4.7 Intake resonator box delete

Well I have been researching on what I would do for a cheap intake mod. I didnt want to pay a few hundred dollars for an aftermarket one so I made my own based from ideas found here. I used a 90 degree tube and 6 in. straight intake tube and connected them together using couplers. The couplers and tubes are 3 in. OD made by Spectre found at any auto parts store. I had to drill a 1/2 in. hole in the straight tube for the IAT. I had problems when it came time to connect the 3in. straight with the stock flex hose, but found a solution. There is a black 3.5 in. gasket that goes over the resonator opening that connects it to the TB. I slid the gasket over the straight tube and forced it into the stock flex hose. I then tightened the clamp down until the pipe was tight. Then I removed the stock airbox and drilled 5 holes using a 1/2 in. bit to pull in more air from the fender area. I then replaced the stock filter with a k&n panel filter. I think this will satisfy me for now. Let me know what you think...

I think you are on the right track there.

I like it. Good old fashioned hot rodding. Let us know how it performs. :smileup:

Well so far I've noticed the truck cruises with more ease on the pedal. At idle the truck is quieter and it's breathing alot smoother on the highway at high RPMs. So far so good..
