    You're not removing the factory airbox (which has a filter), just the snorkus from the fender

    +1 uuumm.........yeah if you planned on removing the whole airbox maybe this mod isn't for you. Regardless even if you leave the snorkus on what makes you think sand won't end up at the same place as it would with out it?

    Bringing this thread back form the dead!

    Does this apply to the 2010 WRX model? Is there an air silencer to remove? Guess I need to get more familiar with my car.

    Yes, I just did this on my 2010. Takes 2 minutes - loosen the two plastic screws holding the snorkel in place at the front of the engine and it comes right out.

    You removed the front air scoop,which I suggest putting back in.

    +1. The part your trying to delete is in your front passenger side fender. Youll need to remove pins in the wheel well to get to it. Also theres a couple bolts holding it on, super easy though. Did mine when I put my intake on, took 15 mins max including the SR install.

    Just did this mod to my 02 and I LOVE the sound. It also feels like the turbo spools a little faster even if not by much. Thanks for such a thorough write-up, only took 20 minutes or so.

    Apologies for bringing this back, but you don't need to remove the front wheel or even jack up the car to get the silencer out.

    +1 on this.

    I just cranked the wheel to the right until full lock, then unclipped the the outer clips around the wheel well, plus the two underneath. For the silencer bolt located inside the wheel well, just remove the fog light (three Philips screws on the outside, plus the power plug in back), and the bolt is easily accessible right behind the fog light hole.

    I just wiggled the silencer around until it came out. The underbody protector flexes quite a bit, so don't worry too much about tearing it, just watch what you're doing, and you should be fine.

    I was doing this on a slight incline in the rain, so I wasn't interested in jacking up the car for any reason. This way only took me 20 minutes or so and was easy peasy

    This maybe a silly question...
    I'm going to attempt to do this today.

    The question is, I don't know where to get the elbow and I kind of just want to do it without looking or waiting for one.
    So is there a possible way I could cut off the bottom of the silencer and tape it I think I've heard of this but I'm not sure...
    Any advice?
