  • 355 Replica Engine Cover

    Hello,

    I am in the process of trying to make a replica engine cover the my 355 replica and have a question. Does anyone know the diameter of the air intake tubes (See Pic)? I really appreciate your help.

        I should be more clear about this before people get too excited. This will not be an exact copy by any means. I am collecting junk yard parts and making parts where I need to. In the end I hope to have something that looks similar but not exact. Hopefully someone has access to a 355 to take some measurements for me!

          I'll measure my OEM ones tomorrow and post the details for you.

            Can I ask another favor? It would really be nice if you could measure the length and width of the air box tops and the length and width of the finned center top cover as well. I REALLY appreciate your help!

              Don't have the OEM center piece with the power steering fluid cap and expansion tank, the one I made for my replica cover was 15.5" from top (where power steering fluid cap is) to bottom of cover. There is an indented area on the bottom edge in the center, to clear the oil filter on this piece. I did not deduct for that measurement. 15.5" is overall length of the center piece.

                    The air boxes are 13" x 8" each not including the flanges for the hoses.
                    The bottom Y pipe with the airflow sensor is 4" dia. and the top Y pipes are 3.5" dia.
                    The top "face" of the air box is 4" tall, the bottom is 1.5" tall but much more slanted (almost 2" not counting the slant differential).

                          Any update on the replica 355 engine top?

                          Here's a couple of air boxes identical to the originals if you're interested, just let me know. I can get items duplicated precisely if you need them
