I have the old SBC setup with a Holley 750. I have always had the standard chrome pancake type air filter, but prefer to get "remote" air buy fitting some kind of remote kit with a KN or similar filter remotely. Anyone know of a kit, or similar i could fit?

Mainly need a cowl which will fit over the holley carb and then add tubing and a filter at the far end.

I get far too much heat in the engine compartment and so dont get any cold air into the carb.

F.C.

Procharger do what they call a carb bonnet which is basically a manifold that fits on top of your carb with a spigot for an air duct to attach to.
Not sure how performance of the carb is affected

The sites below claim to be uk dealers for Procharger.

Similar issue on our Noble P4 solved with a K+N cast alloy carb hat, flex tube and large cone filter. Worked for us. Regards.

Mr Smith does a rather nice rear clip alteration that can catch a bit more of the cold air flowing over the cockpit! Ask Wayne....talking of which, anyone know if he is still posting black comments (aka alive)?

KN851060 Shop around as some suppliers simply order on your behalf then add handling charge.

Thanks thumbup

Found it: http://www.knfilters.co.uk/plenum.aspx

although I am bit worried about this bit:

Note: The custom plenum is recommended for small displacement engines (less than 200 C.I.) or low revving V6-V8 engines. If the engine requires more than 45 sq. in. of filter area then the plenum should not be used because the carburetor would have to be re-jetted and a loss of high R.P.M. power will be the result.

Not big enough for me perhaps. I did wonder about the restriction potential of some of these hats, they mostly seem to be used in forced induction and not N/A.

According to Spectre my hat flows more than enough for 550hp and they do a larger one with 2 feeds if needed

Sounds like you need a twin feed as mentioned, these are normally available for 4X4 applications.

Sorry to resurrect this older topic, but the hotter weather got me thinking about a remote air filter again. I thought I would update this thread rather than start a new one..

majority of the carb hats I have come across have been for turbo/supercharger applications and always looked too restrictive (to me)

More googling has revealed:

http://www.airaid.com/U-Build-It_intake_systems.as...

That do a good value (ok plastic..) http://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/aid-200-100

or a rather nice (much) more expensive carbon one http://www.summitracing.com/int/parts/aid-100-525

Would it not be better/easier to get an air filter with a top entry like this:


and then make or buy a scoop that aligns the filter with the air intake hole (for the can am anyway...)

something like this?

but obviously made to match the clam. That would also help stop heat being sucked into the cabin.....

I fancy doing something like that.

Have a K&N stack with a Xtream topcover, with a phenolic carb spacer its very near the top vent. But I don't believe the top vent collect much air and I am pretty sure the carb is breathing the hot air swilling around in the engine bay. So I want to box a cone filter into the side pod
