DIY intake questions?

I have an early 99 and the intake box has broken tabs on it and I don't trust the sealing capabilities of it, wanting to do a DIY intake for it and was hoping to come up with a parts list and possibly instructions to make it go a bit smoother.

Here you go.

DIY Intake

This is in the Tech section under 7.3 Mod Help. I bought an S&D filter rather than the Napa one. Works great.

Cheers

I just bought the entire kit from Riffraff, I went all over hell's half acre looking for a piece of 4in piping that would work and couldn't find it anywhere around here; turns out there are a million Subaru and Hybrid repair shops around here but almost no truck/RV places.

I got the truck done this week, ended up going to the local boubins muffler shop and got a 4 in exh pipe that had a 45 bend in it and cut it to fit my application then I drilled a hole in it and welded a 1/8th in female pipe bung on it and installed a fleetgaurd filterminder, the whole setup is pretty nifty, better filter without the junk airbox, I like it a lot sounds pretty neat too, its my gpas truck and he thinks it sounds cool too, satisfied customer is all I care haha thanks for the help guys!

The DIY does sound great, especially on an early 99 with the WW screaming.

BTW, I see in your sig you have an 84 300D. I've had a ton of the 123's and 126's and, IMO, they are hands-down the finest automobiles ever made. Nothing can touch their durability and reliability, I LOVE my truck but if I had to hop in a car and drive across Africa, it would be a 300d. How many miles does it have?

Lol I absolutely love my 300D, it is kind of my pride and joy, its my work car, its got 222000 on the clock and runs like a top, I removed the factory intake on it as well and have a similiar DIY intake on it too, lol that little turbo screams! I also got the wastegate plugged and the aneroid screw turned up on the injection pump as well, I love it!
