So, thanks to YJman or including some info on his CAI project I decided to head to the store and replicate his build. Here's the parts I got last night, with the exception of the fifteen or so feet of 3" ABS that the kid at home depot made me buy... Evidently you can't get a five foot piece cut anymore and pay for that... Stay tuned for more pics in the next couple hours.
nice....must be a store issue in your local area, they have like 3 different lengths here you can buy, 6 foot, 12 foot and 15 foot iirc.....can't wait to see it finished, eventually i'll have to do this mod myself....specially since there's always alot of water around here where we wheel alot
Well, ran into a couple issues. One of them being the possibility of heat stroke. I also managed to drill a small hole in my foot....
Now, YJ man said to use 3/8ths adapters and 3/8ths fuel line.... DONT GET THE FUEL LINE. You need 1/2 in. PCV tube. About 3 feet is plenty. Another thing, you need to dremel off the thick side of the button flaps in your PCV valve in order for it to fit and face the opposite direction.
I swear every time I change my air filter I find something new in the air box...
Here it is assembled and installed, after I tightened down the clamps it started raining, so the painting will have to wait.
Thanks man! Now was yours ABS or PVC? in your pictures it looks like all the knobby crap and emblems aren't there. Mine has odd stuff like that all over it. My home depot didn't carry 3" PVC otherwise I would have done it.... ABS is a little bit more solid though.
Also, I'm painting mine today! Priming it anyway... I don't wanna do black, but I don't want it to look cartoony either. I've already got that ridiculous horn under there.
Late to the party, but good looking intake! I did that to my dakota in early 2000 but I used PVC versus ABS... it was too heavy in my opinion. I also bought some of that heat reflective tape and wrapped the intake in that to try to keep the temp down. Don't know if it worked, but it helped in my mind.
hey man...I know im really late to the thread but that's a nice looking intake right there...can I take your idea man? I need to get my stock airbox out and make one just like yours...can you list the products you got specifically? thanks man
looks good im going to be doing the same to my new to me 94,,,
beware looks like you have some critters living in your jeep, keep an eye on your wireing mice or even squirles can and will chew up everything in there and your seats to make great bedding for mice..
