Default Does anyone know how to do the air box mod for my ranger?

My ranger has a cylindrical air box. it looks nothing like the air box mod guides. anyone know how to mod this type?

either i figure out how to make it less restricting or im just gonna get an aftermarket CAI.

well im just assuming, there is a tiny holy for the air to enter, and the flat, ribbed, intake tube looks contricting compared to the larger smooth aftermarket intake

i understand how to remove the baffle, but my air muffler seems like it would be somewhere else cus my intake tube doesnt look like that at all. ill look at it when i get home i suppose. might just be in a different spot.

as soon as you take that baffle out start the truck up and you will notice that the truck has a completely different sound that's why most of us have started referring to that baffle as an air muffler.
