6637 Napa filter... gigantic?!!!

Is the filter absolutely gigantic or did I buy the wrong filter?

Yeah, don't move the battery, just remove the filter box totally and stick it in. It will be right up against the fender edge too.

I was told to get 1 8-1/2 in mounting band to keep it up off the fender and get more air to it
