Sometimes all it takes is looking around the forum to find these things, or doing a Google search will find them too.

Somewhere on the Forum are pics of my custom air cleaner which is a copy of Honstein's commercial housing. His is off a Top Kick truck and I had my friend copy it based on the filter element size as I could not source the Chevy product. The element is much cheaper than the box style filter and seems to flow better, the turbo is more audible but I like that.

thanks

I need to sort this all out. I'm a little shy when it comes to cutting the Bird but I think the end result is worth it. I just need to try and round up the parts.
It seems like either I loose the forward cab. or find a top kick unit?

Here is another idea that I came up with by modifying the CAT 3208NA air cleaner for an FC, it has never been actually tried yet. It could be used in the same fashion that I did my extra 4 inch air intake for my NA engine as shown in one of those previous links in this thread.
