    Great idea elwesso. Only problem I see is how to do it I don't drive in the rain, there is a filter to protect from "rock induction" and it wasn't really my choice to have the filter that low. That's just the way the piping that I had already happened to be. Sorry. I think it's a fabulous setup for what it cost me (5 bucks). Please don't talk to me about spending more money on the intake, unless you want to donate me the money

    Ha!

    Does the metal work of the car itself prohibit you from moving the filter up and out of the way? Maybe simply shortening the pipe somehow will allow you to move the physical filter up and farther out of harm's way...unless of course the car itself and the size of the filter is prohibiting you from moving it up farther. It's true that a rock may not get through the filter that way, but it would suck to hit a piece of debris (even as small as a pebble) at 60 mph and dent the filter badly.

    Elwesso.
    I just noticed where you live. Used to love your racetrack in Anderson. It was a noisy 'Bullring' and the Hoosier 400 would make us all deaf. This was earlydays of the ASA; late 70's.

    Love the tracks in Indiana. Winchester was ,and probably still is.......... .Awesome!

    ....and I agree with what KC said.

    Anderson speedway, ah yes. Been there many times. I usually go to the little 500, which is a race with midget cars. Also, i have been to the figure 8, that is fun to watch.

    ANYWAY, BACK ON TOPIC.......
