Hey,

My stock air box recently broke on the side so it's not on tight anymore so I'm taking advantage to finally upgrade. I was going to get around to buying a open air box system but I'm not sure which one is the best bang for my buck.

I have an 86. Speaking of which, how many miles does everyones C4 have on their motor ? I'm at around 160,000k ( odometer stopped working a about 8 months ago along with my dash ).

Isn't the open air box just our original with the center gills cutout all way to the edges to just hold the filter on? That is was I am gonna do to my 91 when it starts run right and just replace the filter with a K&N.

Instead, I drilled 39, 3/4 inch holes in mine and inserted plastic groments in the holes to make it look cleaner. If you could see the front, the holes on the sides are offset between the ones in the front. I wanted to do something different against the norm.:devil:

That's a cool idea. How did it turn out ?

That's exactly what it is. I have a K&N Air Filter, too. The open lid was a mod that I've been wanting too do but I neglected it for a little while... Now that my air box left screw hole has broken off from the base, I'm going to fix it.

what's wrong with your 91 ?

I've had a lot of compliments on it. I included a picture with the reply I posted. Also there is one in MY PHOTOS.
