hmmm...on the TJ my understanding is that the only fresh air intake is
the one under the cowl, it is on the passenger side, can't miss it once you
take off the cowl.

Now that you've had this installed for awhile, I have one question for you...

Have you ever noticed any gasoline fumes in the passenger compartment?
I was just wondering if the intake tract can/will "backfeed" due to intake pulse. Since the fresh air intake is in the cowl if it did then I would think the fumes could enter that way.

Not picking, just seriously considering doing the mod and don't want to have problems after.

Thanks

I have never noticed any odd fumes (from the jeep that is) in the
passenger compartment...

It won't give you the fording that a snorkel will...but I don't need that
much fording capability!

Do you think this would work on a YJ?

Greetings

I have been debating this mod for some time, I have an 06 Unlimited and just ordered the extra air tube needed. I just wanted to see if anyone had any advice on air box tube placement, or anything you would have done differently; how is working or not; any feed back would greatly be appreciated

Thanks for your time

I was searching for a how-to on removing the cowl (sans damage) and found your very, very interesting write up.

The question:

You removed the oil breather tube attachment. You did NOT write up REPLACING the oil breather. The pix show no oil breather tube attached.
Am I missing something????

The note: (actually more than one...)

(1) It would be relatively easy to cut and fit a piece of sheet metal to act as a water barrier inside the cowl intake. This would also assist in redirecting exhaust etc. in the event of a malf.

(b) I would have closed off the old intake with a 3" watertight Hole Seal, cost... about $3. These are available at most electrical supply firms. They are made for sealing conduit openings, and knockouts from dirt, dust, oil and water. Available in Stainless steel, with an an oil-resistant gasket and are fastened with a wing nut.

(III) I would have cut out the approx 2" off the air intake tube "below" the oil breather attachment... and then reconnected it.

Just one man's opinions... as stated, this is a really cool idea. Thank you.
