When I saw ALJR's thread Another option for 3800 air cleaner, I liked it. Stock look, more air flow, easy to change filter and I could point it at the 3800na boot. So take a look at ALJR's thread to give him some props.

The can is hard to weld because it is so thin. Don't bust my chops about my welds. Should have done what ALJR did, tack it and use JB weld to seal the seams.

So, here is the base with a 3.5" pipe in it versus a stock base.


3.5" pipe with the hold down in it.






Here is the stock can with 3.5" out.


You've got to grind the bottom of the can out too


Here is what the 3.5" pipe looks like on the filter. I know, the filter is rusty. It was and old one in the trash...


Getting the old rod out of the base sucks. I just used threaded rod to replace it.








3" PVC


Suck Suck Suck. Good grief. The audio quaility after compression sucks...

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?

Lets look at the stock base versus the 3.5" Base:

The stock metal base is inside the 3.5




The hold down is thinner too.


I painted the stock base red and put the 3.5 on top of it just for another view.

So, how does it compare to the Silverado intake tube?

Here it is in the rubber end.


Here it is compared to the solid part of the intake tube.

Very nice!
Your welds look as good as mine
I've done this mode several times and like the look and function better then the K&N hanging in the engine bay or down in the wheel well.
