Re: Air Intake, what are you guys using on your swaps?

Kept mine pretty simple. Less than a $100.

It does say fits Silverado. The elbow is tight on one side so you have to be sure you orient it correctly. Here is the pic of it near the fan. I dont know what mounts I have so cant confirm engine placement. I have about an inch clearance between elbow and fan.

Thanks for the pictures..My fan is in the shroud by an inch or 2. I will have to check that out. It just might fit.

Re: Air Intake, what are you guys using on your swaps?

I have always been taught that for maximum efficiency, the ideal placement of the fan is half in, half out of the shroud.

I had to relocate mine to the driver's side, and made my own using 4" aluminum piping.
