There is a bracket under the airbox that holds it to the side of the cylinder head. The bracket bolts to the head with two bolts. I think it is a two piece bracket on the early L-body cars, so one side of the bracket is attached to the airbox, the other side of the bracket is bolted to the head, and the two brackets are joined with some 10mm head hex bolts/nuts.

Looks something like this:

any chance you could explain the elbow configuration down to the turbo? I really appreciate the pictures and your time!

On a TI car there is no elbow down to the turbo. The air passes through the air cleaner housing and travels down the tube to the throttle body, passes through the throttle body and then in to the intake of the turbo. From the turbo it exits the snail/compressor housing and is pushed up into the intake manifold.


Air passes through the air cleaner housing on its way to the turbo intake.


Air enters the throttle body after passing through the air cleaner hosing and traveling down through the tube and air horn


Air is compressed in the turbo compressor housing and then exits on its way to the intake manifold


The intake and throttle body are connected to the turbo with a silicone hose that looks like this...
