I did the mod back when i still had the stock airbox that had that "air tube" that ran straight to the air filter. When i did my DIY filter the tube got removed with the stock airbox. I may be wrong but without air being forced straight to the intake through that tube i dont see how it could help

18 lbs dang, is that with 4x4? I know that would just roast my tires in 2 wheel drive.

Never tried one before, figured id break something. I had the urge to do one during lunch today and damn its fun! But in the midst of white and black smoke fogging the street I see my boss taking his daily "after lunch walk". He saw every bit of it. We're on the "pretend it never happened page".
