detjoe Posted May 15, 2006 Report Share Posted May 15, 2006 I just wanted to return the help I always recieve here. I dont know what I would do w/o you all to help keep my truck in tip top shape, thanks. I spent much time researching intakes and air filters, and I finally decided on how I was going to do mine. At first I wanted a K& N in the stock box, but I found that I want to use a stock filter just changed regularly and might use the K&N at the track for testing and such. These are the basic tools I used, it is an 11mm socket for the metal airbox support. this is what goes from the vent to the air-box. this is looking up at the entire setup from the bottom. This is the metal part you will cut. I used a 4" hole saw for the steel part and a concentric 3" for the plastic air-box. I split some air hose to make a cover for the edge of the metal which was sharp even after I filed it a bit, just to be safe and it ended up helping the seal. another note is that the space between the boxes is small so I started by cutting a 1" slice of 3" PVC to help me see where to drill so it was not in the side of the box or where the support clips are, this helps hide it when looking in the engine compartment. The way I did it was I put the ring in place between this part and the air-box, marked the hole and drilled the 4" first. then I used the hole saw to find the center of the 4" hole on the plastic box and used the 3" saw for that so the holes are centered on each other.
