    Air box mods

    see a few are trying to increase air flow from the air box, after doing a bit
    of research I've come across this piece which will come out the top of the air box lid,
    and should allow plenty of room from the bonnet

    That looks very much like the plastic equivalent of the steel cobra head that PMC had fitted to his Patrol.
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    Sounds right and yes its called a Cobra head, I'm going to get a lid laser cut with a 3" hole in it
    and then see how the build goes from there

    BTW its rubber too

    getting a new lid cut from 316 stainless would you think 3/16 is thick enough,
    it will be using the original clips to hold it in place
