New air intake - finished.

Finished off the air intake for the Intrepid, so that now it is the same as my 300M, located under the winshield cowl:
Here are all of the parts prior to "assembly" - all are stainless steel except the end piece with the hole for the intake pipe:

Here it is with the filter in place The piece above the filter is the water shield - stops water from coming into the filter housing. There is also a screen to stop leaves etc:

Here it is with the front cover in place:

Here is the cut-out so that the air comes in from the outside The tapered filter is not used, the newer one is 5" in diameter the full length, so is better:


So, now the battery is fully accessible, and the engine gets cooler intake air.
Looks good, with the polished stainless steel, and is easy to service the filter, just two screw to remove & the filter is removable.

I will do up a how-to with pix shortly, on both the air flter and the battery placement.


goal - have one of my parts on every DI car:biggrinfl
Honoured to be January 2007 COTM.THANK YOU ALL.

When I do the HOW-to, you can build one. It is quite easy.
I used stainless steel but if you used aluminium instead it would be quicker and easier to cut. Probably take about 2 hours.

Not sure what you mean - it gets air from outside, under the windshield. The opening is about 6" wide X 3" high which = 18 sq inches, VS the 3" round stock opening, which equals 9.42 Sq in., so in effect, has twice the intake area before the filter.



Of course it should have read "Positive Crankcase Ventilation" - I humbly apologize for the typo.

I asked that because it appears to be sealed from the front, compared to the other intake that is taking the air in from the front. I see what you mean about the sq in. I guess, think about it like this, if you remove half of your front windsheild and drive at 60mph and compare that to removing your entire rear windshield(note: all other windows are still up). Im not sayin you should try that..lol, but maybe you see more of where my question is coming from.
