Do you guys know if there are any aftermarket cold air intakes for an 86 XT? Or would I have to go custom? What would that entail? Any help would be great.

You can make a very good one yourself. Go to Ebay and get item 2463495714 for about $20. This is a filter adapter that will bolt directly to your MAF and gives you a K&N style (will also work with actual K&N filter) filter. After that you can get a sheet of aluminum at Home Depot and make a heat shield.

I know this fits the XT6 MAF from personal experience, I cannot comment for certain on other MAFs.

Note: The actual adapter has a clean airflow and does not look like the one in the pic.

i was looking at my GL10 turbo and the problem with this kit is that filter would go thru the fender. I am going to look at a number of items i have at work and see if i can rig something up

Another thing you must consider is the support bracket for the MAF.
As the airbox now is the mounting support.

I use a flat plate of Al with a 90 deg break formed lip
and bolt it to the frame below the MAF.

Scott's idea of the AL flashing or other partition
is an excellent sugg.
The rad fan blows
directly into this area.

The inner fender opening can be opened
by removing the muffler under the
plastic inner liner.

Just be sure you get THAT Toyota Previa maf adapter. I believe their are two different ones.

There's the one Subarubrat is recommending--->

And one I recently purchased for my XT6--->

I purchased the one above believing the other once was restrictive due to the corners being squared and not rounded off. They both are for the Toyota Previa. I ended up having a hardware store drill out the holes I needed in the above maf and it works fine. But it wasn't a direct fit.

i picked up a plate similiar to those for my 89 GL-10 from auto zone for $15, and it bolts right up. another $5 for some plastic crinkly tube stuff, and $50 for a K&N filter.

They sell adapter plates at Autozone? :mad: I wish I would've known about this. Thanks! Good info!
