I installed this last Saturday. It took maybe an hour to put on and was a very simple install.



and



It changed the sound of the truck a bit, no HUGE proformance boost but it did get me about 2 MPG :)

There are several of the K & N systems on EBay - at least three this morning, in the $350 range.



Danny, could you have installed the filter without the cold shield? I'm not really impressed with the fit of the enclosure, and would rather just mount the filter, if it would work that way.

Still waiting for Vararam to release their system before jumping in.

Where did you get the filter?
How much?
Part # ?

Looks great!
I got it at my local Napa store for 350ish.
Part #63-1104

What are the benefits of it ?
MUCH improved air flow = hp and mpg.

could you have installed the filter without the cold shield?
Probably could be installed without the shield, but it does serve as a support for the radiator hose. You'd have to fab something up for that part. As for the fit of it, it sits nicely under the hood but you have to make sure to get the filter back tight on the tubeing. Otherwise your hood could smash up that nice new filter :lol

Hi Ray

I agree with you on how the set-up looks, so I installed a K&N filter #33-2118 in the OEM filter box. Works great, keeps factory look, and more filter area so are rockets can breath!!! Do notice better fuel mi, and pick-up out of the hole.

Happy :ssr ing
