      you remove the whole airbox... the filter isnt supposed to be sitting in the lower half of the stock airbox...

      I ran mine off of the side of the filter bracket and screwed it in to a screw holding a wire harness or something off of the front of the vehicle behind the radiator. It works decent.

      Hey Silver, I did the same thing on mine. That was years ago without a problem. The only thing I might have done different. Lock-tite. I'm a lock-tite freak. :)

      I have mine mounted this way. Never had a problem. Maybe try a little hole with a big screw?

      If the screw won't stay in the hole then use a bolt, a nut and a washer.

      This is how I mounted mine. It was so hard to use any of the existing holes, that that is where I had to mount mine so I could get access to it. I believe the instructions do say to mount it to the radiator bulkhead. I've had to retighten mine several times, and even once had one of the bolts mounting it to the MAFS almost come out. Locktight sounds like a good idea all around. Probably some of the non-hardening kind. (Is that red?)

      Edit: I can't seem to get the picture working, let me try the big version temporarily.

      I made my own plate, but its basically a KKM. I don't have anything holding mine down and I haven't heard a thing, maybe I should get my ears checked.
