Greetings, salutations, and a question or two
Now that the weather here in New England has started it's turn for the worst, I find myself with a little more time to sit down and check out whats happening here on the BBS. I notice a few familiar faces and several new ones as well.
This year didn't fare too well for my poor samurai. The rear bumper has been bashed into one too many boulders. I think I'm going to fab up one out of a YJ bumper like I did the front. Yes, YJs are good for parts, they just don't work well as a whole! Rock rails are also on my "to do" list. I flopped it over on it's side this summer also. Goodbye windshield frame! Fortunately, only minor body damage occurred and the windshield itself didn't break. Sorry, but no one got any photo's.

That leads me to my question. I have a wiring harness and intake assy' from a '91 Geo Tracker that I intend to install. The "over the engine" intake tube is going to require my adding a body lift. OK, no problem. But what's the minimum body lift that I'll need? If I can get away with a one inch, that's all I want to do. And Daxe, no flaming me about doing a search! I couldn't find any specific information from anyone who'd done this. Only 1.6L swaps. Since I have a relatively new motor, I don't want to swap engines.
So, anyone out there put an 1.6 intake on their 1.3?
