Modified Air Filter Box:

Everyone:

I've been toying around with modifying my air filter box, removing the hood, for quite some time now. After talking with Joe ("2005SSR6speed") and him putting any of my ill effect concerns to bed, the only thing that worried me was physically messing up my air filter box in trying to remove most of the hood.

I recently bought an extra air filter box assembly from "vmax1244" in case I messed mine up. Then last Saturday, with the help of "Jax" and his trusty dremel tool, we did it. It turned out good, and today I decided to dress it up a bit more. I purchased some 1/4" wide press on bright chrome door trim molding from Advance Auto Parts.

With my de-screened MAF sensor in place with the now opened up aif filter box, I'm definitely sucking in more air. You can hear it and feel it at the higher RPMs. The truck pulls harder and longer now. BTW, I did pull the ECM fuse #27 while we were doing the hood removal.

Here are some photos of the completed installation.

Thank you and the other fanatics for the compliments. Please hang in there with me on this accessorizing and customizing stuff. By doing so you'll show me that I'm not the only nutcase on this forum.

Doesn't this vehicle stimulate one's imagination and creativity?

Definitely an artistic statement. It's a hobby/interest and it's a great one. Spend it on ourselves.....it beats giving it to a Doctor or Hospital

The lake that's part of my "back yard" is Lyman Lake, just east outside of Greenville, SC. It is a 660 acre reservoir built many years ago. It's unbelievably peaceful and quiet, since no jet skis are allowed and the maximum motor size is 90 hp outboard and 135 hp inboard.

My biggest largemouth bass caught on it to date is a 9 lb.-1 oz., although I've lost several larger bass. My middle brother caught a 10 lb.-7 oz. bass while visiting me last year during Thanksgiving week. My largest fish caught on the lake was a 38 lb.-8 oz. blue catfish that I caught while bass fishing. What a ride and rush that was on 12 lb. test line.

Question, aren't you concern about not having some type of removable screen over the opening to keep those bugs off the filter. Maybe you don't need it now during the cold winter, but when spring/summer comes around, you'll find some ugly looking bugs smach up against your air filter. (maybe you can reuse those bugs for fly fishing) - Jeff

Stop it!!!! Don't want to hear no more...I'm getting home sick!. Bass fishing in Lake Meade is nothing compared to the southeast. I got a 9.4 bass on the wall at work that came from the Sparkelberry Swamp area of Santee Cooper. Hopefully in about 10-11 more years I'll be retired somewhere there in the NC/SC moutains.

Jeff:

That was a concern of mine as well as water intrusion. There are holes at the bottom of the air filter box to let any water escape. As far as the bugs are concerned, it's a long narrow opening between the bottom of the hood and the top of the chevron bar to begin with, and with the way the air gets funneled in, bugs could make it in anyway even with the hood in place, the way I see it. If you havenít already, please closely examine the front end of you truck with the hood closed. There is no way a bug or any object for that matter can make it to the air filter, directly exposed or not, in a straight line as a direct hit. Any object will deflect off of and upward from the large black plastic trim piece above the chevron bar. With that deflected path, I donít even think having the hood on would stop everything. But again, it canít and wonít be a direct impact against the air filter.

I'm sure the air filter box hood serves a purpose, indeed maybe somewhat as a "bug deflector" or even as some have suggested as an ďair funnelerĒ. However, for me, knowing I could cram a bit more air into the system and squeeze out a few extra ponies (I can feel and hear it), it was worth making this "freebie" mod. Also, when I see that the folks from Callaway Engineering have done this very same thing to their "juiced up" SSR, I'm alright with it. We'll see next summer for sure, when itís bring on the bugs time.

I have been running around with my Air Filter Box Modified for over a year and have never had any issues at all. I will say that it does attract attention when the hood is up. I modified another air filter box a while ago that was a little different too. We cut out the indented areas of the shield so you could see through it to the filter but the shield was still there. Maybe he will post a picture of his too.

Here is a picture of mine when I first did it:

Thanks for reposting that photo of your modified air filter box. It was this photo and your write up on it that gave me the notion to do the same. It's great for folks to hear and see no ill effects from this free modification from you having run with it for over a year.

Thanks for the compliment. We're going to have to meet someday to compare notes, as we seem to have similar tastes in accessorizing and customizing our rides.

Yep, I'm very fortunate to live in the location and situation where I do. It is our full-time home and not a weekend place. I'm only 18 miles from work and only 6 miles from "total civilization", yet still well removed.....an unbeatable combination.

BTW, I really like your new ad/link for your billet engine fluid cap covers!

straightup:

My sentiments exactly. As I said earlier, when Callaway Engineering elected to do the same thing instead of going with a complete aftermarket system (K&N) or designing one of their own, that speaks volumes to me.

Air Box

Just another mod. Not quite as much removed. My 2 cents. They all look good and have to improve the air flow.

Thanks for adding the photos of your modified air filter box. It looks really good and still adds a bit of a "bug screen" for those concerned. You might want to post here as well what the screen material is that you used, where you got it, and most importantly how you attached it to the air filter box.

Screen

The screen material that I used can be bought but I used the screen that came off of a air filter from a case backhoe air filter. Heavy equipment air filters are covered on the outside with material to give them a rigid form so not to collapse. I made one from a sheet of stainless steel that has the diamond cut outs 1st but the gauge of material was to thick and would not make the fit that this screen makes. The trick is to make the screen fit the OD. of your cut out and still be able to have material to hold the screen in place from the back.This screen is put in from the back side with the lip of the screen being your attachment point to the air hood. The material that the hood made of is hard to get any thing to stick to. I tied several things that resulted in a mess to clean up with no luck of adhering. Finally I cleaned the inside of the air filter hood with a lacquer paint thinner and sanded it enough to give me a rough finish and applies the old faithful 3m black weather strip adhesion and poof, it stayed. Have run the SSR to a a speed that I will not reveal and it is still in place.

I have a box full of blems and some new prototype covers in my garage. I stopped making those covers about 4 years ago. I used to make them for the Camaro, FireBird and Street Rods that wanted to use the LS1 engines.

6.0scSSR:

Below is the website link where I got the photos of the Callaway SSR.

BTW, have you all noticed that the folks who have the superchargers have a somewhat modified backside of the air filter box, where it tapers into the air tube? I'm assuming that apparently must come with the supercharger kit. Is that correct? I wonder if this tapered backside is available as a stand alone piece? I've seen photos of 4 or 5 different SSR's that have a supercharger and they all have this tapered backside to the air filter box.

The rear portion of the air filter box is part of the kit. It is made so the flange for the Throttle Body is moved over for the drive shaft of the Supercharger so it wont work on a non-supercharged vehicle.

I can sell you one but it is expensive and comes with a supercharger!

Thanks for the reply and info. Somehow I was afraid that you'd say that. I'd love to entertain that notion, but I've already spent a "wad" this summer on my truck (loved every minute of it), but for now a total "facelift" for the house is the current order of big bucks business.

No problem at all. Just keep the SSR happy too with all the free mods you have been doing.
