    Weber DGV questions

    I am installing a Weber DGV on my Sll 2.25. I hear that the stock oil bath air cleaner may not have sufficient air flow for the DGV. I am also running a raised air intake/snorkel to the oil bath air cleaner.
    My question: What are my options as far as running a higher flow air cleaner inline between my raised air intake assembly and the Weber DGV?

    Thank you in advance for your responses/ideas.

    A D90 or RRC should do for you.

    This is from a RRC.


    If you have an oil bath cleaner designed for a raised intake, I might be interested in it for my Lightweight.
    The one that looks like this is what I'm interested in:

    Tom,

    I modified my stock oil bath air cleaner for the raised air intake. I tried to source an original oil bath designed for an oil bath, but no luck. Fairly easy modification, though.

    Matt, I got a DGV and Pierce manifold from Daniel which I installed on my SII. Just have the typical K&N-style open-sided filter on it now but want to do something better. I have several of the RRC canister-type filter assemblies like the one Tom pictured above, I'll probably use one of them after fabricating a carb adapter. If you want to go that way as well, I can hook you up...

    Do you still have the Rochester on that 109 which I installed for Steven? It came off my SII when I installed the above-mentioned Weber DGV. Funny how things kinda go around...

    Unfortunately, I don't really know all that much about it. I saw it at Eric's a couple of times before Steven bought it, and then at Steven's when I worked on it. Eric would be the guy to ask...he goes by NorCal Relics here on the site. Hasn't been posting much lately though. I'll probably see him before too long and ask him if you don't get a hold of him before then.
