DIY Airflow

How more more flow is there by eliminating the stock air box and going to DIY 6637?

The 6637 flows about 450 CFM, stock i think flows around 225.

Not sure how you're gonna build an airbox and have a 6637 at the same time though.

Yep, if you add a box you defeat the purpose of the open filter. You may as well have a stock setup.
