diy intake

What did everyone do with the filter monitor wire? Also the 4" pipe was a little loose on the black factory accordion pipe the clamp tightend down though is this normal? It looke like if i removed the bottom of the battery box there would be more room. I also put the top back on the battery cover should i pull it off to get more flow? It felt like it had allot more power. With addition of the filter.

The "filter wire" is just an IAT sensor. Leave it hanging by the filter.

Usually just the top half of the air box needs to come out, but if you have to then go ahead and remove the lower piece.

I zip tied my sensor on. I also used like a 4 or 5 inch long piece of 3 inch PVC pipe. Just until I can get to an exhaust shop to get a whole pipe to replace the accordion tube.

Here is how mine came out I zip tied the sensor where one of the clip nuts where. I trimed one of the clip nut risers so it wouldn't dig into the side of the filter.

No you don't need the filter minder it just gives you a visual way to check if your filter is getting clogged. I just had seen where someone drilled the end of the filter and pushed it in. On my filter the end was quite thick but I had the little white 90 fitting so I taped the end cap and used a short piece of hose to connect it. It worked out well cuz you can see it well when the filter is down in its place.
