  • I'll be right down...

Hmmmm, will there be an electrostatic version someday?

I can imagine the popping and snapping would be a bit disturbing though.. :P

My HVAC is starting to get the musty odor syndrome. A really neat idea, and thanks for bringing that over dHD!

yep, i got mine installed on Saturday (before Mo too)...Sorry, it has taken me so long to post about it, but I needed to talk to Tom about his product and what to post about.  He has some great information in his instructions and they represent most of his time and effort. 

IMO the kit is a necessity, when I cut out my duct, I got about 2 handfulls of dirt and leaves out of it, and I could see how dirty my coil was.  I also used (and suggest to anyone else who does it) a can of comressed air (or an air compressor, and yes, i have an air compressor, but, remember I can't do my mods at home :P). And also run the blower for a few minutes w/ the cut out to remove any debris.
I do barely notice the air moving slower (it may be more noticable in the summer) but i'm convinced that coil and fan are the same as an '02 that was designed for a filter.

The install was a snap w/ the instructions provided and it is nice to not have to collect all the parts.  Part of my problem w/ posting about this is was that i thought that this would be cheaper to duplicate as a DIY project, i was wrong.  Also, in my install, I used a razor knife w/ a new blade in it.  And it worked great.  I got pics of my install and will post when I can.

  • got Mo?

Yep, I too got mine installed on Saturday (just an hour or so shy of Damon  :P ) but I did call him for reassurance before I began. I'll admit I was a little nervous and I was going to go the dremel route when Damon told me he used a razor knife....well of course i couldn't find any new blades in the garage for the razor knife so I just used my folding knife (a Kershaw) and it cut through the plastic like butter. Very easy to do...filters went in pretty easy...I didn't get all the crap out like Damon did...just one tiny oak leaf...coil still looked clean and shiney....but I did put the vacuum to it just in case....and ran the blower like he said to.
It's certainly a must-have mod simply for the fact that my truck, now almost a week later doesn't have any dust in it...that, in itself is great...
Can someone do this themselves without buying the kit? Yep. sure can. But was it easy for me to buy the kit and not to have to fab a piece of metal, run to the auto parts store and find a filter...yada yada yada. Yep, it was.
So while I can fully recommend the kit and the ease of having all the instructions,parts,pictures etc. if someone were to come to me at a GTG and ask for help I'd gladly cut into their truck for them and help them attain this mod without the kit. All you'd need would be the cover plate and screw and two filters. If someone is handy enough to make that then you would not need the kit.
I don't want to step on any toes because it is a great mod and I think everyone should do it. Our trucks were made to have this filter and to me the air coming out of the vents smells a lot cleaner. It may run a tad slower but I dont think that it is or will be an issue...

Nice job, Damon.  I'm  glad you were able to cut that with a knife, although I was not brave enough to do that.

Pics look sweet.  I think I may have to order one.  No more dust in the Av is a good enough reason for me.   :A:

Hmm, seems like most people HVAC are the Kit 1/1A versions.
What's the status on the Kit 2? Since mine is identical to that one.

I am working on Kit#2.   I bought a metal brake to help make the bends, but I'm still having trouble duplicating all the bends needed.  I also have to do fit and finish on them, and since they are in 2 planes instead of one, I have to be spot-on.  I love R&D.   :E:

 Trust me, this one is a royal PITA to make.  I hope to have something concrete in the next couple weeks.  I've got 3 people over at the Place asking about them, too.
