Basically, I just envisioned what I wanted to do, and started ordering
HVAC stuff, air intake pipe and boots from ebay and Amazon, and I did a hatchet and epoxy fabrication job on an airbox out of a truck from the wrecking yard.
If you are not seriously into doing your own fabrication on stuff, I wouldn't recommend it. But if you like The Journey of doing stuff like this, then it will be your own reward! Despite the Critics and Naysayers....
I did it for 2 reasons, mostly for Ram Air (since the vans don't have intercoolers), and because I wanted my rig to look like a Hot Wheel or Matchbox. It is a toy, after all! lol Pretty tired of weak minded people telling me that I can't drive my rig through deep enough water to need it. DUH!
Anyways, that is the jist of it.

Can you tell us more about the snorkel on it. I assume you made it yourselve. I am very interested
