If you're referring to the '74-'76 stock filter housing, it may rub against the hood.

It is usually mounted with an aluminum adapter piece, that goes between the filter housing and the carb. This adapter raises the filter a good amount. Now if you have a plastic spacer between the carb base and the intake manifold, it raises everything up even more.

I have seen '02s with no base spacer or even a small one, with the later-style stock air filter housing modified so that it bolts directly onto the top of the Weber. Sometimes even this will rub the hood, other times not. Sounds like the easiest way to get cold air.

I think the later stock airfilter housing has 3-4 little mounting points on the perimeter of the bottom of it. It might help to use those if possible, to keep the housing solidly mounted.

: Why don't you go to your nearest '02 parts house and buy a used stock air filter housing and a length of rubber flex hose. The '02 body already has a sheetmetal tube attachment (next to the passenger side of the radiator) for the warm/cold air feed. Get rid of the warm air valve and you have instand cold air.
