trim battery tray for new intake?

Do you need to trim the battery tray to make the 6637 filter fit correct? Or get a battery tray from a van instead? I found a great write up on the whole install with around 10 pictures on here the other day and I thought it was a sticky, but I can't seem to find it now. Thanks

How did it fit if you didn't trim it? Seems like it won't fit unless its trimmed.

Didnt have to trim mine. Fit like a glove!

I like it a little tight so it aint going anywhere, little loose and it could potentially jiggle off eventually.
