This is my own modification to my factory air cleaner. It gets the job done and can be applied to any air cleaner and keep it a secret.
Stealthy Air Cleaner Upgrade
This is my own modification to my factory air cleaner. It gets the job gray without screaming "Look, I hacked up a perfectly good part! Ain't this tacky?". You can apply this to any air cleaner and keep it a secret.
Actually it is a pretty simple modification
But it may be a bit time consuming and require some planning and attention to detail, but the result is worth the time and effort. What it does, simply put, is adds a bunch of air holes or slots to the underside of the air cleaner. Basically you are slotting the base so you have more air intake, just not where you can see it!
- The first picture is actually the original and the final view as you would normally see it. That doesn't change. So it appears to be normal.
- The second picture shows what was gray to open up the air cleaner but on the base plate.
- This view illustrates the reason for the comment about the planning and attention to detail is because some air cleaner assemblies don't give you a whole lot of room to do this mod. Where the air filter sits in the housing and the outer shell may be less than an inch in some cases, so you have to scale down your slots to fit the unit you are working on.
TaDa! My very own full flow stealthy air cleaner!
