If you find one, let me know. We don't have as restrictive emissions
requirements in Ohio, but I want to keep the hot air tube connected for the
Winter and I would imagine that would be one of your emissions requirements.
All these kits on the market seem to be setup for people who live in states
that have year round warm weather.

>we did the hole drilling trick on my dad's 94 4.0 and it does work.

I've been thinking about doing the hole drilling and was wondering if
you have problems with water getting in the air box? I figured that I would
cut holes in such a way that I could insert plugs for the winter (when I
don't want to bypass the hot air tube), but I am worried about the rain.

Thanks,
Tony

where do you live?? here in alabama, we got into the 30s regularly this
winter and i dont think it really acts much differently that without the
holes. you're still gonna get some of the warm air cause the tube is still
there... you just allow a way for the cool fresh air to get in...

i dont really see how you could get rain in there anyway, but with all the
ducting and the filter and all that to go through, i think you would have to
flood the airbox to do any damage at all. it's surrounded on the outside by
the coolant recovery and washer tanks, and the back side faces the firewall.
i think you would have to nearly submerge the truck to get water in there...
but i can check it out next time it rains...

later
