Something interesting

(Then again, it might only be interesting to me :blah: )
I was paging through my new Napa flyer this morning and I see that we are now offering a new air filter assembly to replace the stock unit. Apparently the stock air filter is a real project to change? At any rate, with this new setup, it is supposed to only take about 5 minutes to change a filter rather than 45 minutes.
Might be worth looking into if you're a 6.0 owner that isn't looking to put a high-performance air cleaner on your truck...
When I get the price of the kit and the replacement element, I'll post them. :Thumbup:

I have replaced the stocker in mine... But i do not see that it would be hard to replace.. Very expensive, but not hard... You just replace the whole center section... 6 snap cleats... It took me less than 45 minutes to install the new intake...

If anyone is looking i have a replacement element that is high performance made by airaid, and I also have a airaid complete intake system...

I'm assuming that the flat rate time is 45 minutes, Brian...They guy/gal that did this write up has probably never seen a 6.0, much less worked on one

Replacing the intakes on these things aren't neccesarilly hard just can be a knuckle buster compared to your normal filter. I wish we had air filters like the new 3V F150's issed: 2 clips and it slides out. issed:

I found a 16" pry bar really helped changing mine. issed:

The Fat Rabbit: 2005 TDI Passat loaded GLS, Custom Rocketchip, Hybrid GT17/22V Turbo, Beta KermaTDI FMIC, Kerma Race Injectors, fuel cooler, Garmin 2620, Uniden BC246T, Avon Tech M550 A/S and Starmate Replay.

Still the fastest TDI Passat in the Western Hemisphere by far thanks to Rocketchip and KermaTDI.:Thumbup:

Looking at this kit, that's what they are attempting to do I think....4 clips top comes off and you put a filter in..

Mine was a bit more stubborn, I had to pull out a 15lb maul I had lying around... Came off in a flash! issed:


j/k... My AirAid if you look under my sig and go to my gallery, and look at the filter, All you need is a flat screwdriver, and it just comes out for cleaning. :Thumbup:

Well, I finally got the pricing info for this kit...Looks like regular walkin price will be ~150 bucks....
If you know someone that has a fleet account with napa, you should be able to purchase it for around 100....
