Link for BHAF thanks to mopar1972man
BHAF

Take the stock airbox out and put the filter in where it was. You can create a heat shield and use a pre filter cover from outerwears. Link to templete is CumminsDatabase.com :: BHAF

The ice box is an excellent custom made cold air intake. Icebox Manufacturing Talk to John (jbarker on cumminsforum site) at Holland Court Diesel Holland Court Diesel Sales. When I am ready to upgrade I will be going with one.

Yep. Make sure the BHAF isn't rubbing any hoses. And gut any 'vanes' or other obstructions inside the toob between the BHAF and turbo. (I'm not as familiar with what might be on the 2nd gens).
