Re: 1987 Shelby air box
GLHS air filter bracket is different, nothing else will fit in the cramped GLHS/L-body engine bay. You can get reproduction GLHS air cleaner bracket at OmniPotent Parts.
The air cleaner to turbo inlet hose will have to be trimmed at least 1" on the air cleaner end
The Intercooler to air cleaner housing CAC hose for GLHS is also unique, others will fit...it's a tight fit, too many humps/too long
The intercooler to turbo outlet hose for GLHS is also unique, Omni Potent parts again, they have good reproductions. Other TII hoses will fit if trimmed but they will rub the transmission and eventually wears a hole in it, this is a very common problem even with the correct hose.
GLHS airbox to throttle body hose is also shorter, easily trimmed to fit.
L-body/GLHS power module to airbox inlet is also unique/shorter than other cars. Others will fit, tight fit, too long.
