Stock Air Intake Upgrade? Drill holes? But where?

Stock Air Intake Upgrade? Drill holes? But where?

Postby Captain Planet [OP] » July 13th 2017, 12:05am

Hey friends.

The title pretty much says it all.

I put a new K & N in my stock air intake,

If I want to drill a few holes to increase air intake, where would you do it?

Thanks fellow astro boys and girls :ty: :ty: :ty: :ty: :ty:

I just drilled holes (like 20) in the front section of the bottom half of the air box and took the "wings" off. With my body lift that stuff never did fit right again. probably isn't doing anything, but I like to fiddle
