Reversible new mission

A 1 1/2" to 1 1/4" PVC bushing will actually thread into the hole where the silencer came into the air box with a slight bit of force. The below link is not the one I used, I used one from Home Depot, but this one has the best image.

You may want to add an adapter or glue some pipe to the outside of the male threads once it is on the air box, but I got it to hang tight on the 3 threads that are exposed.

I used a 2 1/2" shop vac hose as my ducting and attached it to the bushing in the air box using a worm gear clamp. Since I do not have fogs, I routed it through the drivers side fog light port cover.

If anyone wants pics, I can take some Monday morning of the inside of the air box, the path through the engine bay, and the fog cover pretty easy. I should have taken some while I was doing it, but it was going so smooth I got caught up on getting it done.

Don't do the funnel. attach it to any piece of plastic you want up front. or I can look for a fender spot for cold AIR. Please don't attach a shop vac funnel to the front end!
