yep, unscrew the bolts holding the air box in and just detatch it, take out the air filter and cut the hole, most people do the 4in size which is what i did. Make sure after you cut the hole u wash it out thoroughly to get all the plastic shreds out of the box. Put some sensor safe sealant around the hole and stick the plate in there. Put the box back in and if the check engine light goes on its most likely due to the sealant but mine went away after 30 minutes. goodluck!

I have an AFE pro dry filter and i like it, and all the instructions for the deck plate mod say to screw it in but the sealant holds it in very well so i didn't even do screws, but yes the sealant you can find at any checker/o reilly/auto zone store for under 5 bucks

i have the v6 as well, you probably could but a 4 inch hole is big enough and you wont see any performance increase between a 4 and 5 inch deck plate

It gives it a growl to it, yes. I love mine. I'm running a stock air filter as well. Just leave it out when you are driving, and put it on when offroad. I'd leave the silencers in. Also, use a 4" deckplate.

Better throttle response, about a 6 HP gain, and possibly a small improvement on your MPG (Depends on driving style and whatnot, but about 1-2 MPG increase usually). It's cheap and has awesome benefits. My favourite mod on my truck, by far. Also, when your RPMs get to 3k and above, it's louder and has a nice growl to it. It sounds pretty good. Keep the top unscrewed while you drive the streets. When you hit the dirt to offroad, screw the top back in. More air flow, meaning the engine can breath better as well.

In order to let MORE air into the airbox (provides more power and fuel efficiency) a hole needs to be cut in the filter box to let more air in. The problem with a big hole in the box is that water, dirt and leaves can get in the filter box which will clog and shorten the life of your filter. Also if water gets sucked into your engine, it usually does not end well for your engine. A deck plate ring will let air in through the opening in the custom made hole as well as water and other debris. If you plan off-roading or driving through big puddles or streams, you should fill the hole with the deckplate cap. The cap is water tight and keeps crap out although you'll be back to the original stock airflow and performance. Open for power, closed to keep clean

You'll wanna make sure you got a good cutting tool. That plastic box is harder to cut than it looks. Good luck man. Let us know how it goes
