I believe it's back quite a bit further. The front of the air box is pretty much even with the front of the water pump.



The bottom is about level with the top of the head and about 4" from it.



As the OEM box has a decent sized intake pipe that is true cold air (ported and sealed to draw from the fender just behind the headlight), I think I would realize better gains from removing this accordion then from adding holes to the air box....although both is probably the best thing.

Well that is bit larger 'impulse' decision than the one I made!
If I ever get a different DD and can keep this truck as my 'toy', I will likely go the Magnason route....which would lead to a trans issue...that would likely be best solved with something like a Sharadon.....Stage 3????
