2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 AMSOIL BMK-13 Installation

Rough measurements revealed the engine compartment of this 2004 Silverado was just too cramped to cleanly fit the BMK- 13 filter mount with EaO-15 and EaBP-90 Filters. I located a suitable vertical underbody “lip”, inside the frame on the dri- ver’s side, back by the ABS EBCM/Hydraulic manifold (see photos). Before ordering the kit I pre-measured, and figured about a five-foot hose run from the spin-on filter adaptor to the chosen filter mount location and ordered extra hose. I used a BK-11 90-degree fitting kit for the hose to spin-on filter adaptor connection (see photos). I ended up using about 4′ 8″ of hose for each line, so eight feet might do the job with a little tighter routing.

The AEM Brute Force Intake System is the result of extensive development on a wide variety of cars. It is the most advanced short pipe air intake system on the market. Each system is specifically engineered for its particular application. All AEM Brute Force Intake Systems deliver maximum performance gains through the lightweight, all- aluminum, mandrel-bent tubing that is tuned in both length and diameter. The tube length and diameter are matched for each specific engine to give power over a broad RPM range. Every intake is coated with a high-gloss, heat-reducing Zirconia based powder coating. This special blend of powder coating helps reduce heat penetration, which in turn reduces the temperature of the inlet air charge.

2. Put the transmission in Park or 1st gear (manual transmissions) and chock the rear tires.
3. Raise the front of the vehicle using a jack. Raise it enough to completely unload the front suspension. Place a jack stand under each frame rail just behind the lower control arms for the front suspension. Ease the frame down on to the stands, but leave a slight load on the jack as a safety precaution.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado HD Crew Z71
Taking cues from Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s “Big Red” Silverado that debuted at SEMA in 2006, the ’08 Silverado HD Crew Z71 Big Red demonstrates how that expressive concept’s unique features would look with production-type components.
