well i got it all done, painted them black, clear coated and all.

the */c cooling tube is long...yea BUT my engine runs at 220 on these hot days... driving the freewway at a nice 70-80 mph and its down to 200 degrees. so im thinking yea its getting the job done and the intake tube is a straight 2 foot shot to the filter ...

they look quite nice but only downfall so far is clearance on driveways and the tin or whatever its made out of is flimsy if you hit it... just got to knock it back into shape.

i wonder what will happen when it snows

That was an interesting Read Mike. got me think how I can change to 4in if it will clear my thrasher box.

SSEi_MN looking good there. I just did this myself on my 2K. Only did one side and have it running to the airbox. Auto tapped this weekend with Rogue and figured I was getting around 5-8 degress over ambiant while moving. but temps rose quick at a stand still though, moral of the story it works! here'* my setup http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=21401

hijacking your own thread j/k

50/50 mix, check your engine, if its green buy the generic green stuff, if its orange you need the dexcool.

Whoa, i'd be careful about that routing in the engine bay. You could have ducting sent into the belt and that would be bad. I'd point the ducting more at the Blower'* main body, not just the nose..

Otherwise it'* not bad.

yeah, you want that ducting going straight for the fins on top of the SC, thats where you will get the most results. That and making the ducting and air filter closed will get you the most results.
