I just noticed on mine that the filter has a few holes worn in it because the back of the grill came into contact with the filter. Check to make sure you have some clearance on that.

The K&N filter hurt my gas mileage by about 2mpg. I drive in the rain often and I don't notice any difference without the filter except for the gas mileage. The grillcraft will definitely help because you won't have the sharp ridges digging into it. But I'd still check it out.

extending the maf wires are easy. just cut one at a time, and slide a heat shrinktube on each end, which is included, and then just solder in the wire extention that also comes with it. then slide up the heatshrink and heat her up.

you can use butt connectors, but i highly highly recommend soldering the connections. one, it will help keep things looking clean, and two, unless you have something rip it out, the chances of the connections breaking compared to butt connectors comming off is ridiculous.

Cool thanks for the info. Better start searching for a decent soldering gun...

Laters.

you can pick one up from home depot for pretty cheap. i use this one for all the work ive done, including the led swap on the gauges, and any other electrical connections ive made on the truck.

I experienced the exact same thing. My K&N cover sits in my glovebox now.
