Cold air intake I'm throwing together

Well here we are. I haven't figured out the best way to mount it yet, but things are coming along nicely! Excuse the wiring mess, I'm still messing with fuel injection.
Incomplete list of parts:
4" Air intake plenum: Spectre 9843
4" Intake hose: Spectre 9751
4" Air box with conical filter: Spectre 9831
4" Coupler that goes to the grill: Spectre 9148


The air temperature sensor will be mounted in the black plenum - I'm going to attempt to drill and tap it; if that doesn't work then an interior nut will. The memory flex hose is very close to the master cylinder - this is going to be a very tight fit. A 3" system will work just fine for a 360, and there will be more room.


This coupler....


...is to be mounted on the drilled radiator core support, drawing in cool air from just behind the razor grill. I don't plan on doing any crazy water obstacles, so it should work well until I decide on what to do for a snorkel.






And just for fun, the ECU:

intake

Dude, if you're not happy with that set-up, try welding/riveting an additional snorkel onto an existing low clearance air cleaner. Two should give you the air you need for the 401. Cool factor too. The setup you have now looks pretty cool also. Have you run the motor yet? Interested how the F/I runs....Del

Did you get mad at your coolant overflow bottle and your windshield washer reservoir?

Looks nice except for where to put the air filter.

Looks good!

I was looking for a intake plenum to attach to a snorkel and I found K&N at $169 and thats a bit much. ...

Thanks for the post! How come you move it to the other side? And like FSJ Guy said what happened to the coolant overflow bottle and your windshield washer reservoir?

thanks again
