1986 2.9 Ranger

I think I already know the answer to this, but I'll ask anyway. Does anyone make a cold air intake for my 1986 2.9 ranger? It looks like it wouldn't be that hard to make something that would fit. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with one this old?

I made something up for my 89 f150. Your not going to find a nice kit for your vehicle, your cheaper off building one up yourself.

On my 87 ranger the intake on the air box goes right behind the grille. So its already got a CAI stock. I bet if you just take the heat riser off the passenger side exhaust manifold, get a new air filter or even a high performance air filter, and wrap a bit of that insulation tape over the main intake tube, it would preform just the same as a CAI.
