Default Additional Air Intake

Hello - new to this forum.

I have a 1981 FC35 that I purchased last fall and am going over it getting ready for camping this spring. I have read that putting an additional air intake is one of the best things that can be done for the 3208 Cat. One of the main things in the way of getting to the front for more air is the air conditioner pump. Has anyone been able to do this succesfully and still keep their air conditioner pump in the stock location. Looking for suggestions.

Richard,

Here is a link on our forum that will give you different examples of the way that some members have modified theirs, that could also be modified somewhat to fit your needs. You can enlarge the single intake that is already there and that will also help, it will take some fabrication, but it has been done.
