Default My new Hot air short intake...

GOT THIS OFF EBAY. I modified the air box slightly in order to utilize the cold air tube and the box to contain the cold air and limit the hot air from the engine. Only two tankfuls of gas so far and its too early to tell if mpg's will steadily rise. So far I noticed a 2mpg increase with heavy use of the a/c. I'll repost after three more tankfuls.
I still can't figure out how to downsize my photos t post him on the site as an attachment. Check it out here - http://66plybarraforms.shutterfly.com/

That looks a lot better than sucking air from the engine compartment. Too bad you can't make the lid work with that to make it a true cold air setup.

I was thinking the same thing... if you got a dremel out and cut the top to fit the pipe....

66CUDA, why don't you sign up with Fuelly and post your fuel info there, then we all can see the MPG increase?

Looking good. I was halfway tempted to buy a cone and pipe today at autozone. Let me know how the mpg works out.
