    This begs the question. Does the a3 cap inset or fit over and what is the diameter?

    I have an a3 intake that I haven't installed yet, and I'm also in need of a cap. The outer dimension is 5 inches.
    Not so much a signature as a cry for help.

    Montaillou, the A2 cap inserts very loosely into the vertical A3 intake pipe. I also think that it must go OVER the pipe, otherwise you invite water to seep in and run down inside the pipe. I have not measured actual diameters, yet. I will look at some options; there are rubber/silicone reducers and some such that might come in handy. It is not as if my LDS was screaming for an intake that is an inch bigger!

    I did a web search for an a3 cap and couldn't find one. I did find a hmmwv cap which is listed as 4.65 inches (outer) diameter and I think I might try that. Considering it sits over the top I'm not worried about any incidental moisture getting in there.

    Just found this, says it fits a 5 inch pipe: http://armysurpluswarehouse.com/2-1-...air-inlet-cap/

    I've seen similar ones on ebay that say they fit 4 inch pipe.

    What a neat idea! I saw a guy selling heaters and wondered where I could put a 2nd one. I find the heater in very cold weather to be a suggestion with the soft top. I'd also like to get the top to seal up with the cab behind the seats as the straps allow it to bow out and blow all the road dust and wind into the cab.
