Air Compressor, Snorkel, Intake Question...
So, I purchased a rather good sized air compressor that I intend on installing for onboard air. I would also like to install a Mantec Snorkel on my NAS110.
I have the engine out, so I can't exactly determine the space I have in the engine bay right now and I am trying to find a location to mount the compressor to avoid it being super loud or getting soaked every time the vehicle fords a river.
I thought of building a box under the rear floor that was accessed through a Marine Hatch, but I fear the compressor is too tall and the box would have to hang awfully low and I don't want to reduce ground clearance or create an eye-sore.
It struck me that I could possibly mount it to the Bulkhead in place of the air cleaner assy, but then I need to relocate that. Is there a smaller option to replace the stock air box so I can run the intake straight from the Plenum to the wing top to mount to the snorkel? I need to include the MAF also, so I think I need a smaller air filter assy, but I don't know where I could get one. Maybe make a custom one? What does anyone think of this setup?
Looking for suggestions or other people's solutions here. For what it's worth, I purchased the Puma 12v compressor off ebay. It has pretty good CFM, which is why I went with it. I plan to remove the compressor from the tank and mount a remote tank to the frame on the passenger side to increase the air capacity.
