Hopefully you do not have issues, but swinging it away and not facing forward plus downward would naturally be an advantage if you have to drive in rain or transport the unit on a trailer in rain because I think the way it's set up now lends itself to potential challenges if you get into rain, possibly.

Well I'm not worried about transporting it because it goes in the truck bed backwards due to the doors. The doors would try to rip themselves open if it sat pointing forward.

I rarely drive it in the rain but I'll keep a close eye next time I do.

I suspect it would be minor or would it be possible to gain a slight performance with clean air being channeled the way you put the piping (direct air induction, fantasy name vs. the unit trying to suck it from behind the seat)? Just curious of thoughts on the possibility....

I suppose while running along in 5th gear it probably forces some air in but not enough to make a noticeable difference in performance. Again, the only reason I did it was to keep all that dust out of the air box.

Just don't glue the end joint. Carry a 90 a 45 or a 180, and switch at your leisure depending on circumstances.

What about the Ram Air?

Pioneer riders do it side-by-side... it looks weird.

Any possibility you could document a rough parts list? I may try and do something similar but keep it below the roof line. What size pipe connects to the stock air box is it reduced?


Thanks

link to my intake pix

The notion was to get the intake out of the stock dust zone kicked up by the wheels and to try and maintain a quiet intake sound. I have no intent of "deep" water crossings or messing about underwater....at least intentionally. I went though a couple test trials and finally left it as you see it here. The expansion chamber resonator was to reduce intake noise and does help take the harshness out of intake sound. I added an extra drain hose just because, made no mods to the seat back, the fit is snug but works fine.

It is reduced. I ran 2" but I had to put a reducer on to get it to fit into the stock rubber boot on the air box. I think it's 1 1/2". Basically all I did was buy a bunch of 90, 45, and 22.5 fittings and start building from the air box on up.
