I've never built a box this big before, and i want to do it right. IA's sight says that the average for 1 DP is 2.5 cubes w/ 35 inches. So do you think I should go for 10^3 and 140 inches of port? :confused:

I was thinking a little more pot area, closer to 200 inches. but i don't know how much space i've got. :crap: I think my max below the window line is about 10.5 without ANY displacements, so after drivers i'll already be down to about 9.5...suggestions?

I think 9-10ish cubes with 140-150ish sq inches of port area would be pretty darn good :)

And even down to 8 cubes you'd be just fine...so dont sweat that IMO

i think i can squeeze about 8.5 net out of it. i'm running the same type of box that hunter is doing in his mazda. this will come a lot later mind you, i need to do a lot of work to that truck. dyno first, but i've gotta get those other two DP's while they're on sale
