My cold air intake.
 
I used a AFE stage 2 and a AirAid tube from a 2002 Dodge Dakota 4.7 with a little trimming (It was a bit long in length), sounds good and feels good.
Doesn't matter what intake you have, if it still uses the stock resonator box, you are not getting the full benefit of a CAI.
Noticed a better tone out of my muffler as well, once i have my throttle body polished and ported, it will be a different animal.
Might throw a AirAid throttle body spacers just for the sound.

Took a picture and have a video with a little exhaust video as well.


My somewhat clean engine compartment.

Exhaust video for those wondering what a FM 50 series SUV muffler sounds like. I will have to do another one after cold start, sorry for the bad video.

Maybe sand the airraid off and paint it to match the afe lid. Then it can be a carlos AFE

Looks good, Glad to see it made it to you in 1 peice and in good condition. Its still dark khaki i see. Are you gonna re paint it or leave it the way i painted it?

Thats a great idea with the Air Aid intake tube, much easier then what i originally did and much cleaner.

Thanks guys.

Kyle, it made it in one piece, thank you for the nice packaging.
I will leave it the color it is, maybe someday when i have time and the weather gets better i will paint it.

Nice. I was looking through your photobucket.

I like what you did with your rear bumper. With the reflector lights. Care to share?
