So I heard about it, had to try it. Pics are pretty self-explanatory...

Need cooler tools...

Need bigger airbox...

The hole ended up kinda ragged, so sealed it with some urethane tubing...



The only spot on the airbox with enough surface area is tucked against the firewall.

Pretty warm there too, so we'll see if it make a difference.

I remeber when this craze hit the Tacoma people. It never worked for me. it actully made less HP and was loud. Good luck with your mod.

Can't you just pull the intake off the baffle box? It worked on my 4Runner, and you just had to loosen one screw and zip tie the hose away from the box.

Just fucking with you- it's certainly not even close to the stupidest thing I've ever done. :D
I like to think the more stupid things one does, the smarter they eventually become, but still waiting to see how that pans out too :D

And KungFooo, affirmative, but I was hoping to get more airflow, hence the extra input, but who knows?? :confused:

Well, what do you know? I'm over here too! :D

I know for a fact this isn't the "tell me what I did was brilliant thread", so it's okay to say that this is silly on so many levels. This stupid gimmick has been touted here for years as a way to get "something for nothing". :rolleyes:
I didn't want to burst his bubble so soon. Besides you never know maybe it will work for him :rolleyes:

Wow, 20 degrees increase while moving :rolleyes:

I don't see how you would get better mileage when you gain elevation...

Just the facts... the open deckplate temp is only 10 degrees higher than normal, but still a 15% increase. MPG might be an indication the deckplate actually does something, but one test run isn't statistically viable, merely more information with which to speculate. :rolleyes:
