Re: cold air intake

go to ramairbox.com

youl find the box to build dual cold air kit from.

id sujest either a k&n or the ram airbox. i personely like the k&N exstreme open element filter with a filter precharger wrapped around it. sucks way more air than cold air kit but at the cost of not being cold. but that relitive since were getting to summer time heat here pretty quick.

on a side not ive noticed no perfromance gain from the exsteme filter over stock. but it does make cool whislting noice and sucks more air through the filter top than the sides.

Re: cold air intake

I was just about to say Ram Airbox too. I have the dual air intake on mine and it's worked fine.

Re: cold air intake

Shorts: Your setup looks great. Did you notice an improved mpg with the dual box. Also can you elaborate more on how you dealt with the drivers side installation (did you headlight still work right after the install.

Re: cold air intake

Of course my headlight worked after the install. I didn't do anything related to the wiring. All I did was remove the headlight to get room to drill three holes in the bracket. That's where I attached the intake duct/bracket with small sheet metal screws.

MPG, sure it went up a touch. What was more noticeable was the the top end and acceleration. If I had the truck 70+, it ran much easier.

Re: cold air intake

this would work with some custom bent exhaust pipe or flex tubeing or something of the sort.

id prefer bending some expipe and sticking the filters behind the grill. or if you have room build box on each side of the radiator. route the filters to there then make sure its open from the front so air is forced into the intake. i planned to do this at one time. but radiator size eventualy got in the way ounce i swapped in bigger unit. this wont work on alot of trucks due to radiators behing to wide.
