I was wondering if any one has modified there factory air box/air cleaner to breathe more? Did you remove that plastic tube with the cross in the middle that is right before the intake go in too the turbo?

I drilled a 4" hole in the bottom so the flange of the PSM intake kit would fit. I've seen a an ~ 50* reduction in EGT's with this mod and my filter minder never moves (not that I trust it)

Dude how do you like the cool blue hose or whatever its called. It looks way better than my AFE Torque Tube and looks like a single piece from the airbox to the turbo, rather than a pipe with hose clamps on each end. What do you think? Thanks!

Let me tell you...
It was so dang easy to put on. Just make sure the motors cold was the trick. Turbo whistles so much I don't think I will have to worry about Deer anymore. The Wife says she will get used to it if it keeps the deer off the road. The dang thing is like a 1/4 inch thick and I don't see any way heat can build up to effect it. The PSM brings in air from the bottom along with the fender. It is suppose to help when towing but I have not pulled the boat since I got it. I went to the Buda Dyno pulls and with my aFe,DPP cool hose, PSM Cold air, Magnaflow replacement and CFM+ and the smarty Jr set on Performance (100) last pull was 394.74 and torgue was 712.55 and I got the sheet for proof. I am very pleased with the upgrades I have done to the truck. I also was running Amsoil Cetane and Lube to the Fuel
