Home made big air

I used the k and n stock replacment filter had a buddy do the machining to a piece of aluminum that goes against the throttle body. Drilled some holes in the second plate. That one bolts to the first plate, and did some thinking and I came up with this.Click image for larger version

Looks good. I've daydreaming about this but I don't know if I like the rectangle shape of the filter? I drilled giant holes in the black plastic to create more intake but that was a while ago.

Yah I'm not big on the shape. But from this point I can create any kit to fit any filter. All it will cost is some more plate aluminum and some time to drill the holes. I am going to order the same air filter that the baron kit uses. And the pre filter.

That's exactly the plan. Was wanting a round one too. I work in a machine shop and have been trying to piece of all together in my mind....this helped thanks. Wonder of I'll need a tuner afterwards?

This is EXACTLY what I was thinking about earlier today.

So, if I understand correctly, you have a plate mated to the throttle body with holes matching the throttle body, and another plate mounted to the first plate with an extra hole in the center for the external plate center bolt, then a plate on the outside of the filter? I'm not sure what the plate in the second picture is?

Id like to know as well. I thought the pics were outta order. Thought the 2nd pic was the original piece on the throttle body and the 1st pic showed it covered by the machined piece...then the machined outer piece to hold in place? Details and steps please as this WILL be a popular diy.

Then I saw on ebay these spikes for like $60 and using me bracket from our first mod to made a bracket for the spike.

Works great but with all the rain we're having right now I switched back to my stock custom air box set up.
It takes about 5 minutes to switch out.

All the air you could ever want and keeps rain out. LOL
I was out in a down pour cars were parking on the side of the road and no problems just kept riding on.
Ok so you hacked off the bottom of stock box? What is done for extra air? You leave the bottom open? Details please...lol
