ZooDad Mod PICS

Today I did the ZooDad mod on the truck and have a few pics. I used an aluminum screen behind a piece of lexan hard plastic and self tapped them in all the way around to keep it in place. Didn't take long and I thought it came out alright.

If you look at the front of your intake, there is a snorkel looking air inlet. In front of that piece is a flat piece of plastic covering it up. You can flip back the plastic piece on top to look down and see it. You cut out a hole in front of it and that allows airflow into your intake, actually making the inlet piece up front useful for grabbing air.

Looking from the front of the truck, it's on the right side of the grill. The cut point is right above what looks like to be some sort of sensor.

Yes it makes a difference....Remember when you were a kid and you'd blow in a raisin box to make a whistle? Well remember when that box weakend and blew open on you? Remember how easy it was to blow air through that box after that? Same concept, except your truck is sucking not blowing and also gets more cool air.

Some say it does and others say it don't. But I can see why it would since it is allowing more air to flow into the intake.

Oh alright. Thanks for the explanations. Seems like an easy enough mod to do so I'll probably get on that.

Cheap and easy mod you can do as long as you have something such as a dermel tool to use. If it does work for you, congrads and if you don't notice a difference in your EGTs, its not like you wasted your life doing the mod. I'm doing mine as soon as I get some more cutting blades.
