06 air cleaner box on an 04?

Will an aircleaner box from an '06 fit an '04?

Yes, it will.

You should also try to get the apron under the air cleaner too. It has seals on each side that prevent engine heat from entering the air cleaner.

Yes.

The rubber seal around the air cleaner eliminates the recirculation of hot engine compartment air into the intake...... making the air inlet a true "cold air inlet". You will notice that the throttle response on takeoff will be much better, since the inlet air temp will be at 80 degrees instead of 160 degrees after sitting at the stop light....

Good on you....... the inlet air temp causes the computer to retard the ignition.... I painted my air cleaner apron a few years ago and had not put back the seals at the bottom corners of the air cleaner. When we looked at the engine IATs, you could see them start climbing as soon as we stopped. It really played hell with the tune that Joe Delano was trying to put on my truck.....

Regards,

Mike

So this is where the Throttle Body Radiator by pass also comes into play.. It all helps the cooling of the intake air........

The IAT sensor is actually in between the air cleaner and the throttle body. Seems a little goofy to me that the throttle body is heated and not accounted for in the inlet air temp....
