Anybody Using A Weber Remote Air Cleaner?


1972_Targa

Recommended Posts

The main advantage for this setup would be to pull cool air from the car's front end rather than hot air from the engine compartment.  And using the pictured setup would mean you'd have to find a place for the filter somewher between the grille and radiator.  You're also creating a sharp right-hand turn for the air's path into the carb, somewhat restrictive.

 

The factory air cleaner/snorkel pulls in cool outside air as installed, and adapting a stock air cleaner to the Weber is a few minutes work with tinsnips or a Dremel tool.  So you're not gaining anything....IMHO

Mike, thanks. Sage advice as always. Guess I was groping around for something a little different, instead of the tried and true (maybe a bit too different for different's sake!). 

 

Had your suggested set-up on a 1970 2002 a few years ago, and yes, it worked beautifully. Sat on top of one of the legendary Dave Cruse's last motors. Rest in peace, Dave...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
