Just ordered a spectre cai kit on ebay for 74 shipped... I am excited to get that in... Will be doing the tb mod once the cai gets here... Any helpfull hints on these?? I am going to need to make the cai "mud proof" somehow for the offroad activities...

they make prefilters that fit over the cone but that will be more or less for sand and dust. I have the spectre on my 08 and i havent seen to much mud or dirt inside the heat shield even after some offroading right after it rained up in Michigan

sweet... I am thinking that the heat sheild should to a pretty good job of keeping mud out... If I sink the truck up to the hood and get water in the intake, then the stock setup wouldnt have been much better...

So I am having an issue with the spectre install... I cant figure out how the hose that came with the kit connects... My OE intake obviously had the stock hose going to my valve covers... The included new hose is only about half the necessary length to go from the new position on the spectre tube to the valve cover.... your thoughts and help??? Thanks!!!

Just followed you on Youtube. Had to do it, especially since you got a '97 as well. this way it's kinda like looking at my own truck... Sorda. Anyways, did your truck used to be green and is now orange?

yes it was green had it painted orange.love that look burnt orange american muscle color.. recently my driveshaft fell off my truck. sucks was driving and it came out the rear end. i think when i had the rear seal replaced they didnt do it right. but w/e that will be getting fixed along with 3.92 gears and a master install kit with a patc 2600 stall torque converter.
