So I replaced my air filter tonight.......

And it sure seemed like there was alot of crud built up in the velocity stacks and surrounding area.

Anyone else seen this? the picture shows one of many alcohol wipes i used to clean her up.

I inspected the airbox and it seems like everthing is sealed fine.

I put a thin layer of wheel bearing grease on the floor of the air box
by the throtle bodies and where the air tubes connect, this way if the dirt comes in it will get caught by the grease instead of going down the throttle bodies.
