another small temporary air filter

This one was about $19 at advance auto parts in south florida.
I taped off the inside and outside elements real good and then had to cut the hole in the bottom bigger to fit on the CIS.
Luckily the only area on top to drill holes for the mounting screws without going through the filter element lined up just right.

Then I used a large rubber O-ring made for holding the fiberglass battery side covers on a mid 70's BMW motorcycycle rubber band style, fit just right under it to help make an air seal against the bottom of it and the slightly recessed CIS air filter flange.

I used small breather filters on the gas tank vent hose and oil tank breather hose and my car has headers and the aftermarket turbo sump tank doesn't have a vent hose so that ones gone.

This is just temporary until I get my cars AFR's somewhere near right if thats possible... because it doesn't flow or filter air anywhere near as well as the factory air cleaner/silencer housing.
