Hummer Style Intake/snokle

If been thinking of making a Hummer style Style air intake. I dont like the snorkles that run out the side, i know id knock that thing off on the trail. So id like to make a intake that comes up threw on the Cowling just below the windshield. I wan to do this on the cheap and dont see any reason why not. Ive seen pictures on here of guys that had done the hummer swap but id liek to 100% home brew it.


So any ideas on how to run it, what out of and if its a good set up.

Many here knock the heck out of K&N but look at their new inline filter. Has flex hose and a great filter housing that will mount easy.

thanks, im not a fan of Cold air intakes but ill look into this tho. I kind of have and idea of what im shooting for.


From the stock air box run the piping around to the fire wall. then bring the pipe flush with the body with the cut hole. Then put a plastic cone (ive seen them at hardware stores over the opening.

Someone in the TJ tech forum did a writeup on exactly that.. you'd have to search, though.

Thats the one I would follow if I didn't like folding my windshield down so much.

I think that is what he is looking for. But I don't understand why he runs the tube all the way to the Hummer inlet deal. Sealing the cowl is real easy. Mine is sealed. The only problematic area is where the windshield wipers come out. Cover the cowl opening that is open now and let the engine and AC air come in the new inlet. It would be simple to do that.

Would all these cowl intakes people are writing up work for 2.5L's?

I've never worked on a 2.5L but the modifications to the cowl would be exactly the same. The only thing you might have to improvise is mounting the new airbox somewhere convenient in relation to the 4 cylinder.

I used the buick airbox approach.

The hardest part aside from finding the airbox in the junkyard (needle in a haystack) was deciding/measuring where to drill the hole in the cowl. Mine turned out fine but in retrospect it would have been better if I had placed the hole closer to the hood.

I'll work on getting some pics.

I'm just going for the cowl snorkel/intake, im not cutting the cowl, just leaving the cone below the hood vent, but I need to run the hose that goes from the stock air box to the engine
