Not enough room for BHAF?

Recommended Posts

I was a little disappointed this afternoon when I tried to install my new BHAF & it seemed like there wasn't enough space to close the hood.....I just got a Donaldson DuraLite off Vulcan Performance like a lot of folks are using.....Anybody have any idea how much space is usually left after installing the BHAF between the top of the filter & the hood.....It didn't really look like it fit to me & I definitely don't want any warping in the hood.....

Also, does anybody have an idea if those bolts for the factory air box can be taken out from the bottom side.....I didn't really feel like removing my fender liner to find out if they could be taken out.....wasn't sure if anybody had their's removed.....I just wanted to be able to put them back later in case I went back to the factory box...Thanks...

--- Update to the previous post...

sorry, accidentally put this one in the wrong forum....

Actually it all fits under the hood fine... As for the bolts you can use them to hold your heat shiled in place. Then while mounting the heat shield use backing nuts to hold the plate up a bit more so the top nuts are flush...

thanks, it was kind of hard to tell how much room is left between the hood & the filter when closing it....i'm starting to see that it's helpful to have the heat shield since it gives it a flat platform to sit in & probably doesn't move around as much when not using one.....i think i will defintely get a heat shield before trying to install it again.....

I bought a K&N two years ago when I bought my truck, complete with heat shield and tube. I am planning on replacing the air filter with a BHAF. The tube and heat shield still work very well.

Are all the filters listed the same size or just similar dimensions?

I don't think they are the exact same size but very similar.:thumb1:

Hey you can also go to NAPA and get the #2790 same filter even has the duralite sticker on it:2cents:

I bet that's where Mike got it. Mine was from O'Reilly's 47290 and I paid $53 for it.:thumb1:
