    what ive seen and heard is you buy a deck plate from a boat store and cut your airbox the same diameter as the plate that you bought

    I feel the same way about that. What if i have to do some driving on a dirt road and the plate isnt in place. I dont live in a city. Isnt that kinda risky?

    getting there....
    i never put my plate back in, even when offroading, and nothing but a lil mud got in the front of the box when i hit some mud holes. a good filter will keep the dust from going into the engine.

    no. but it was the easiest to do i believe with the 3.4L air box. I had to do a little extra to fit a 4" deckplate into my 2.7L box.

    I have never seen either 2nd gen air box up close, but if you have an open face thats bigger than 3"x3", then you should be good to go
