Dual Battery Air Box trouble

Unread post by jase12 » January 30th, 2013, 6:35 pm

Hi every one i have got every thing i need for the duel battery part from a surf air box. I have tried for the past couple of week to locate one (ebay, and local wreckers) but to no luck. does any one know of another air box that would work? I found a pic of a 2001 hilux TD engine bay and the air box looks like it may work. has any one done this or have any suggestions.

any help would be great thanks.

I dont know if any others will fit, but try searching for specialist wreckers,

Theres A hilux wrecker in Northern NSW (chindra) There are a couple of specialist import wreckers in Sydney?

I know A guy who bought A surf (not running) just to steel better parts for his hilux,

I had the same trouble myself and temporarily used a generic filter and housing off ebay, much like this one, http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/UNIVERSAL-CA ... 438wt_1037, till I could get my hands on a surf unit.
Where abouts are you at? If your anywhere near Newcastle or you can get here you can have mine to get you out of trouble till you find a surf unit.
