Air Intake Piping

Hi guys, new to the forum. Just picked up a '90 All-trac and it will be my focus for the next year as I've wanted this for years. Anyway, the first intake pipe coming out of the air filter is broken -- cracked at one end and small "Y" that goes back (I think to the PCV) is broken off -- there is no way to clamp the smaller tube back onto the intake pipe.

2 Questions: First, is there anywhere I can buy a straight up replacement for the broken intake pipe? Second, should I look at replacing the intake with a cold-air intake/upgraded intake?

Thanks

hi, welcome. Congrats on the purchase! Please create a thread with pictures in the "my project" section so we can all ogle at another survivor :D

This website has a couple different replacement options, including a kit that also replaces the couplers between the turbo, the intercooler, and the throttle body:
Unfortunately there aren't any off-the-shelf options for cold air intakes due to our packed engine bays. It's possible to implement such measures (I personally have), but it's a DIY job and often involves moving the battery to the trunk in order to create space.
happy motoring!

Thanks Grip! Yes, I figured the space would be a problem for a cold air intake. The link you provided is precisely what I was looking for! Many Thanks!

I actually suspect that the silicon hoses on the gt4play website are stoney parts.
Source: I ordered the cooling kit from gt4play and it's stamped with the stoney logo.

So for cold air, what I'm doing is a custom carbon fiber pipe but it REQUIRES a smaller battery. The before space constraints cause many to trunk mount or reduce the battery size in order to use that space for the filter. This brings me to the main point. You can make a custom kit with few parts or this exists: https://www.tdi-plc.com/product/hks-super-power-flow-induction-kit-st185/ Please note the HKS filter is famous for filtering bad and being eaten by the turbo. A cone filter style requires an adapter from the square part found on the MAF sensor box thing. I've seen people that run just the adapter then any cone that works/fits. On Roreri's build he did something like this. https://www.alltrac.net/index.php?threads/roreri-a-jdm-1992-st185h-blmvz.54012/ If you are more inclined on more 'racecar' style/build this also is a great forum; https://www.alltrac.net/mods/customintake.html.
Either way there are no 'kits' besides the one above. You have to make it. If you would like and are willing to wait once I'm done building mine I'll posting a how-to and or maybe be willing to fabricate multiple intake tubes if people are interested
