my custom intake build, its complete 1/8/13

well you guys just pushed me over the edge. I swore i was not going to modify my maverick. Now you have me making a stainless steel intake tube to adapt to an AFE 4" x 6" long dry filter.

now i just need to figure out how to dissasemble the hood on this Mav, too many clips and screws everywhere.

I'd appreciate any tips or a writeup or some pictures of how to take the hood apart. I wanna take mine apart to Plastidip the yellow!

good luck I gave up, i just had to remove the skid plate to get at the hose clamp on the throttle body and shove my hand up there backwards. I then had to break a tab on the airbox just to get it out.

Good news i had zero dust in the TB.

Might want to hold on too your stock air box. I just got back from testing my new intake on the Mav and the stock fuel system doesn't seem to be keeping up with the amount of air that the new intake is generating. When accelerating under full power the car cuts out. I took it down to my dealer where the guys are pretty good. We ran some test and looked at the computer and it looks like the fuel system isn't keeping up with the new fuel demands that the air intake is requiring. I knew BRP could'nt be trusted. Well fortunately I have an appointment with DynoJet on Monday where they are going to design a PC5 for the car. It should be done by Wednesday if there aren't any set backs according to the tech.

Correct me if im wrong but in that pic of the shield you put in, to the left side where there is that round tube looking thing coming out the firewall. That is where the intake tube mounts that feeds air to the airbox and feeds from inside the cab. Right? If so, boy does it look small.

I dont think people realize how small the stock intake really is.
