to do is holesaw the firewall and bolt it on

I know, old thread but has anyone done this to a 2.4l? I just bought the windstar air cleaner assembly for $35. I really don't like my airaid "Cai" so want to give this a try possibly with short snorkel as I've seen done in other threads.

I know it's an old thread but the info still sounds good. I'm in the process of doing mine. Has anybody used the "Hummer" type air cap with the Windstar airbox? If so, any issues and how did you plumb from cap to air box? Hummer type according to this is 4.5". The M35 is 4". Would either one work?

To me the Hummer air cap seems quite large to put on the Jeep cowl, here's one that's a little smaller (and less expensive): http://www.filtermaxx.com/inlet-hood/x002014/

What it looks like on a Jeep:

GREAT LOOKIN' JEEP! The air intake you have looks more proportionate and therefore better on the Jeep compared to the Hummer. Did I see on another post where you custom made your cowl out of fiberglass? Did you ever produce any to sell for this mod?

Thank you.

Yes, I made the custom cowl panel out of fiberglass. It's got a duct on the underside of the raised section that make it easy to connect the air cap to something like the Windstar intake in this thread, and a port fitting on the top that fits the air cap I linked to in the earlier post today. Here's one of the fiberglass cowl panels compared to the factory cowl panel:



I've got the mold for the cowl panel, but I've been too busy with a new fiberglass project to think about molding any cowl panels to sell.

I would be VERY interested in buying one from you if you produce any. I think there might be sufficient interest on here! How 'bout it guys and gals?

windstar?

I'm afraid to ask this painfully obvious question-Do you have a parts list or did this come from a Windstar? Also, any issues in the rain?
