Finally I have the pics to show my intake mods. Racon high flow air filter with metal partition to block the hot air from the engine bay. It took a couple pieces of pvc pipe and 2 metal/rubber clamps and then all that was left was the partition.
35 MPG.. Hmmm not bad Ehhh!

Thanks Randy for posting that.
Thanks guys for the accolades. The PVC piping is basically a couple of angle pieces
and then two 3" gear clamps that have a rubber bushing to seal the gap. The partition is basically aluminum coil that I had a friend bend on a siding "brake". The Brake just folded the edges over to give it more strength. If I remember correctly, the partition is 15" long. The end near the strut is around 12" and near the rad it is approx 9.5" It may not be a perfect seal but just find some car door weatherstripping and it'll be close. The hole for the intake piping is just lined with clear tubing cut in half.
I used brass screws in holes I pre-drilled in the front beam/rail (?) where the bottom of the partition rests. There was a brass angle bracket you can see in the pic to support the top.
The partition has a 90 degree angle on the base of it. The base is approx 2" wide. The brass screws then go through the base into the front beam/rail.

Phew... I hope that helps.!!
My mileage before was around 29-31 MPG. So there was a small improvement. Makes a nice roar now too when under hard acceleration. :cool:
