Air inlet relocation

So my day off consisted of a new project I wanted to do. I got the inspiration from TJnBC and one of his pics of a cone filter. I went to gary's auto to scout out a TJ air inlet pipe and came away with a throttle body spacer to boot. From start to finish this project was under $80.00




The only problem I came across was that I didnt take into consideration the height of the TJ hood and the hood wouldn't close properly so this wasn't a direct bolt on. Instead I flipped the assembly and cut the TJ pipe and cut in the stock XJ throttle body flex pipe. Some creative routing was needed for the PCV valve and I also had to angle the piping towards the firewall to clear my oil
/trans dipstick



I know I will lose my cold air intake BUT I gain almost 6 inches of air inlet height over the lowest point of the stock airbox and I now have room for a second battery project.



Treated the filter some oil and added the dirt sock. the assembly still needs a solid bracket mount and not just a zip tie but at least it's not flopping around

Nice, Tried to find pics of mine but I ran mine through the cowl(drilled through the oil filter sticker) and stuck a cone filter in the cowl. When you pull the wipers off and the cowl cover the drivers side is open but passenger side is solid so put the filter on passenger side and water doesnt get on it. And its full cold air

the big one allows re-burn of blow by gasses via pcv valve . if you disconnect it just vents into the atmosphere is all.you can pull the pipe at the valve cover and put in a small filter plug as it does shoot a little oil at high rpm.
