I have a 2.7 also, and actually took off and sold my FIPK after I experimented with the deckplate/stock airbox mod. My K&N was loud and sounded fast, but didn't really do much until I got the revs over 4000rpm's. With the deckplate open, I have a better powerband, get a little better gas mileage, and sounds good. It's most noticable for me on the highway, going uphill I don't have to downshift as often and have better passing ability. No reason not to do it, only cost a few dollars and if you don't like it just put the plate in and forget it.

no screen needed IMO. did mine about 4 months ago, airbox and filter are fine. if you plan on goin offroad, put the cap on. the amazing thing is, i don't know how you made it almost 24 hours without getting flamed from some of the keyboard commandos here for your deckplate mod post. good luck.

uh oh..i dont think im the one thats gna get ripped now..watch out mike. haha SEARCH....go to the searh botton and click on deckplate mod...or bettery go up a few to what gsm put on..its the link..but i'll help you out too..a deckplate mod is where you cut a hole in yoru stock air box..you put a deckplate with is used for boats, in the place of the hole..you can seal it with the lid it comes with or leave it open..it supposed to increase hp and gas mileage, its def increased horsepower for me..not sure on gas yet..go to that thread..yah it can be done on 3.4l its easier cause the air box is flat

Mine sits real close to the wipe fluid container..i can still get the cap on though..but it took me 30 minutes..gna put a little screen on just to be safe..but i do notice a different sound..better horsepower and response..and alittle on gas..so im happy with it..that 4" barely fit on my 2.7L alittle tuff to cut it out...kinda scary i didnt want to mess up..but i did it..

i would use a screen if you live in an area with lots of critters who would love to make a home in the airbox. I have rats in my area and chose to put a screen on.
