Default Re: Ineffective Air Cleaners

It is interesting with my Ranchero. It was a California car, and as such, they have stricter emission standards than the rest of America. On all other US State versions, the air cleaner ends at the snorkel in much the same way as the 450SEL does, drawing warm/hot air from the engine bay. My California version Ranchero however continues the snorkel through a concertina hose to a plastic duct that draws cold air from the front of the car beside the inner guard.
