Deck Plate Mod Complete!

Did the Deck Plate Mod about 10 minutes ago. Turned out great! Used a 4" Black plate and Sensor Safe glue. Haven't drived it yet, won't until tomorrow, but will update on if it gives me some upgraded performance.

Bad pictures on my Blackberry.

Thanks. Blackberry doesn't do well in the dark, but it turned out pretty clean with the black plate.

Mine was white, but I hit it with some krylon fusion. It's already chipped to shit, but I don't really care. When you drive it next, get your RPMs up to 3k+. You start to really hear it at 3,000 RPMs and usually on mine it sounds like an absolute beast at 4,000. RPMs.

Bout the same. Mainly because I got new tires on a couple days after I did it and these tires cause a MPG loss. So I broke even between the two.

It will take a couple fill ups from what I'm told before you will see a difference.

I never close mine. Odds are I will when I offroad in the near future just for peace of mind (I haven't had time to lately), but I had it open during a couple major storms we had here and it was fine.

A modification of your intake. Basically, you cut a hole in your airbox and place a 4" deckplate there, and seal it with some Sensor-safe silicon sealant. Adds about 5HP, increased throttle response, a little increase in MPG, and it sounds pretty beastly.

Check out this write-up for more info.
