I wouldn't just because it will just cost you more without doing anything extra over a single one. It would work fine though.

I actually sized a 5" and a 4" on my truck and the 5 overlapped the outer edges of the box for me. I went with the 4". You really won't tell much of a difference between the 4 and 5 from what I've read around, but I wouldn't do anything crazy that couldn't be reversed. It'll be hard to convince anyone that the big gapping hole in the side of your air box magically transforms a 1st gen into a race car come sale time.

U might be right about the overlapping. But my toyotas never gettin sold so no worries there! but what would u say about two 4" holes? Or 2 3" holes? I mean. Wouldn't u thank it would be even better? Or is it just not worth doin?

that's the entire reason you use a deckplate, so you can close the hole later if needed.

I imagine that your ecm/maf is only going to allow for so much airflow. Your FI is not going to keep spraying fuel according to how much air is induced.
It's not like your running a 429 cj motor and an 850 cfm predator carb. Be realistic.

Same here. And yea its jus a GA thang but I jus figured it would help my truck pull my 33s a little better like goin up hill and stuff. Yesterday I taped off the silencers on the intake and it suprised me ALOT how much better throttle response just doin that gave it!
