Somebody dig up some old pics of my stock airbox for me. I'm on the run right now.

Maybe on my website. Click on my sig, go to the link of the Gallery reference. Something like that.

i never noticed any difference after i gutted mine, but then again yours is totally different, the main thing i noticed is that the intake is much louder now, but is a good thing...there might be a bit more throttle response while rolling, but i dont notice any while stopped, i mean rolling at like above 40 or so.

In that pic, you can see the 3 hoses I added. They went down and forward as far as I could fit them. They allow the K&N to breathe alot better than the dinky OEM snorkel in the fender.

This is the inside of the front of the airbox. Looking forward.
