    What would be the best way to run an air intake route? Currently there's just a hole in the filter housting. Where is the stock intake, and is it in a good position for wheeling? Thanks! Cheers!

    Do a search there are plenty of nice setups with pictures that have been around for a couple of months.

    Thats my setup. What I'm now affraid is i have no WATER collector etc. So Driving in the rain I'm worried of water being sucked in. I'm gonna have to redo it.

    Can you rig in a trap (like a sink has) and then put a drain at the bottom of it? would that even work. Just a U bend going down and back up at some point? I've been curious about that.

    I was wondering that also.. But wouldn't the sucking power from the engine just suck the water in regardless??? Wouldn't some sort of filter placed in the tube work better. I don't know exactly how or what kind of filter you could use but.....

    If you don't have a Turbo, there isn't that much suction to draw water up from a dip in the tube so don't worry about that.

    ya, i'll probably just make a small dip and drill a hole on the bottom.
