Ram Air Intake - 67 Mustang

Do you know of anyone who makes a ram air intake for a 67 Mustang? I'm looking for the type where you don't have to cut a hole in the hood. A long time ago, I saw a Mustang where they removed the headlights and ran the air intakes up to the air cleaner through the holes. Do you know of anyone who makes this style or do you know how I would go about making it myself? Thanks for your input.

There is one clean way of doing this on an earlier chassis without having to open up the hood for fresh air;

This is the appearance when you open the hood;



This photo gives you an idea of the complete installation;



If you will notice, the intake tubes are plumbed into the front aprons (includes pickup tubes) for a better looking and less cluttered installation as opposed to the TBOLT setup. There is less interference with the FEAD and allows easier mainrenance. I have the parts illustration for the setup (85 FOX 5.0L carbed) and will show it once I figure out how to get it sized properly.

You can still buy this setup (used) or scrounge for a donor.

The one that comes in through the headlights is available at Crites restoration. It was the old Thunderbolt style, and they make reproductions.

Thanks for the info and the pictures! Woodz, I'll look into Crites.

Just as an introduction, I've been restoring my '67 Mustang for the past two years. I'm the original owner and my ride has 20,000 miles on it. It's a long process and I appreciate any input you guys can give me.

Can I use Ram Air and a nitrous oxide set-up together, or would this be a bad combination? If it's bad, why? Thanks again for your input. <----- (kind of looks like me!)
