    Lokking into bringing my air filter into the cab on the passenger side against the firewall. Anyone have any ideas of why this would be a bad idea. Seems like the air would be alot cleaner then under the hood (since I took out the wheelhousings) and probably alot cooler then under the hood.

    Thanks,

    Olaf

    It's been covered a few times. Basically gas fumes will leech into the cab when the engine is shut off and there will be a lot of induction noise. Backfires could be interesting as well. The ORD rig had an interesting system through the cab before they went buggy.

    Some pics of the induction are in this URL.
