July 5, 2004I recently put a K @ N on my 2003 Silverado and am concerned about snow injestion due to the larger hole that goes down by the bumper. I live in WI and do a lot of snowmobiling. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

July 5, 2004Yeah, me neither.... Maybe the air intake system is different on the chevys? I wouldnt think that an aftermarket air intake would change the system all the way down to the bumper. But even if it does, I dont think snowflakes or anything for that matter should bother anything. That filter aint guna let anything by it besides air.
July 6, 2004My issue is that when you remove the stock airbox, whose intake is on the bottom along side the fender, there is a direct opening on the grille side. Through this opening you can see all the way down to the bumper.
I realize the filter wont let snow into the engine but my concern is during heavy snow conditions enough snow getting in to actually plug the intake. I had a similar problem on an 81 ford with the stock intake. When it snowed heavy I would have to take the snorkel off of the air cleaner housing or else the air cleaner would pack full of snow. I just dont want to get up north this winter and get stranded because my intake is plugged. I hope this clears up my problems. Any advice would be cool!!!
July 6, 2004Assuming the new setup doesn`t draw air from that hole, I would just neatly cover it.
