Hey guys, just thought I would post some pics of my homemade cold-air intake. My dad took his setup off of his '94 Chevy 1500 for inspection and told me I could use it as I please. All I took was the filter, and cut the neck off of my stock airbox to use as a coupler between the filter and intake tube. Notice the red breather over the PCV valve. It was easier than cutting a hole and running the hose to the intake tube.

Sounds like you saved a bunch of money. It's not really cold air though because your filter is pulling air directly from the engine bay. BTW, where is it that prohibits a filter like that for inspection? Here, as long as the ECU says emissions are OK you are good to go.

In Texas, vehicles with OBDI go through emission tests, and apparently a 'cold-air' intake increases smog quite a bit. And yeah, I know it's not really a cold-air intake but it sure as hell flows more air. Cool

Oh I see it now, a '94 truck. Yeah, it's the same here. I'm really surprised the high flow filter would make it fail the test.

Do you have a catback on your Jeep? My intake really didn't do much without the exhaust mod.

Nah my best friend has a 96 Ford Explorer 4.0 with a flowmaster racing muffler (we tried many different mufflers) and it sounds kinda ricey...I don't want my XJ sounding like that. I heard a sound clip somewhere of a guy that put a Super 40 on his and it didn't sound half bad...so I might try that.

Three questions

One: How do you have the filter suported so it doesnt sag?

Two: What size breather did you use insted of the stock tubing?

Three: Will the flowmaster super 40 fit my 01 cherokee, b/c that sounds badass!!!

Piece of c-channel aluminum bolted down to the stud where the stock airbox was...you can see it in the pic.

I bought a $10 breather at AutoZone, slipped it over the PCV valve and clamped it down.

If you buy the right inlet and outlet size.
