i just did part of the airbox mod (in the fender) and was going to make a run to home depot before i did the second resonator. i got a little idea that i wanted to see if somebody had any comments or wanted to say that im dumb and its pointless.


So theres the small intake tube thats going up where i pointed and is just capped off at the radiator. i was wondering if it would be any use to get a tube while im at home depot and run it to the front of the truck to pull in a little bit of extra cooler air instead of it just sitting there. like in the picture below.



Let me know what you think and if it would even be worth it. Just with the fender resonator i noticed a bit of a difference in power. but that was just a test run for a few blocks. i'll post later and see if i notice more after driving a bit today.

thanks

I've seen a set up that had a tube running to the fog light housing. Kind of a cheap *ss ram air, but if you do any wet wheeling that might be a no no

i would plug it if i was in mud or anything like that. but i drove the truck around with just the fender resonator out and the airflow is so much better. i'll post some pics of the "ram air" mod when its done

i did have one question. did anybody remove resonator after the airbox and notice enough gain to make it worth while?

I removed all 3 at once. To me it seemed to have a little better throttle response but what the hell do I know....lol
I thought about running an elbow and straight pipe from the inner fender back towards the door just incase i get in deeper than expected. I figure if you get water up to your windows you got bigger problems...lol

I pulled the inner fender box and the bigger of the boxes under the hood. I left the little one by the radiator. If I pull that box, I would plug it. No sense giving water a low place to sneak in.

i actually might try that. it sounds like a good idea. and if i decide to hook up a snorkel im already closer to what i need

if you pull the other 2 make sure to plug them. There's a full right up on it. Make sure to use galvanized test plugs as the plastic ones didn't seal as well

i'll have pictures up tomorrow of my finished intake. i might just bite the bullet and get a k&n cold air intake though. But i'll still post what i do with the stock one if anybody is curious to see.
