    Ok now u can't tell me that 2 3" or 4" deckplates side by side will pull too much air if that airbox in those 2 bottom pics doesn't pull too much

    Just try the elbow mod like I did-I like it. IMO the air supply from the fender is cooler than from the corner of the engine bay.

    Very cool:) be sure to disconnect the positive cable of the battery , then do the mod, then reconnect the battery-this will speed up the ECU's learning of the new air flow.
    Yeah I figure-try the elbow-then if you want more-do the dckplate-nothing to lose!

    Fun:D give us a report when you're done and the better throttle response starts showing. I love the throttle response difference I have been enjoying since doing it. Chris 4x4 rightly insists that I do the deckplate-but I am so satisfied with this mod, I haven't done it yet:D plus-I still feel you stand to get doses of potential hotter air from the engine bay moreso than from inside the fender.

    I understand that! But with the deckplate more air is not just bein pulled in...it's also bein pushed in more by the wind force...if that makes any sense. But have you also covered your silencers on ur intake hose?

    No I left the silencer alone. Good point on the forced air. Your experiences with both mods will be interesting to hear:)

    I just got done with it. I'm lovin it. Cause covering up the silencers gives me more and better throttle response and power from start off! But then at about 30mph and up I get even more power and throttle response from both the silencer mod and elbow mod! Now just can't wait to find a deckplate!

    It's nice huh? I love how the truck just walks up long grades with not much pedal! Hey is your intake way louder with the silencers covered?
