Never liked the look of the stock airbox (too Hooverish) and I didn't like the look of the K&Ns that the car came to me with.

So I grabbed some spare aluminum sheet, some 5/16-18 button head screws, some trim, and a Subaru element from RockAuto and voila, for about $50 and a couple hours of time, I ended up with this . . .

Looks nice; just wondering why the carb. tops are 90 degrees from where they would normally be?

I've only had the car for a few months and they were on it that way before I rebuilt them. I looked inside and didn't see how that position made a difference. The diaphragm tab is in the slot of the body.

If you pull the top off you will notice the 2 holes in the bottom of the piston; if they are closest to the butterfly, the response time for acceleration will be faster. You can "live" with the orientation in any of the 4 positions, but the response time (greatest "vacuum" or pressure differential) will be quickest in the 2 holes to the rear of the opening.

Thank you!
As I was going to put in new needles tomorrow, I will put them back on in the correct direction.
