Buzz,

I'd like to get a copy of the drawing you have for the vent kit. I've looked at my setup and it looks like some of that flexible metal dryer vent hose and a couple of floor heater vents to act as scoops would work.

Yesterday I installed the Taylor wires and AC/Delco plugs, it took me about 1 1/2 hours to complete it. The passengers side was the hardest, I had to do the two rear plugs by feel . I did take a break for a cold adult beverage though. I also did it at the CG I'm at in Nevada, the temps were in the 110s, if you have a shop you could probably do it in an hour.

Good luck!

Thanks for all the good information. I will be picking up my 08 Pace Arrow with the 8.1 soon. How worried/concerned should I be with the heating of the plug wires. Should I begin looking into the air ducts to cool the engin?

Lloyd, I may be way out in "left field" on this but as an 8.1 Pace owner I have also been concerned. However, after following this problem for a couple of years, I can't recall Pace Arrow's built within the last few years having this problem. Hopefully Fleetwood's front end design isn't as prone to the heat problem.
Anyway, I haven't had any heat related issues with my 05 PA. I think you'll be fine with the way it comes off the asy. line.

Hi Tincup and "007",
I went to workhorse.com, clicked on parts and scrolled down to the picture they have of the available cool air vent kit. Looking at the picture it is nothing more than two air scoops, vent hose, hose clampe and what appears to be electrical tie wraps.
I took the picture and went to Home Depot where you can get two alumonum dryer vents with a metal mesh screen on the front, aluminum dryer hose, hose clamps and I already have the electrical tie wraps, screws and other materials plus the tools to do the job.
I went under the front of the MH and I verified that I can securely attach the dryer vents on each side under the front cowling so they will pick up the most possible air flow. I located several places to securely attach the vent hose so I can direct the air into the plug area of the engine. Mainly to the #5, 6, 7, and #8 plug wire area. It will take some work but I have plenty of time and will take some pictures to post when I am done.
I do have a couple of questions before I start. I have thought about possible wind noise. Has anyone experienced this or do you think it may be a problem? Also when I looked at the pictures on the link "007" gave me it shows two filters housed in a battery box installed in the vent hose. This is not part of the kit from workhorse. Is it requires for some reason?
Thank you "007" for the link!! It gave me confidence that I am on the right track and that what I am planning will work.

you are correct- no plugs. Meant to state "plug shields"

Buzz I put in the new CAI because I had problems with water in air intake the TUBA that you see missing. The weather strip you see was to keep the water out of the TUBA which worked for me and I left it to protect the wipper motor and plug which also creates crazy wippers when plug gets water in it.
The CAI gives added HP & mileage.

DO NOT put anything flammable or that will melt in your engine compartment. An engine fire would be much worse than a few burnt plug wires. My Workhorse vent kit uses NASCAR style hi temp ducting.

Hose is 3" race car brake duct hose rated to 250 deg. Made by Allstar P/N 42151 for 10' length (Cut in half 5'per side.

Flanges are made by Butler P/N 7009 2 ea

Well, I completed my spark plug air vent system and it turned out well. I get plenty of air to the plugs so I hope this solves the problem but also intend to put on the taylor extreme duty wires. I went to the taylor webb site and could not find them listed.
Anyone got a webb site I can go to and get them for a good price?

I'd have to agree strongly
