I have been searching the forum for pics and articles for anyone that has a k&n fipk with a dual battery. I would like to purchase the Dirty Parts kit... but it will not work with k&n. I am sure there is another way, I dont want to have to buy another intake plus the dirty kit, Id be out $600 plus batteries!!! Any help is appreciated.

There are 2 K&N intakes out there. I had the black intake and loved it, but there was zero room for dual battery. There is a chrome intate that uses a smaller filter and uses a straight tube design instead of looping around like the black one. It's worth checking into.

unfortunatley I have the black one that loops all over the place...why am I thinking I am going to have to buy a new intake. Right now I have 2 stereo amps, 6 PIAA lights, and a winch hooked up to the factory battery... The wife will be pissed when she sees the snorkel delivered! lol

Lol. Yeah, that black intake won't work with a snorkel. You'll need an intake with a box or go back to stock. Then you can do the second battery. Second option, go with a yellow top optima. Great batteries!

With a snorkel you will need to go with an AFE or TRD intake to accommodate a second battery on the passenger side. The stock intake takes up too much room also. I tried to fit a group 31 battery and it hit the intake so I ended up buying a TRD intake to make it fit.
