It will get a lot louder. I built this one, and could not believe how much it made the trubo sing.

homemade intake

This may sound silly but is there any advantage to make the pvc intake tube but leave the stock box? I have the amsoil drop in filter and really don't want to spend the extra $$$ right now on buying the cone filter. Give me your thoughts. Thanks

the only benefit from doing the tube is more singin' (intake baffle removal) and possibly increased air flow if you go with bigger tube. i went with 4" inside diameter pvc and a 4091 filter. you shouldnt see much if any performance increase...

Is there any problem with having the filter right in the open like that? Could something like the IceBox work with this setup if I wanted to get one later?

Cool idea, BTW.

I have had mine on like that for over a year. I have had zero problems with it. I do some harcore snow goose hunting in muddy fields with this as well.

I have a similar setup and dont really have any problems, I also went through the painstaking process of making a heat shield for mine-took all friggin day
