I finally got around to building Part I of my cold air intake. Simple, quick and easy and less than $10 bucks give you a cold air intake that works better than anything in the marketplace... Pics and writeup:

Looks interesting and like a smooth idea. But I don't know about off pavement use.

I would be interested into why you think this?

In fact I designed this for Off road use. The temps in the washes where I wheel here in the desert will run beyond 130+ in the summer and overheating is common. So is a drastic loss of power due to the much hotter, thus thinner air being drawn into the engine out of the engine bay itself.

In fact based upon todays driving, it is a "seat of pants" improvement and visually I confirmed with with my engine boost/vacuum gauge. I drove over 60 miles today between 9:30 and 4:15 almost all of the freeway. I noticed a pickup in response all the way thru the rpm band that I drove in. Mind you I am NOT saying the improvement is on the order of a magnitude or more. But it was noticable to me, with 70k miles and 5 years in the seat of my Jeep.

I expected nothing and in fact never gave it a thought of any improvement other than in the hottest days of summer where the temps are beyond 120+ here in the city and beyond 130 + in the washes of the desert where I wheel.

Yeah out in the dunes I could totally understand, and IO do really like it because my Jeep is also my DD, and in Southwest Florida its hotter the hadies somedays..

But our wheeling terrain is a tad different, with all types of mud & water. I was just thinking about that aspect of it.

For sure you would have to make some mods...Like I left the bottom open to capture cooler air coming up as your drive, might not work too good if you hitting and splashing water. Then it captures the air that passes thru and around the headlight. This may or may not be a viable option for you swampers???? It is not a straight shot , but then??? Dunno, didn't wheel much when I lived in Miami, I am a rocks guy.
