EF Airbox into EA 3.9L and stnd manifold
On the weekend I decided to fit an EF airbox into my EA, I modified the air filter with a few snips and a little bit of removal of airfilter fins, into the airfilter to be able to mount it upside down in the air box (so the metal grid is on the side of the intake), I used the standard bottom intake of the EF air box to goto the engine with a shortened stock EA intake rubber inlet (shortened it on the airbox end), I shortened the airbox end of the XH snorkle (just past the lip so that it has no lip anymore), I then cut a hole to be able to push that into the air box to give me the air intake side of things, I removed the standard EF air intake pipe, and put a block off plate over the intake hole in the airbox lid.
Fitted into the EA engine bay without any clearance problem, the pipes leading to the canister under the inner guard, have to be pulled up a little bit to give a bit of clearance, that was the only problem, looks reasonably stock as well apart from a block off plate.
I will post pics and more detailed information if there is enough interest, so tell me your interested in seeing more, and I will take the time to take and post the pics, and write a few more words.
COST: EF air box 2nd hand $45.00 (new around $140), Cheap air filter $15.00 (will get better one later), XH snorkle was $40 new (2nd hand don't know, and I already had this). So say $100 bucks total, using some 2nd hand parts.
Any other questions then please ask :s6:
I did put something here, but it vanshied, I think
"So long and thanks for all the fish!"
