2001 DIY Question

Had planned on doing the DIY Intake Mod today but am running out of daylight and the warm 60s we had here today. Will finish tomorrow.

Question: I removed the complete airbox and battery. I dry fitted the Baldwin filter and the edge of the hood seems to hit it. Do I have to remove the plastic "platform" that goes under the battery and the airbox? In other words, will my filter sit on the inner fender or do I leave the platform in and squeeze the filter with the hood. (This plartform, I call it, looks like what the battery hold down attaches to.)

I'm wondering if maybe the baldwin filter is bigger than a 6637. I got it because I read where it was more waterproof.

Help me out here guys.....I'm close to hearing her whine!

Thanky, thanky, thanky

Bumping myself

OK...let me ask it another way. Once you have removed all you need to remove from under the hood to do the DIY Intake, what does the "pile" look like? Just the complete airbox only?

Come on guys.......I'm close to getting her finished. Thanks.

I removed just the filter box and also used the baldwin filter. i pushed the filter down as low as i could and let the lip of the fender hold it down, i have about 3/4 inch between the filter and the hood.

Thanks Frank....you are fast!
Dark now. I'll look at it again in the morning. I just didn't want to mess it up.

Hope I don't have to drive it tonight. No Filter!
