300 TDI air box

I'm looking for a air box to use on my 109. It has a Mercedes diesel and I would like to adapt a rover air box that I can then attach a snorkel to. I'm currently using a 3.9 rangie air box that I modified to work. But saw the 300 TDI one and liked it much better.
I'm thinking of mounting it under my wing , I think Teri Ann has one mounted under the wing on her 109. I think this is where my friend got the idea on the 300 TDI unit.

Thanks Ed

Check out the Donaldson air cleaner they put on the Wolf trucks. Doug and Michele turned me onto it. Has two stage filter and seals up better than the stock 300tdi air cleaner

That's way nice.. Can I get a part number by chance for that unit.

The 300 gets its air flow from the side vent, rh fender, via a couple hoses and a dump valve. the hose comes in at the bottom and then exits from the rear. If you have figured out how you are going to do your air intake you may be able to find a V-8 air canister easier.

I use a Donaldson air cleaner and prefilter that handles the airflow of my 5.0L V8.

The canister is well sealed and is mounted on the underside of my right wing. The inlet and outlet are located at the same end of the filter and are 90 degrees to each other. The outlet is aimed straight at the engine.

The prefilter is specified to have at least 6 inches clearance from the bottom surface. I decided not to have a long filter and to put the precleaner directly above the filter inlet sith a straight shot down. I've noticed that most of the dust kicked up by the tyres stays below the wing tops and didn't want a lot of plumbing obstructing the front right of my windscreen. I was also trying for the most efficient plumbing that I could do with a minimum of bends.

Note that my truck has Defender outer wing panels and you can barely see the bottom of the air filter. There is lots of space between the air filter and the 33 inch dia front tyres.

The filter element withdraws from the front. The filter is mounted back far enough for the filter to be changed without taking the enclosure off the truck.

Thanks everyone for your replies!
TerriAnn thanks for the photos and the explanation on the install, that is what I would like to do for my air filter. How close does the tire get to the filter housing during articulation.
Can anyone share where I can buy one of these units.

Cheers Ed

This is a reply to a private message asking for details. I thought I would share what I have.

Sorry I did not keep the part number for the Donaldson filter or prefilter. I poured over the Donaldson filter web site. I used their formulas to determine the flow that I needed then went window shopping for a horizontal mount filter that had intake and outlet at the same side 90 degrees apart in the correct direction.

Prefilters need a minimum airflow to work and have a maximum airflow where they start restricting intake air. Again I used their formula for the RPM range my engine usually runs (750 RPM - 3000 RPM with most driving between 1800 - 2700 RPM) Then I chose a prefilter that worked in that RPM range and had the same pipe diameter as the filter inlet.

The canister filter came with mounting hoops. All I needed to do is rotate them in the orientation I wanted, figure where to mount it and still have clearance for replacing the filter element and drill holes in the wing top for the bolts. Note I have wing top protectors which provides extra strength and stiffness for supporting the filter.

The static distance between the bottom of the filter and the the top of the 33.3" dia mud terrains is 6 inches. There is no rubbing marks on the underside of the filter and the front of my truck has been airborne so it has seen maximum upward articulation at landing.

This is with stock Series suspension, extended front shackles and springs picked to match the front axle weight.
