In Reply to: Cold air intake for downdraft weber carbs on '02s posted by Dahveed on March 12, 2000 at 21:00:16:
: Top End Performance sells a cold-air induction device for Weber Downdraft carbs, listed on their website:
: The page takes a couple minutes to load. Go to the bottom of the page, on the left, where it says "carburetor and air cleaner adapters".
: It's basically what I want: something to enclose the top of the Weber and have one or two (they sell both) outlets for intake tubing that connects to a remote filter.
: I called Steve at TEP and he said he doesn't recommend using them (even the dual-snorkel one) as he says it doesn't flow enough air. He said it should only be used for forced induction (blower/turbo) use only.
: Somehow I just don't believe him, and will probably buy it one day, with both single and dual-snorkle top covers, and experiment with it myself. I hope it's not too good to be true...

Dave, Take a look at the K&N catalog at your local supplier, I think you'll find these items in it. Can't comment on the flowage claims or detractions.
