    Finaly after many onion layers we have air filter. Suprised to find it bolted in.
    Just in time replacement. OEM filter is super expensive at 60 dollars. Saved a bunch with hiflo filter, actually ended up getting it for free.



    Interesting looking resonating chambers inside air filter box. Toss it? Yea right

    Really slow taking coolant. Thankfully I was able to assemble adapter to my uni funnel that fit big boy filler neck. Lots of hose massage to have it burping.
    Got it done.
    Last minute doubts about Prestone 50/50 being silica free but checked ok.

    Tried 10% HCl solution on the front open pipes. It worked great. From mess like this





    To this



    I am done for now as the back side is to close to the other components for my comfort.


    I will remove whole header later on to give it proper HCl cleaning then passivation.
