Fresh (Cold) Air Intake D-90

O.K. so I have finished some of the fabrication for putting fresh intake (or kinda cold air indution) on the 94 D-90. I still need to fabricate the rear part of the box. If anyone wants pictures let me know (PM me) as I would welcome the feedback (not too critical on my fragile ego).
Yes I know my image in my signature is not popping up as I just read that AOL is no longer hosting pictures. Need to find a new source. Maybe I will do like the young-ins and create a my-space page.

I find the easiest way is to open an online photoalbum, download your pics and then copy the pics to your post here. I use photobucket.

just hit "post reply" and scroll down to "additional options" and hit "manage attachments"

you can then upload files by browsing to your folder or desktop.

just make sure you resize the pics to a reasonable size.

pictures

Attached are pictures of the work in process. The 3 inch tube coming in from the right of the frame (or bottom depending on the picture) is 3 inch aluminum duct that is attached to a vent hole between the 2 parking lights on the LRX grill surrond.
If you live in a wet climate, you could always get the 1997 D-90 block off vent cover if you are worried about you filter getting soaked.

John, Thanks so much on the information.

Question

Looks interesting. How did you mount the MAF?

Since I used a air hose out of a classic the MAF is pretty much sandwiched in front of the master cylinder. I think I will eventually get to the point of creating a mount. I purchased a K&N filter that is 6 inches wide, a 3 inch inlet (which should be a little bigger than 3) and tampering down to 5. All of the sheet metal was purchased from Home Depot.
