The drier duct feeds the Spee-d Basin, that duct has so much area in it the engine can't suck it shut. The filter would collapse if it pulled that much air.
The hose coming from the filter is the stock hose with reflective tape on it.
When I put it together it looked pretty good, all shiny, years of hot and cold and neglect to re tape, give it that sh*tty look.

Then do a Google search if you want to spend the $100+.
We are here to help and help you save some cash to spend on important things, like a skirt.
Don't get upset about these things, I did not cut any part of my B2 when I installed that thing, and when it is in place, you can't see the duct tube, just the foil wrapped stock intake hose and the butt of the K&N.
Like I said, it ain't pretty, it's functional.
Now go try Summit and a few others, find what you want and buy it, leave that poor girl at home for the next week or two, just so you can put something pretty on your truck.

All joking aside, I'm not mad or upset, just screwing with you.
If you have a Auto-zone close they have some build it your self parts, (they are manufactured), shinny aluminum tube with reducers, connectors and filters so you can place your filter where you want it to be, not where some genius engineer just out of college thought everybody should put them. If at all possible, keep it as close to the radiator support as you can, away from the radiator as far as possible and get a heat shield box to help in that department.

LMAO!!

A CAI on a 2.3?? Seriously!! It's a two point three liter engine.

Unless you are tacking it up to 5000RPM on a regular basis. A CAI on this engine is a waste of $$ in my opinion. The very minor difference you will see from a simple K&N drop in filter to a full blown CAI on the 2.3 isn't worth it.

what's wrong with putting a cold air intake on a 2.3 ranger? If the honda folks can do it with much smaller engines why can't we?

Some people in all the forums I visit, seem to think it is waste of your money to put a CAI on any 4 cyl., I don't know whether it is or not. But seeing as you own the truck and want to improve mileage/hp or looks, it is your decision and no one else.
Those who say you don't need to install a CAI believe that the stock system is all that is needed, in other words, a CAI will not benefit you so why waste your money.
I am pretty sure the addition of a gauze/oil air filter of whatever brand would be of benefit, I know it helps the mileage /hp of the 2.9 & 4.0's I have installed them on.
However far you want to go with the upgrades on your truck is up to you. With the price of fuel being what it is today, I would think an increase in mpg of a couple tenths of a mile to the gallon would pay for the air filter upgrade in a year or two at 20000 miles per year.
You own the truck, do what you want, if it helps, so be it, if it doesn't help, I'm sorry.

well if you do the math and all CAI increase the tube (less restrictions)flow rate .
lets say you have a 2.5" tube and you go to a 2.75" or 3, thats increase of almost 7 cfm in to the motor with the 3".
now you remove the filter a give it one thats breathing better some clam up to 10 cfm increase and now you are giving your motor more to breath = better fuel burn age,
better milage do to better performance.
then you put in a good exhaust witch would help more with the expulsion off spent gasses and you will see some sort of increase i would think!

Bought a $25 Spectre cone filter from Autozone and a $10 MAF Sensor adapter plate from eBay. It sits on top of the stock airbox without the lid on it. My engine now has a deep roar, and throttle response has improved. I have no way of telling if it affected MPG, but the feel and sound was way worth $35. Tomorrow i'm removing the snorkel, hope it makes even more of a difference. Next step is to install insulated tubing instead of stock rubber one.

2.5L 2000 Ranger engine by the way

Ok, you can put a storm drain pipe on the intake manifold and have an intake tube the size of the grill. It is still going through a throttle body and intake manifold that is stock size and just a "small" as the original intake tube. AND, just because you now have ability to flow "100,000" CFM through the hose, doesn't mean your engine is actually going to use it.

I think people are trying to tell you spend your money wisely because you only get to spend it once.

You won't get a 6hp gain. Maybe 2 max. Yeah guys in Hondas put intake on smaller engines but that is a ricer mentality. I put an intake on my 97 Honda Civic back when I started driving and I thought I was the fastest car out there. Most people don't really understand engines. Yeah you could put an intake and a V8 and see decent gains but that is because it is a V8. It can suck in a hell of a lot more air than a 4 banger can.

So you can spend all this money on an intake and end up with minimal gains. It will probably hurt you in the end since that open cone will just suck in hot air. If you install a custom intake make sure you shield it from hot air. But in the end remember all you have is a NA 4 banger. Oh and I had an intake on my 4.0 and it didn't do much either so that's why its gone.

Well since my truck doesn't have a tach (yet) I damn sure don't want to find out where this 5200 rpm is to get the whole 6 hp...lol my poor old engine would bust up for sure.
