Front Air Duct Intakes....

G'day all,

Well just finished my airbox mods so I can get some fresh air into the airbox directly from the front bumper. Just have to find a suitable intake that I can incorporate into the front bumper and connect the plumbing.
Does anyone know or have anything suitable to do this....? Otherwise I will have to goto wreckers and find something, just thought someone might know and save me alot of time.....
My bumper is a Dickjohnson skirt so it has a nice big flat area to put a intake.....

Regards
Shane

Re: Front Air Duct Intakes....

I put a hole in the floor of the gaurd, then ran a pipe throuhg it.
you could get a pipe made at your local Exaust shop, or go to Pirtec/Enzed ect and get some flexable piping.

Re: Front Air Duct Intakes....

G'day,
Yeah I already have done the hard part of cutting the holes etc and have already run some tubing just behind the front skirt, but im after something that looks nice to mount into my bumper then all i have to do is connect it all up.

Regards
Shane

Re: Front Air Duct Intakes....

has the rear of the bumper got a flange on it,
or is it flat?
Get some pipe and put it over the flange if its there.

Re: Front Air Duct Intakes....

yeah it has quite a few horizontal ducts and ive positioned the pipe close to one of them for now...But kinda need a flat long intake and then needs to have a 90' bend where the pipe will have to fit in, might be hard to find this, where as i thought a more direct intake would flow better....but thxs I understand what you are getting at....if only I could find something suitable....off to the wreckers n/w i think...

Regards
Shane
