Re: Where to Buy Air Cleaner Housing Top Securing Clip?

I wonder how drivability will suffer without the warm up ait hose? My old VWs have a warm up hose, my old Triumph does too. I will be doing a sub freezing Death Valley trip this winter in the XJ.

If the warm up hose is not needed for drivability, I can leave it off except for smog testing, use the good tight sealing later air box for all my dusty trips, and the leaky but warm air equiped air box for testing.

I am using my air box top, as it has provision for the valve cover breather hoses.

Anyone have an early XJ with warm up hoses, and knows how she runs with hose deleted?
