New Zoodad

I got an Idea for a new zoodad mod.

If someone has the money to do this then you may.

The idea is this, take the side vents from the 08-09 trucks. Put them on backwards so they are up at the front of the fenders. Cut the holes out of the fenders all the way through to the air filter. Add some pvc pipe to the inside of the fender to direct air to the air filter.

This would work with the side vents in the regular locations as well. just would not be as direct with the duct work.

Like I said this is an idea I think would work quite well. Let's hear yalls comments on it.

My physics tell me that the side vent size opposed to the amount of air our trucks suck up makes this mod superfluous, really.... Not saying it wouldnt help, just saying it probably wouldnt help enough to justify cutting holes in the body/running ductwork for em. This theory is totally dependent upon what type of intake one is putting this mod on. IE- For any "open element" Setup (6637 or the like) no. For a "Contained open element" (Ford AIS, Volant, AEM, KnN, ect..) Perhaps a little gain in flow would be seen. I can see it helping a stock box with a cone filter in it, however, coupled with the Zoodad.

It could help. I think having the 08 vents on the front of the fender would look pretty dumb however.

My idea is put the passanger side on the driverside and the driver side on the passanger side. So the curve will still match the fender well.

The idea of having th vent at the front of the fender is simple. The duct work would be straight to the filter and it would be a shorter distance then at the back of the fender.
