|vrocco||thanks for the advice. I did read one thread on that type and was trying to decide between the DIY route and buying something like the Spectre kit. But $50 sounds better than $150 to me!|

Getting rid of the airbox
Before you fire up the flamethrowers, this is not a thread about trying to gain an extra 2hp with a K&N intake. I acknowledge that the stock airbox/intake system is fine for the purposes of the 4.0L TJ.
My problem is space. I would really like to do a York OBA system in my 1998 TJ (w/ AC). The only way to use the Kilby brackets is to get rid of the airbox.
What are some opinions on various options? Moving the stock airbox? Replacing with airbox from a different car and relocating? Cowl intakes?
I am just trying to figure out the best and most cost effective way to do it and would love some expert opinions. I have read many of the various threads on different methods and my head is just swimming with all the options.
Thanks in advance.
