DIY intake w/Donaldson filter

I recently got a donaldson air filter (pn 085011 I think?) that is supposed to be the same as the napa 6637 to replace my k&n. My question is: the base of the filter (where it fits onto the intake tube) is a hard plastic instead of rubber,so I don't think a clamp will work;; how do you secure it to the intake tube?

Re: DIY intake w/Donaldson filter

A 4" piece of exhaust will stuff in there VERY TIGHTLY,, then a constant torque clamp, (like the CAC pipes have) will tighten on it and hold it better. In fact, you may need to "Grease" the pipe a little....

I just used a hose clamp and tightened the piss out of it... Seems to work pretty well for me.

Re: DIY intake w/Donaldson filter

Thanks for the ideas! Think I'll be able to use the k&n intake tube, or am I gonna have to find a factory one?

Try the K&N tube first... You may or may not have to mad it because the 6637 filter is much bigger. As long as the K&N tube is a constant 4" diameter you should be able to mod it to fit.

If not, don't worry about looking for another stock tube. Just use a 45* elbow of 4" exhaust tubing. Like the photo below.

Re: DIY intake w/Donaldson filter

To insure no dirt intrusion, I ran a bead of silicone sealant around the 4" tube after forcing it into the filter opening.

Use hair spray to lube it. It will lube while wet and dry sticky.

Re: DIY intake w/Donaldson filter

Got it done yesterday; seems to fit tight on the k&n tube just fine. Even with most of the battery box cut away, it's still a pretty tight fit. Did any of you move it a few inches forward?
