found this rubber intake neck off an ea centre point injected 3.9 engine..

so put it to use as a typhoon 2nd intake mod.. -is bascally the same shape/diametre as the rubber typhoon snorkel..

here's the pics.... took 30 mins to take the lower box out.. trace the hole with a texta.. cut it out with the dremel.. fit the rubber neck through and re install the box back in...

saved the price of buying a typhoon lower air box and no need to spend the $64-75 plus postage on a genuine typhoon snorkel..

You've done that to a BA? I just mention it as i don't think it would get air in an EA-ED, or much in an EF/EL.

i used an instant touch super strong SUPER GLUE.. but BEWARE USING IT!!!! :shock:

the snorkel fits between the chassis and the bottom of the heaslight.. where the factory FPV snorkel gets it's air from...
