My Kubota / Powertech transplant had a Dupree filter on it and while it was excellent for better breathing, it was very noisy.



I'm always looking for ways to reduce the noise level in the generator and you can purchase a this air filter that will help do that directly from Powertech, http://powertech.myshopify.com/produ...leaner-housing




I decided I would try to come up with my own and I had a K&N style cleanable filter laying around my shop so I made this canister for it in hopes that it would reduce the droning noise of the air intake, here is how I did it.



The new filter fits right inside the same area as the old Dupree filter



NOTE; After using this setup for over 6,000 miles the results are very good as it significantly reduced the air intake noise.
