Has anyone removed the filters from the torque tubes to clean them? I can't figure out how to get them off. I loosened the clamps but they won't budge. I don't wanna break anything trying to force them.

Take a set of channel locks and grab it where the filter sets on the intake. You should not have to squeeze the hell out of it. If you have ever changed out a radiator hose you have probably had this problem.

I don't know about the jackpot but on the Vegas you can get to the one on the left side. If you get it off it should open up enough room to get to the other one.

I figured you had already tried to us your hands. If not I would definitely try that first.

loosen the clamps now spray the tubes with WD40 where the filter meets the tubes. With in a minuet they will be loose. Now twist filter with hand and pull off.

I couldn't budge it by hand, that's why I was asking. The whole intake was moving around. I stopped bc i didn't want too break anything.

I loosen the hose clamps with a screwdriver, then I usually use my feet or my teeth to take the filters off. By hand is just too simple, not much of a challenge. :D

That pair of pod filters and hose clamps are tough... but don't let 'em whip ya.
Lol. Someone mentioned channel locks, that's why I asked. The whole intake assembly was moving, I didn't wanna break anything when I was trying by hand.
