This is my poor mans ehs racing mod copy, I knew I wanted to use the bell end of the factory unit . So I cut out the middle and adjusted it so the 2 half’s would fit in the air box. Measured the inside diameter of the intake and found that a 2 inch exhaust pipe would work perfect to bridge the gap and be thin enough and stiff enough to give support and not restrict air . I cut a 2.5 inch piece off the pipe, smoothed the ends and superglued the bell end on to it .
I install the bell side into the air box ( and as you can see it’s very close to a perfect fit in my adapter ) then the throttle body side of the of the intake is slid onto the air box and is slid over the exhaust pipe connector simultaneously. The exhaust pipe is a very tight fit in the factory hose a little lube is needed to get it pushed on all the way . I haven't installed the air box yet but will let you guys know what I think when I do get it together.

Did you use 2" O.D pipe? How did it all work out for you?
Yep 2 inch o.d , works great got it all installed and took it for a quick ride. I assume I must have picked up a few h.p. As Eric from ehs stated just cutting the intake shorter you will pick up a few.

Stock filter works fine with a block of wood to keep it tight against intake.
I did that with mine and the wifes kodiak last season after getting them. After pulling the intake off the throttle body I found some dirt build up on the throttle blade and throttle body. So I am glad I did this conversion , I myself think the foam seal on the end of the factory filter is not a 100% filter
. To each their own ....

You won't gain hp from a simple air filter mod, but you will gain throttle response.

If you could gain as much HP as manufactures say that you can you could gain twice the amount that the engine is capable of putting out by just bolting their merchandise on.

Well regardless, it’s still way better than the factory set up. And it was a low cost mod that will pay off in the long run.

Gains in power are the least of my concerns. Improving on a poorly designed unit is my primary concern. Any performance gains would be gravy to me.
