    I am wanting to use the original style black wrinkle finish unrestricted air cleaner for my 340 FiTech build. Who sells is and will it fit my throttle body? Thanks for any advice..

    You could probably modify the base to fit over the unit.

    Do you have the air cleaner or are you looking for one?

    I am doing a 318 with the FI Tech myself and in a 66 A-body.
    The factory air cleaner does not fit under the hood. I went with the base plate from Jegs for a Mr. Gasket 10" x 2" Chrome cheap air cleaner. But had to modify the top cover and use the 2" air cleaner element in the kit.
    The return line sits too high up and hits most air cleaners. Its a very tight fit as the FI injection set up is actually taller than a std carb. 5-1/8" air horn I believe.
    Also Note: I am running an air compressor from Vintage Air for the engine so a 14" air cleaner will not clear the compressor.

      Those air cleaners are priced out of this world. I've seen them at swap meets, but guys are asking $300 and up.

      There's been a few on Epay lately, pricey, as others have said. There was a bunch of them at Carlisle a few years ago, seems like everyone was letting one go.

      Bummer, sounds like I'm late to the party. Pay pay pay, thats what a Mopar enthusiast does right?
