    11' RXT-X aS Kanaflex Intake question

    I'm in the process of installing a 4" kanaflex intake on my TX-X aS and was wondering if any had ever been successful in removing the front intake tube that runs next to the main suspension. Here is a picture:



    In the top left corner is the original intake tubing. I can't find a way to get it out. I'm debating on trying to cut it into pieces to get it out but would like to keep it together if all possible. Anyone gotten it out before?

    If I remember correctly, that elbow has a sort of 'kanaflex' pipe attached to it next to the suspension... If you unbolt the 4 screws holding the shock absorber frame, the shock and spring assembly comes out. Then you can disconnect the pipe on the front of the elbow and the elbow comes out.

    I ran my 4 inch setup following the OEM original intake shape. It works...

    The airbox tube that you are asking about runs underneath the whole shock mount and you would have to remove the whole suspension to get it out....

    I don't want to disagree with you, but from memory I was able to pull that plastic formed elbow out once I removed he shock + springs.
    Its 4 bolts to undo the shock bottom mount, when those bolts are removed, the shock, upper plate, springs etc all come out by hand.

    Are you talking about the main suspension assembly that holds the top deck on?

    No. You have to remove the top deck to get to the shock assembly 4 bolts.

    Re: 11' RXT-X aS Kanaflex Intake question

    Ugh that's what I thought. I've been able to do everything I need to do by lifting the rear suspension. I took the deck off once but do not want to go that again. Lol.

    The hardest part was getting the deck back on. Would be easier if I had a hoist to lower the deck down.

    I will post a picture of how I set up the intake.

    Surprise us

    I still think the OEM routing but with 4 inch and filter fits well.
    The pipe needs a little squashing to fit under the 'turtle shell' at the front.

    Yeap. That's how I originslly planned on running it but wasnt able to get the filter to fit in there. I decided to use a 9" AEM dry flow filter on it. Got a killer deal on the 9"er so thats only reason for it being so big. I ran the AEM dry flow on my 600hp Lexus and they work great. Another plus is that is completely rubber so no chance of any rust occurring. :thumbup:

    Hmmm... Thats a big filter
    I think I ended up getting a 4 inch "stubby" or short filter from KnN. It fits but final assembly had to be done with the filter in place past the engine/hull first.
