Best air intake on a 91 Chevy?
I took off my stock air intake setup which had a rubber ovalish tube going over to the fender and just put a regular bare air cleaner on but now I'm thinking that although it may have been restrictive, maybe it was actually better sucking air from the fender. Anyone have any input on this? Obviously the air in the center of the engine bay will be hotter than the air in the fender. What's the best intake setup on a 88-98 chevy pickup?

I've seen dryer duct tube run out to the radiator apron; there may even be a production model out there.
That tube that runs to the fender has another tube, in front of the battery, that screws into the radiator support. Take out your parking light and you'll see it. I thought about cutting a hole in the grill, just below the light, to direct air right in, but never did it.
On my '98 Sierra, I used stainless duct tape inside the fender and smoothed all the nooks n' crannies to send as much air as possible to the cleaner - I think it made more difference in my mind than it really did.
Thats all I have,

K&N, reworked cai, Thrush cat-backs
Vinyl, cranks, floor shift, and rear air!
