I actualy prefer the hickory smoked flavor but mostly because im alergic to the mesquite.
If the box is the same as the 2000 GPs then it is 3 pieces you remove the tubed that runs to the tb from the box and turn it away then disconect the screws on the top of the box pull the back of the box off it will have the filter. After this proceed to remove the next section of the box this section will have a be blocked off for all but a hole in the top left side.
I used a drill to make several pilot holes for starting and turning points in the plastic then used a jig saw to cut a dremal would have been easer but use what you have. after wards I used a file to sand down the edeges and clean it up followed by rincing it off and drying it to get rid of all shavings.
Even though i did not take the time to remove the 3rd part of the box to do the same as above I would recomend doing it so you will have the best flow from it.
Also if you see seeds of dog food in the box remove it all and the pcm to get to it easer I had about a half pound or more dog food in mine from some critter.
