Another 6637 install question.

Just got my RiffRaff install kit and it's not a 20 min install. What do I do with the battery box tray. I really don't want to cut it up so is there another tray that will fit? There seem to be so many threads to read through I've lost patience with finding info on this part of the install. Thanks.

I see the eyes are watching. This is an 02, don't know if that makes much difference.

i have never seen his kit but if its anything like the DIY kit why not just remove the top OEM piece and let the filter ride no top of the OEM box?

The filter sits about an inch and a half higher than the drip rail on the fender-hood won't close.

I had to take a dremel to the bottom of the factory airbox. Dissasemble the top, If you do it cleanly you can still put the factory box back in. The 6637 is worth the effort. Its a great filter and I noticed the turbo spools a bit quicker.

I have riff raff kit and it went in without issue. The top of the filter hits the hood, but just barely. It squished the filter down just a tiny bit. I just pulled the stock air box and left the battery tray. It took me about 20 minutes and I usually never get anything done in the suggested install time. Drinking beers slows me down though. Just take my time. Check first video in link to see how much it sticks up.

All right, to hell with it, shove it in and see what happens. 10 minutes later it doesnt look too bad. Hood smashes it in there just fine. I don't get a whole lot of turbo whine now, mostly engine noise. Throttle response is smoother now, and the mpg readout is actually a little higher for what that's worth. Time will tell.
