    nothing....yet
    if i live in a really sandy place is it bad to have the deckplate mod. seems to me like a lot of dust and sand would get in the air filter box and i'd have to change my air filter more frequently. any help would be appreciated

    I'd say you're fine. The only thing to really worry about is water getting in there... so close it up if you're fording rivers. Driving in rain hasn't affected mine at all.

    The Deck plate Does allow more dirt to enter the air box, but if you run the OEM filter, it wont be an issue.

    What's special about the OEM filters?

    Its a 1st gen mod only, unless you somehow mod your air intake into a airbox...

    By cutting a hole in the front of the airbox it allows more air into the engine thus giving more "power" and a cool sound
