Now this is just a thought I had when I found the snorkel to my stock air cleaner in my trunk (for some odd reason...) I have a 1966 Mustang w/ a 200ci inline 6. The engine was rebuilt using a 68 Falcon.

Now I was thinking "What if I custom fit a pipe to where the snorkel use to be, and gave it a cold air intake? After that I would just have to readjust the carburetor."

Now, am I thinking too radically? I know it would look silly in a classic car like mine, but the idea of combining modern-day intakes with my old-style air cleaner is just... enticing!

A cold air intake for a mustang is a open air filter.I wouldn't trust a import style one i seen too many that was low enough to suck in water.

If you really want to, Classic Inlines sells the carburetor cap needed to hook up a CAI, but I'd stick with an open element cleaner. I have one, and it's better than the snorkel. It looks like the GT style open element cleaner, but it's base is made for the one barrel carburetor.
