    Wanted to do the deck plate mod but my air box is ridged (not flat sided)....therefore would be really hard to get a seal around the deck plate.

    Does this look like a stock airbox on a 2001 2.7 L?

    Can the deck plate mod be done on this type of air box?

    Thanks

    Yes and Yes. You just have to be liberal with the silicone.

    +1 Looks like a stock 2.7 airbox.

    But If i were you I would just do the elbow mod and forget about the deckplate unless the re-sealing of the box is important to you.

    Should work. The way the deckplates are built they extend probably a quarter to half an inch below their mounting surface to accommodate the threads. This is well over the depth of the ridges so they still work fine. It's already been said, but be liberal with the sensor-safe silicone just to be sure.
