    Cool!! The only thing is...it looks like a part is missing, but the box itself can't be moved or it'd require new drilling of holes to hold the box in...which I doubt K&N would have you do. When we put it together, we had all the parts according to the directions so I am not sure what the deal is.

    Cool K&N fipk/cai

    If I remember right, Ihad to drill one hole and used a existing hole also. I hope who ever installed the kit didnt trim the plastic intake tube so he could use the factory holes and not have to drill another. The connectiing coupler between the intake tube and the MAF just doesnt look right to me. It could be the picture, I will keep looking at it and maybe I can figuire it out.

    Just a tought, but does your truck have a body lift? I looked on K&N website at the installation sheet and you can see on page two the airbox is closer to the fender.

    Yes it should definitely be up against the fender, it just defeats the whole purpose behind the cold in cold air intake although you still get the gain of unrestricted airflow, for as much money as K&N charge you'd think they'd offer a fully enclosed air box by now.

    Mindi,
    I had the same problem with my first cai from K&N. I switched to Volant. Great fit and good performance.
    Thanks,

    It is a small world. I'd be willing to be there's many more from this area.
    Working on my truck is what passes the time between raking leaves and mowing grass, which around here is 9 months a year it seems.
