Default How To: Air Silencer Removal (Cold Air Intake)

Maybe a tad bit different on a newer truck

Warning: No harm can come from this Mod. Some dealerships will try to fault any mod as a reason to deny warranty service, but this mod is not only hard to spot, but its completely reversible if you have second thoughts.

Tools Required:
-WD40
-Your hands

Start by following the instructions in your owners manual to remove the air filter. Picture one picks up from there:









It will take a good bit of tugging to break this loose the first time. Make sure it doesn't catch on any hoses or wires in the area.








It will take some wiggling around to get the bottom tabs to engage their holes. Again be sure not to catch any hoses or wires underneath the box as you push it back in!

U dont add anything to it just remove that one piece

Gains are not spending several hundred dollars on a aftermarket cold air intake

Then we probably have the same one. Did you do yours? What did you have to do differently?

I dont have a factory air box anymore. I have a aftermarket intake. It was 4 years ago I would have to look at the air box in the garage and take pictures to show

be careful when putting the air box back in, i didn't realize the the hose for the radiator reservoir was underneath the box and when i pushed it down it pulled the hose off the reservoir tank. otherwise no problems and really easy to do thanks

Below left you can see the Air Muffler and the baffle. The air muffler (on the left) goes between the air cleaner and the throttle body. The baffle to the right of it comes off the front of the air cleaner inside the body of your Ranger above the wheel well. As you can see in the picture below right, the air muffler was replaced with a piece of stainless but you can use PVC pipe. This will allow more air flow into your motor, increase HP, and make your motor a little bit louder. Your air cleaner is in two (2) parts; air cleaner canister, and mass air flow sensor. Open your air cleaner and remove the air filter, then unbolt the can in which the filter was in, when you pull the can off, the baffle will be attached to it. Remove the baffle, and reinstall the air cleaner. This will add more air flow, HP, and sound to your Ranger.

It wont sound like a jet engine but it wont sound like a ricer exhaust either.

It is a minimal increase in noise noticeable if you know your truck well enough
