Raised Air Intake fitment

I am looking to adapt a Mantec style TDI raised air intake to the Goat. I figure I could install the side vent style through the top of the wing instead. My Mansfield heater uses the side vent now. Does anyone know or have a photo of the inside the panel orientation?

Kevin do you already have this intake already? If not, why don't you just get the Mantec version that goes through the top driver side vent?

Because it costs 40% more and I can get a Paddocks one for 130 bucks.

I hope this helps. Just as an FYI, RN sells the part that you would attach to the top of the vent for $120. (Part# 1002/04)

I used Southdown's (from UK - on UK eBay) hose and rubber wing flange for my snorkle and had a muffler shop cut and bend the upper intake pipe. I then added a Centri Pre-cleaner and had both powder coated. I works great and was very reasonable. Here is the title of original thread and there are pictures towards the end.
I didn't notice that I had two "u"s and one "t" for cutting.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like a Southdown and a D1 air cleaner box will work nicely.
