No. It's fine in the rain and even wet offroad. The only reason you need to put the cover back on is for mud bogging, stream crossings and deep puddle jumping.ootsabryan said:Do you have to screw the lid back on everytime it rains and ur just driving on highway? Or just when going through mud and such?
The "big hole" is before the filter. As a result, your filtration is the same as it would be without the deckplate. The change is that the air no longer has to go through the twists and turns of the stock intake, it's a straight shot.TmudRroverD said:What about filtration? does it allow mor particles to enter the engine since its a big hole? I have a K&N drop in filter and i can notice some difference, but not much.
Well, I didn't have any complaints with the stock filter, but I HAD to experimentbb609 said:And the winner is ??????
It is a big hole in your airbox that you can close. It increases airflow into your engine for more power etc. If you'd like to see actual results of cutting the hole go to gadgets website www.gadgetonline.com he has actual dyno result from cutting the big hole. I don't believe he has a deckplate, just a hole, cause he doesn't take his runner off-road.NorCal4life21 said:so this mod is just an unscrewable hole? i guess i know what im doing this weekend. I just dropped a K&N, should i take it out and return it?
