you could poke holes on the intake side of the airbox, it will allow more air to flow through... might not be of much help unless u have a k&n or the like... see whut others say before you do this tho...

Go to my website and look at my under hood pics. You'll see what I did. There'* a K&N in there, too. That modded box is only getting me by until my ADTR intake gets here.....then the filter goes to JSeabert, and the box goes out in the carriage house for long-term storage.

You'll get more flow, but it'll be hot. Stuffing the hoses in the holes took an extra 2 minutes, and it pulls cold air now. Just buy the right size hose and hole saw. No prob.

Exactly where do your hoses go to from the air box?

1 into the fender near the stock pickup, and 2 behind the headlight. Tight fit, but they go. Drifter runs a larger duct down below the air dam. Couple different ways of doing it.

Press fit. It doesn't have to be airtight, cuz the filter comes AFTER the hoses. You just want them to stay in there.
