    Nathan... What's your take on adding the air ducting? And, also, do you have to get the whole splash pan assembly or will just the induction tube work?

    Notice the vent in the newer panel that has the ducting. Looks to me like you need it all plus the fasteners for the ducting.

    Yep.....I looked into getting one when they first offered them for sale, but didn't think it would really do much for me and I hated the idea of having to remove it every time for an oil change.

    I remove my fan with each oil change and clean/lube it up real good.
