DIY 6637 cover

Just wanted to brag on my wife real quick. I've read way too many posts on why or why not to run a prefilter/cover on a 6637, but I wanted one on my cover because of the environment I run my truck in. I really liked Pete's covers, and actually found the post where he made his first one a couple weeks ago. I'm not going to rip him off or anything like that, but I've always liked to make my own stuff for my projects. My wife and I looked at a few pictures and after a little work, we came up with this:




The ripple in the second picture was one of the pockets, can't see it when installed on the truck. Fits perfect and ran the truck a couple days with no issues. The 6637 is nice, now I won't be sucking the air filter in to the intake tube any more. Total cost just under $7. Made out of a pair of gym shorts purchased off the clearance rack at walmart. Mens size XL. If any of yall try this, my wife said a tshirt was much easier to make into a cover than the shorts, the first cover she made out of a Justin Bieber t shirt someone bought one of my daughters for christmas to see if it would work like we wanted. (I don't let them have that kind of crap so shirt was just sitting in the ragbox anyway). Kind of had me worried when I saw a giant Justin Bieber graphic on my new air filter, but on the other hand my wife's 8 months pregnant and I'm not gonna argue with her Anyway, like I said not looking to make a quick buck ripping off Pete or anybody else, just wanted to make one for our truck. Unless one of you guy's desperately wants a Justin Bieber cover, I got one already made I'd sell

That's pretty cool lol.

What I would do though is get a fairly sensitive vacuum gauge and stick it through where the ccv goes to the intake. Test it by going for a drive with and without the cover. Just to see how much harder the engine is having to suck through it.

With a cover from Riffraff the difference was negligible, somebody on here was calling me an idiot over running a cover, saying it was a huge restriction, but I never bothered teling him about the test. He didn't seem worth if

he'll never make it to the reunion. o/d, murdered or prison is where he'll be.

a couple years ago he made the news here for beating up on some little kids at a laser tag while he was in town.

he's not handling fame very well and it's just going to get worse.

The shorts we bought had were made of two different materials, like an inside pair and outside pair sewn together. The inside material seemed too thick. We removed the inside layer and used the only the outside which is full of tiny holes. You can see the holes in the pics. Truck runs better than it did for sure. Hoping to squeeze a little mpg out of the 6637 for sure
