Well, I fianlly went out yesterday bought a filter and the PVC pieces I needed. Filter was a cheap $15 Pep Boys deal. I got a small piece of 3" PVC pipe from Home Depot. They wanted me to buy the whole 10' pipe.. found a small piece in the back they marked it down to $2. I bought a 3" 45 degree elbow and a 3" to 2" adapter so thew filter would fit. I still have to get a clamp to hold the filter on as it's just sitting there right now. I laid the canister on it's side because many people said they did it with no problems. here is one pic I'll get more tomarrow... I'm gonna paint it black too.

Try to keep the canister up. As i can see on your pic, the 45° is laying on the radiator hose. have the 45 up, and the cheap filter will plunge down, squeezing between the washer fluid and the canister up.

check my pics.




even mine could be more up (the 45 pipe), I had to change a headlight some hours ago..

btw did you put a breather on the PCV air inlet on passenger side valve cover?

It's actually not touching the hose. Is there a good reason to keep the canister upright?

Fuel fume condense at the bottom. then its resend to intake throught the a tube in the middle. if you move the can 180°, you render process useless

I've read that too, but doesn't the 94-96 use an inverted mount for their canister? Maybe it's a different design. So much for my plans to relocate the canister so I can put a cold air box in.

BTW, the 94-96 washer fluid tank moves a couple inches rearward for more air filter clearance. I have one on mine. How do you keep the PVC off the radiator hose though? I've given up and just put a giant piece of split loom on the hose to protect it.

I have relocated the canister on my 93 LO3. Its sits just under its original place bolted to the plastic baffle for the bumper. I beefed up the baffle with some srcap metal and extented the hoses and wires for the soilnoid. I could have made a custom bracket and hang it from the frame, but its still doing good now with over a year on it.

It leaves a nice open space far a custom air box to be made!
