    Look at build!
    Whoa, that 10 series is gonna be loud :eek:
    And instead of getting a $300 intake since it doesnt provide hardly any power gains for $10 you can do the Deckplate mod and its sealable for water crossings and such and has been dyno proven to gain more hp's than an aftermarket intake.
    Great looking truck btw!

    ive reading about that mod and it looks really simple. most likely going to go for that since ive been searching the forum and alot of people on here have been saying its a better way to go.
    the housing on my intake is cracked that i have on my truck now, so i might just look for a used one and apply to mod to that one.

    thanks everyone for the compliments

    Sounds like a plan to me... Ive done 2 and it took me all of 20 minutes from disassembly to assembly.

    did you seal it with the sensor safe silicone? if so did you let it dry 24hrs?
    what filter are you running, just a k&n?

    going to riverside to pick up a deck plate tomorrow hopefully and make this a little weekend mod


    and as far as the 10series being loud, ya hopefully it is haha im only 17 so i guess you can expect us crazy kids wanting something loud!

    Yea, i was there once when i had my mustang and a cherry bomb, i got a knock off flowmaster 40 and i think its to loud. I actually prefer my stock muffler with gutted cats over the chokemaster :eek: But ill be putting in a magnaflow or something soon hopefully

    Sounds sweet! ya ive heard magna flows are really nice.
    what do you think about going 6 instead of 4 on the deck plate opening?

    found this video on youtube just now, ive seen alot of people asking around on how to do this mod so if your more of a visual learner this should help:

    6 is fine, just not as much room for error and not sure if it really helps that much but ive seen it done. Both ive done have been 4". just go with either... Just realized i forgot to answer the part about sealent. Yes i used sensor safe but installed after about 30 minutes and had no issues with either truck. I also did the screen shit in mine as well and its been worth it in keeping chunks of mud and grasshoppers and pinestraw and such out. worth it imo if you have some porch screen laying around

    Pretty funny watchin that guy struggle with 3 meesly bolts :rofl:
