RE: [DML] Need some Air



Japheth, 
If looks and air volume are not part of the theme with the new Stainless
Steel air breather we make, then to get the max out of what you have you can
remove the stove pipe and assy. Install my cold air tube or one you can make
up with my blue K&N style filter or the K&K filter and you will see a
difference in breathing and you may have to readjust the mixture screw.

Hello everybody,

In the process of replacing my fuel injectors I noticed that the very 
restrictive AIR CLEANER was no longer CLEANING AIR.  Even after 
replacing the filter not more than a month ago there as a very nice 
layer of greasy dirt all over the top of the air flap(can't remember 
what it's called)  which means that what ever wants to get into the 
engine is.

I'm making it a project this Saturday to work out a less restictive 
air cleaner whilst making it less expensive than John Hervey's stuff.  

First question:  How important is the metal heat stove hose that comes 
off of the air intake?  I have seen cars with and without it that run 
fine.

Second question: How important is the hose that comes off the oil cap 
to the air breather?

Third question:  Is the section of the intake that comes out of the 
pontoon all one piece or is it sectional and able to be removed?

By the way after replacing my injectors I have to hesitation, my 
emissions dropped like a rock and no more sparatic idling in case 
anyone is interested. 

I am pretty much just thinking of dumping all the stock intake stuff 
and just put in a free flowing hose with a cone K&N filter on it and 
just hook that directly up to the scoop on the outside.  If anyone has 
any other ideas or input feel free to jet in your 2 cents cuz I'm open 
for improvement.

Thanks again,

Japheth Deaux
