Buckeye, the filter box comes out relatively easily. First intake tension straps, top lid latches, filter, then bottom of filter box which lifts gently but firmly off of two posts and rubber bushings. This is from memory, but search for my Bwoody Intake thread with pics which shows the stock piece removal. Sorry, I'm on crackberry.
If you are doing so, may as well do LED upgrade? See Putco LED list by Jorde.
Either way, sorry you have a few headaches so early on.
