First off, welcome to the site usmcreeder

K&N makes and adapter plenum for the square Weber carburetors.
K&N Plenums & Weber Adapter - Custom Plenum

I looked up the part number on Summit racing and it's $85.95

But, this will allow you to run any standard 5 1/8" air cleaner assembly. This would probably allow you to use one of the build it yourself air intake kits as well.

Thanks of God! Another people in same quest. Hi everybody. Im new in this forum and so glad to be here. Im retaking my Old Jeep from garage and messing with that hated Carter Carb, decided to go for Weber.
Looking Redline Amazon.com: Weber Carburetor Kit 32/36mm DGEV 1972-1990 Jeep CJ5, CJ7, CJ8, Wrangler YJ w/ 4.2Lů

A lot of info and sorry if looks dumb questions: Any improve between rectangular air cleaner or that K&N filter adapter? Can I live without it?
It is legal in street use? I mean the Weber carb. thanks for your help.
