Gutted the Intake

Take out the air filter, unclamp the hose, pull the box out and took that "tornado" fan looking obstruction right out of the inlet to the air filter. Don't know if it will show big gains, but sure can't hurt. I would guess it is about a 40-50% restriction to airflow. Not sure why it was put in to begin with?:Thumbup: :smoke

that's good. I'd hate to see you caught up in copyright hack infringement of the most ridiculous placebo in GM diesel history.
