Not that hot at all ..makes a good hand warmer though :Flame:. The muffler is so big and aluminized with dual outlets it dissapates well...

Hey Greg, I'm pretty much a neighbor to you (I'm in Sherwood).

I would love to see the hatch sometime and check out some of your wheelin' places! My Forester is wanting some mud really bad.

Little update to continue this thread being the new owner of legendary Scooby Climbs 84' Subaru GL...

I went with the:
K&N Apollo Cold Air Intake Systems Universal

&

Stone For 96-03 Toyota 90 series Landcruiser Prado Snorkel Air Intake Snorkeling


Most challenging part was getting everything to fit and find the proper adapters, but I found some at the local hardware store and in my tool box.


Also had to reroute one of the hoses from the idle control valve and had to relocate one of the plastic fittings on the intake piping.

They say that the intake head is designed to be in forward position with escape channels that the ram air forces the dissipated water particles to drain from, but I don't trust it and drive with it faced aft just in case. Other wise, I have not integrated a drain hole yet. As long as I periodically clean the air filter it should be fine.


Anyways enjoy the pictures!:banana:


Bryan

For those wondering why I sold my beloved hatchie..
It came down to safety with my son riding in the back.
As well as needing space for multi day wheel in trips.

Bryan is a good friend and was the perfect candidate for sharing the love of the hatchie.
In fact he got his first taste of wheelin in it.

Ride on...
