    You can use your regular filter, but I think it works best with an aftermarket filter. Not sure on the sensorsafe sealant because I used a rubber gasket instead. It should say on the sealant right?

    I did mine at night and left it until the morning, it's really not a huge deal though, your air box isn't sealed anyways. but overnight will suffice

    If you use sensor safe sealant you don't have to wait . . . that's the beauty of "sensor safe". When I did the mod I started my truck up and drove around after only the time it took me to re-install the airbox with no issues at all. Of course, if you have the time you certainly can't go wrong with waiting.

    Good choice on picking up the K&N - you're going to love the difference with new mod and filter!

    I've noticed about 1-2 MPG better since I did the Deckplate. Great, cheap little mod. I drove my truck through some bad puddles in town the other day and check it afterwards and my air filter and everything was dry as a bone. Congrats.
