3x3 mod

Recommended Posts

I can feel you all thinking here we go again. But i have a very quick simple question.

The 3 inch by 3 inch opening.

Does it matter where the top left of the hole starts? Should i use the top left of the original hole or do i need to start higher?

My k and n turned up today so im itching to get started.:thumbsup:

I cut a 3x3 square of carboard. I then placed the cardboard over the existing hole in a way to allow the CDI to mount back on its posts and to use whatever amount of the exisitng hole that I could.

when I was happy w the placement I traced the outline of the cardboard onto the top of the airbox w a sharpie and cut it w a hotknife

Thanks, what's easiest? Hot knife or circular saw?

i used a hole saw then got a torch and heated up a razor blade to clean up the rest of it

Try using a 3 inch putty knife or scraper. Get it good and hot with a torch and press it into the plastic. It should literally cut through like a hot knife through butter and it will cut an exact 3x3 shape with 4 cuts.

that's a good idea. Only problem is i don't have access to a torch at the moment. Ill probably just do the circular saw method

might sound like a dumb question but would a ceramic hob get it hot enough? Please dont laugh
