Can some of you post some pics of your 87 k&n cone filter install - I'd like to get some ideas of how yours came out...

Well - I will answer my own post - I removed all the old stuff - I cut down the vam mounting plate - installed k&n on the vam - drilled new holes in mounting plate to attach vam mounting to the fender - The k&n fits nicely with no bending or compression on the firewall.

I'll try to get some pics of mine up. I used 3" F350 I/C pipes to mount it under the headlight. I had my 6" cone down by the air dams but it got very dirty very fast. I order a bigger cone (5" x 8") and it fits great and doesn't pick up any dirt. I also still use the carbon canister inlet elbow.

Is there any reason to, besides appeasing the smog nazis, who to the best of my knowledge don't like open filters for some reason?

My K&N is mounted in front of the radiator. I used a piece of air cleaner hose from the parts store (with a metal spiral inside to prevent collapse) and a short piece of metal duct to join that to the K&N. I also used a 3" duct hanger from the hardware store to help support the filter.

Well, pretty much the only reason I leave it connected is because a guy at work I know said he had the carbon canister disconnected and he could smell fuel and shit from inside the car. I figure I'll just leave it connected, it's not hurting anything.

Also, with my setup, I had to make a 90 degree turn and I figure, if I use this, I won't have to buy anything else and I can hook up the CC, so it was easier to just use that.

Ooops...that just reminded me that I forgot to hook mine Carb Can hose back up to something !

I have my K&N in front of the Rad now too (behind where the pass side fog light USED to be). I'll just run a piece of PVC with a 1" nipple before the K&N and attach the Carb Can hose to that.
