Re: How to remove the stock airbox cover and air duct? (ShyGuy)

The top half of the airbox is held down by 2 Philips head screws, remove those then the top part seperates from the bottom via tabs. Push that aside (it will still be connected to the MAF sensor, you can remove it from the MAF sensor if you want but it's not necessary). Take the stock paper filter out and take off the plastic battery cover. Then the bottom half is held down by 2 hex bolts; remove those using an 11mm socket. You'll need an extension to get to the bottom bolt. Once those are removed, lift the bottom half out and push out the intake snorkel duct. That duct is held down by one 11mm nut. Good luck!

No prob
Where'd you buy the plumbing for the cheap-CAI mod? I was looking into this but Home Depot didn't have the piping I wanted.
