    I want to remove the secondary air filter from my truck to see what happens with my mileage. I know some of you will say it won't help. Well your not getting under 12 miles to the gallon in the city with your truck.

    I looked in there to take it out, well it looks like it's screwed in there from the inside. I know some have taken theirs out, how'd you do it?

    the filter is riveted in there with plastic rivets. break those out and the filter will come out. its a good mod for a bit of an increase.
