Re: How to destroy a Raptor
I totally agree with Bajarider, that particular install was doomed from the start. Installing a CAI without some sort of an air box is the equivalent of cutting out half of the air box for your existing filter! I have Spectre on my truck, it sits above the driver side head. My truck is a 73 highboy, so it's about 4 1/2 feet above the ground. Normal use, I'm pretty well protected, and before I take it out into the mud and what not, I'm gong to figure out how to make an air box that doesn't look like a crappy duct job.
Oh, Baja, not sure what type of grease you use, but many of the rubber seals out there break down when in constant contact with petroleum products, if you're experiencing this, try silicon. If you all ready are, never mind.
Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?
Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
