I got this snorkel type breather/air cleaner with my 80 but I'm thinking about using it on the 68
I will have to sand and paint the middle of it from the 80s hood rubbing on it.
Which way would you go?:dontknow:
Old school with the Yellow Rose decal

or modern (snorkel) type?

Ya'll tell me.

Tough call. I like them both, BUT I think I like the old school look for the Yellow Rose a little more. Will that snorkel set up fit on mine? and if so, wanna sell it?

That two sided thing looks like it's just asking for some heated air coming from the exhaust. That would be good on a cold morning, after that, not so much.

Go old school. Those filters will most definitely be sucking in some real heat off the manifolds/headers. Now if you put some hoses on and ran it like an old school W30 442, that might work!!!

I,d highly consider the twin snorkel, BUT I'd add tubing to get the 2 air filters up front, possibly into the front fenderwells & out of plain sight where they cold get true cold air. Cold as texas ambient temp at least.. Spectre is the main supplier of what you'd need.

If the new school was a RAMJET that would increase air flow id say go with that... but its just a dual short ram cold air intake.. Booooooo... it looks like a teenagers car... was that a japanese V8 in it? :poke: is it? ......... is it reallly :poke:

Old school definitely. The only way the dual snorkel would even benifit you would be if you ran dual hoses to the grill. And that wouldnt be the clean look your shootin for on an older cruck. Just my opinion.
