    Default Over the Rad air induction

    Just about finished, but I still need a way to get cold air to the intake with some kind of over-the-radiator duct.

    Any ideas for sourcing such a part?

    Build it out of cardboard, and take it to a welder to have fabricated.

    a lot of mitsu's have over rad intake ducting like that. I believe it was the first gen ralliart's that had a bigger one than some of the rest. I think my Outlander's is still laying around somewhere

    If you could find it, I'd appreciate having a look.

    I left it in place thinking it might help re-direct some airflow around the battery but it probably is pointless. I tried to get a CAI for this thing but even though it is essentially an overweight AWD lancer the engine bay is re-arranged enough that the CAI's are not cross compatible. I don't even think I can make something like a fender well intake work without a battery re-lcoate and I'm not ready for a project like that.

    Compared to the other images this may not be quite the same as what you meant.

    Thanks for the image. I have to get my air filter on the front side of the radiator.
