Options for engine fresh air ducting


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there are some alternatives to the OEM air ducting that goes from the radiator section into the body cavity. I was thinking that a 3” brake duct tube might work, it would just be a matter of figuring out some mounts for the chassis.

 

anyone do this before? Or have a set for sale 😐.

 

maybe I’ll have to listen to captain’ and start working with composites.

Edit - misunderstood the goal.

I’ve seen those; $200 is so expensive for that piece. 😔

i saw this online, but the mounting still has me a bit confused, it looks like a 3” duct can be used.

I should have gotten into the rock collection hobby instead.

Just realized that I got confused by the title.  "engine fresh air ducting".  Engine's got nothing to do with it, right?

If a person really studied why Nissan put all that work and parts in to creating a special path for the air to the side vents...they'd probably still end up not understanding.  If you ran a tube up the cowl air source, where the fresh air for the heating/cooling system enters, you'd have high pressure fresh air directly to the vents.  Might not even need the large diameter because it will be pressurized while driving.
