An original shaker lid is in nice condition as well. To complete the package, a new heavy duty air filter, period correct wing nut, a new filter breather with adapter, and a new reproduction breather tube are included.
The assembly is complemented with the complete fresh air ductwork specific to the 73-75 Trans Ams. The oval inlet fits inside the 6" snorkel, then connects with an NOS 4" vinyl clamped hose. This in turn connects to the early style elbow to triangle adapter complete with the bar bracket for support. This then connects to the fender duct on top of the inner fender liner.
