napa filter w/ k&n?

I have a question, of course ive had the full kn intake for awhile now but its gettin dirty and instead of cleaning it i think im just gonna buy the napa filter that everyone uses on the diy tymar. my question is how do i go about doing it? should i just take off the metal kn box and just attach the napa filter onto the pipe?

Yes you will have to remove the metal heat shield. The napa 6637 filter will fit right onto the K&N intake tube.

I been running like this for a while now.

Dakotah this is the way i'm running it on my 97. The 6637 filter fits right on the K&N tube and also fits in the box with no problems.

STAX, that sure is a clean engine bay, my brothers 97 dosen't look anywhere close to that clean. But I guess his priorities are different, Beer-clean engine bay- BEER won.

SMKSTAX,

That looks good.

I have had the original FIRST K&N FIPK production box in my truck for over 6 years now ( I think, maybe 7 years, can't remember) but anyways.

It is a good kit and much better than just the Pipe with a Filter on the end of it as the AIR is directed into the first from the outside
