    When are you doing the runs??
    Jeff,
    What would be ideal is for you to do the TonyA mod to your spare box and send it to haveblue. Most of us modded our original airbox.

    OK, I can do that, but NOT TILL AFTER WEDNESDAY 7/27. When will Haveblue do the runs? Also I need to get the filter element, and then just do it all.

    Awesome, thanks for the offer Jeff. I'm flexable on the dyno date. I can book it when ever I get all the parts to make it worthwhile.

    HaveBlue, I just got around to taking my intake off yesterday and getting it packed up and shipped out to you...my travel schedule has been crazy this past week and yesterday was the first real chance I had to do any kind of work on the car; so I must apologize for that.

    Unless your set on getting yourself a Dremel, which is nice to have, a 3" circular hole saw works much better and matches the 3" internal tube and the OEM 3" hole. Since they are round it makes better sense for air flow. When you drill your 36 holes it makes a bit of a mess. I used my Dremel to clean the holes up a bit. Do you have a compressor? Blowing out the debris out of the airbox will be needed plus two budweisers. Actually it's a fun DIY project.

    Krank, no sweat. As you can tell by my delayed response, I've been traveling for business too.

    Nope no scam. Just waiting to get all the parts. I spoke with the dyno shop yesterday and they are hot to participate. As soon as I have all the kits the runs will happen ASAP.
