    I haven't installed yet so I couldn't say. I have them from 1"-8" so I wasn't concerned. If you can't find it in here check @inesshell build thread.

    Love it!

    What precleaner are people using? 3" or 4" with a reducer?

    Not Enough.
    Been looking at this thread off and on, and I've had all the parts in my cart on Amazon for a while now.

    And after my last run to the mountains with my buddy that was miles of dirt roads, and finding sand and stuff in my intake tube and filter box from my frequent beach trips, I decided it needed to be done at some point.

    Well, eBay sent me a 15% off coupon, and I got to searching. Not sure if it'll be the same as the Amazon one, but it's on the way. All of it for $116.22 after the 15% off. I mean, what can go wrong, right?

    So when I ran this on the dyno I found out that snorkel inlet is a huge restriction, so it had to go!

    Here’s what I cut off

    72AD2468-CFB2-4AD8-9AE2-3E776A943B16.jpg

    I picked up a spectre ram air inlet tube and attached it to the snorkel with a silicone couple that the hose came with. The inlet now has a very nice bend and I did away with the 45* exhaust pipe as well. I’ll throw it on the dyno again and see if I can make up for that 7HP I lost!

    I like this idea! I might have to modify mine to do this as well. The sharp angle of the rubber adapter to the exhaust elbow makes me think that joint will fail on my vehicle eventually anyways. Thanks for putting a link so I could find it on Amazon easily (spectre air duct)

    I'm interested to see your dyno results. This option would have saved me a lot of headache when the adapter didn't line up with the hole in the inner fender.

    @Rattletrap66 FYI
