what about using the stock air box and filter and using the tube from the spectre?u could always cut it to fit the length desired. just an idea.

well like mopar said, using the pipe will increase the flow of air from the rubber groovy stock one and the hemi hat. dont waste any more money and go buy some pvc piping and make your own like i did. i have a spectre filter and love it.
