Spot 3

So What are these?, why do you guys have those filters on them?, should i do that to mine?, and what does it do?

IIRC, the stock air intake had a hose that went to the valve cover, when you put on a CAI,
the little filter (about $5-10 at the parts store), slips right onto the fitting to cap off the opening.
at least thats what i see in the 2nd pic, looks like a standard CAI set up, in fact looks like the way i have mine,
the other 2 pics, i'm not 100% sure, but #2 looks like a homemade CAI that many guys make/use, or an Iceman like i have.

Nothing was mentioned about the battery tray. What all needs to be modified to get the intake to fit? I bought the pipe. 14" I cut it in half. Also cut the 3.0 tube as pictured.

My battery posts are the opposite end that is pictured and I have a single fan DOHC motor. Any tips?

the stock battery tray needs to be cut somewhat for the CAI to fit...
