Lightbulb Relocation of Air Box

I want to make extra room in my engine compartment for a second battery and other accessories. The air box takes up a lot of useful space. Have any of you tried moving it before? and if so where. Any suggestions would be helpful too. I don't exactly have the money to buy a special intake either, just mod this one for now.

So where do I move it?

Pictures would be great if you have them!

Saw pics of moving it under the cowl below the windshield, looks like a cool idea.

Sounds like a great idea. Was it the stock box though? or was it something special

Yup that's what I remember seeing. A search should come up with something?

Theres a guy on here who is awesome with fiberglass selling cowls that have a hole so that you can have a hummer style snorkel without having to cut up yours. Hummer style as in they just rise a few inches above the cowl and are capped

Either the Winstar conical or Buick airbox works great in relocating the intake.

Any mods to the airbox or air intake will cause you to fail the underhood inspection part of a smog test unless you have a certificate with an EPA exemption number on it. That matters if your state does smog testing.

+1. In CA there is really no way to get it smogged unless you get an intake with an EO number. If you dont live in a state that has a visual part of smog, then you can search DIY cowl intake and you will see lots of good stuff. I went with the spectre intake because it was easier than finding and fitting junk yard parts.

Yep. It's on a thread called "Show your hood scoops and cowl induction scoops"
I'd link it but I'm on my phone.
