where did you end up putting the intakes? I thought about doing that for the longest time, but just couldn't really settle on a good place to pick up that cool air

Here is one I made. Not nearly as pretty as the other one. There is a perfect spot for an opening on each side of the radiator.

there is just enough room to go through the core support on each side of of the rad. I cut the stock air cleaner housing into and added 2" to the height of it and welded 2 4" exhaust 45s in, the rubber connection is from lowes plumbing dpt. At the back of the cleaner it hit the pinch weld on the top of the fire wall
I recessed a place out in the air cleaner housing to clear it.

I cut 2 new 4" holes on each side of the rad. toward the bottom of the core support it still leaves room for my a.c. lines.

The cam is awesome, you will love it and I have plenty of vac for the brakes. If I wouldn't have pulled the engine thursday night I would put a gauge on it and tell you how much it pulled. This has become a popular choice so maybe someone will chime in with some vac #'s. What moe could you possibly do to that truck? Besides sell it tooo me :P I truly know how much work you have into that thing. Have a peek. https://www.460ford.com/viewtopic.php?t=19799
