Just to seal it off from the engine heat , foam helps seal between the plate and the hood

Cool wherebdid u buy the foam

The grey is just some sheetmetal I cut and painted, the dark foam is just canopy tape. I was going to use that spit plumbing pipe insulation but home hardware was closed

Looks like a sound design,should make at least a bit of a difference.

Those are a love hate thing , and I hate em. Dont need one for around hear either. I just have to find something like this: http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/T-H-Marine-Sure-Seal-Deck-Plate.aspx?a=260414&kwtid=206772 locally to install in the hood for fair weather days, let a little more air at the filter.

I did a cowl snorkel on 4runner 86 dont know how much room
is in a xj
pretty tite in 4rnr barely clears wiper linkage
hood hits it slightly when opening
if you do decide to build one
dont be a dumass like me
check every fitment issue before makin holes
realy sucks when window sqwirter sprays in snorkel@$&!*DOH[1b]
outher wise works great[36] [36] [36]
