What I started with:

Installed and Autocom in place:
I guess it's time to work on an intake...
While I was cutting on the bearclaw, I made some changes here. I located a coolant overflow that fits under the tank and found the perfect place for it. So now I can reclaim the air box.
It's smaller than the stock overflow, but seems to work fine. I have checked it reguarly and have had to add some along the way, so I know it is picking it up. (After having the upgrade kit done I was low on coolant.) BTW this is the third time in the last 6 months or so I have had the coolant drained - I don't know if it's just me, but it seems even after topping the radiator off several times, it still sucks some down from the overflow.
There is no replacement for displacement.
