So this is the first time since I have had my Truck that I have been able to get out and really take a look at things. I had checked the air filter before but never noticed the box. I took the box off and cleaned it and this is what I see.

and this


I can only think he was trying to get some extra air into the system with this HACK JOB I mean "mod". Anyone else see any other purpose for this?

Yeah, I know about Duncan. When we moved back to Canada we moved onto Maple Bay Road.... just outside of Duncan, but went to Mill Bay to finish high school. I kind of miss it, you know, the running over of drunk indians on the reserve, the knifings outside of the strip joint, the 7 stop lights along the highway as you go through town.... yup, miss every moment I'm not there.

On my truck, the previous owner just drilled a bunch of holes in the bottom of the housing. I wish it was still stock.

It's not a big deal. As long as you do it on the correct side of the air filter.
