Default Ganzflow Stage II Airbox Upgrade

Was wondering if anyone has done this yet... How hard, how annoying, and most importantly how big of a power difference?

Thanks!

PS - Larry if you're reading this you have any idea how much it costs to order a replacement for the rear of the airbox if you happen to screw up?

A rear airbox would probably go for pretty cheap if you accidentally screwed up while modifying yours. You would just have to find someone who installed an intake that didn't require the stock airbox. The problem would be finding someone willing to give theirs up. Id start looking in the turbo forum.

I'd like some info on this mod also. It seems that you may be able to do it yourself, especially if you can come across and extra airbox.

My question would be is larry still working on the new rear airbox section? because im not really up for using my own chopping skills to fudge the setup, and then trying to fix my new F'd up airbox because i screwed up. I would gladly pay for a nice new rear airbox section. Ive had no Mod angry dealer problems but just cutting a hole in the airbox and plastering my own 3' dohickey to it might piss someone off. Im sure it helps, but its not worth it if i mess up with the DIY setup. But I would really love it if larry decided to go ahead and get those plastic molded rear airbox sections to work for a price.....Hint Hint Nudge Nudge wink wink.......Please larry do the work for us?........pleaseeeeeeeeee im too preety to get dirty modding my airbox

ha ha ha....oh well i'll probably be able to afford a turbo before it gets made anyway.

Thumbs down

I did this mod and can say that this is a worthwhile mod. But, I suggest that you do this only if you are good with your hands and have a dremel. It took me about 8.5-9 hours of hard work. I almosted fudged up the mod too. I didn't do the cleanest work with the silicone either. Anyways I did take pics but they didn't come out right. I don't own a camera so I had to use one of those disposable cameras. I was going to scan the picture into the computer but the pictures are so bad you can't see anything. I was supposed to send the pics and how to mod to Larry to give him a few ideas but since the pictures are so bad I won't bother
This was the hardest mod for me so far. My next mods are shifter bushings and engine/tranny mounts. I'll see if any of these mods are more of a problem then the Ganzflow modification. The day I did this mod was a hell day anyways. First it was about 80 degrees and humid at night. Second my garage lights went out and I had no fluresent bulbs at home. I had to work with a flash light. And my dremel sucks, it's a cordless dremel. The directions say to charge for three hours, I did that and the thing only last for like 5-10 minutes. So I had to file the hole by hand and cut with a hacksaw. Everytime I thought I was getting somewhere it seemed something else went wrong this was turning into a nightmare. I would charge the dremel then use it for like 5-10 minutes go back to the file and hacksaw and repeated this for almost 9 hours. Well I finished and glad I did it but this was a pain I almost made the . I'm sure if I had better lighting, a cooler night , and a better dremel I could have finished faster. Maybe in an hour or two. The hardest part was making the hole perfect for the elbow after that putting the silicone on and cutting the piping to size was a piece of cake. If you feel your up to doing a mod you can't mess up unless you have an extra air filter box then go for it. But again I suggest you do this only if you are good with your hands and with a corded dremel. Good luck

See!!!!!
Thats why larry needs to make those rear sections!!!
You would make a killing!!!!
This mod is a little too risky for most of us "yeah im into DIY mods as long as there is no real possibility of jacking anything up too bad" guys. But everyone wants more air.....
