One of the problems for owners of a Boulevard C109 is the lack of aftermarket parts etc. I was looking for alternative air intakes and there's not much out there.
So I decided to try something completely different. I needed an air intake that would be capable of being mounted to the existing chamber without too much of a modification.
When I was younger and added performance equipment to my cars, Edelbrock was and still is a well known performance product. I found some 10 inch intakes on Jegs website so ordered two of them with mounting screws ($150 including shipping). These are made for 5 1/8" Holley carbs but I worked it out that I could modify my existing intake to suit.

Do you have pictures of how you made them fit? Also, which exhaust do you have on there? do you have a sound video of your exhaust?

Thanks for the comments guys. Exhaust is Cobra Speedster Slashdown. I'll be posting a slideshow/video of the filter mods soon.
Post a sound vid of those exhaust. I would love to hear them.

That looks pretty easy. I may go that route. How well is it protected from rain?

I installed two thin strips of brushed stainless steel 75% around the outside of the filter element but left it open at the bottom. It should prevent water from entering when raining.
Is it able to get enough air? I might try an outerwears filter cover, which would help with moisture. It might do better if the opening was towards the rear. I would think that the front tire would kick water up in to it.

The opening at the bottom is about 7 times the original inlet size. So there is no problem with air intake.
