I'm looking for a non AC air box for my 1984 Ranger. 2.8L v6

I've removed most of the AC crap beside the condenser and the airbox since its the ductwork for the blower motor. I'm tired of having a big bulgy thing taking up space on the passenger side of my engine bay.

You might be able to patch and replace the wires if you can trace them. Is it a V6? Ive heard of that 2.9 having a carb intake.

I know, Ive heard of a carburetor intake manifold you can swap on that motor. Then you can put on a 4 or 2 barrel carb with the duraspark system.

WHY!?!?!

Thats stupid!! Maybe getting a constant hot wire to the pump and then wire up a GM HEI + duraspark dizzy and then have it running?

NOTE: Ive never worked on the 2.9 before.
