Some Deckplate Help

I think Im going to do the deckplate mod to my truck. Its a 2.7 liter 4 cylinder. When you do it, do most people take out the entire airbox and then cut the hole, also whats the best size of deckplate to go with with my engine, and what is the best tool to cut the airbox with, thanks

3 inch will work on your airbox....maybe a 4 inch will as well....not too sure really. i cut mine with a keyhole saw...didnt have a dremel at the time. a razor blade aint gonna work too good man...just a heads up.

A razor blade is NOT going to cut through the plastic. You'll end up going through a case of blades and cut up fingers before you'll get that hole cut. Borrow or buy a Dremel and get it done in 15 minutes or less. You'll probably need a 3" or 4" deckplate, any larger and it won't fit.

X2 on the 4" and a Dremmel. Get some sensor safe silicon sealant too.

Yes. That prevents any plastic peices from going into the intake track, and gives more room to work.

Make sure you use a Sensor safe sealant, and let it dry before reinstalling, and driving the truck.

Nope, haven't had a chance to go out and buy the stuff yet. Will definitely have time now though.........I'll probably pick everything up (except the dremel) over Thanksgiving weekend since I have a 4 and a half day weekend. And thanks buddy.

All you need is a Deck Plate (4") and some Black spray paint. I have everything else.
