    Post Check out my clean mod

    For those of you who have not yet done the intake resonator mod. Here is a recommended suggestion. This is the way I did it and gained results. Check the pics below.

    And then I cut off a piece from the resonator box, using tools like a soldering iron and a saw. and heated the plastic piece to the bottom of the upper piece hence:

    I hate to say this, since you obviously took some time to plug up the hole where the resonator was. But........do you realize that if you left that open - or replaced the entire piece with a velocity stack in the airbox opening - that you'd have a presurized CAI and eliminate the 180deg kink in the intake track?

    ya I was thinking about leaving it open but I wanted to use the intake ram so, I dont think it really makes that much of a difference.

    I would leave the hole open if I were you, that way you will pull air from the ram air scoop and the fenderwell. I cut mine the same way only a little higher up near the inlet/outlet.

    Ha ha ha!

    Seems like you went thru all that trouble for nothing, by closing the opening on the bottom.

    Not really, it only took about 5 min to do, although It was very hot in my garage If you look, there is a small hole at the bottom of my mod. So I guess that would draw in some air from the lower fender. Anyways, the results are the same either way open or closed.

    I left the stock "ram intake" in place where it may blow some cooler air. Who knows?

    Then removed the air box, cut out the nylon gasket, and took a 3.5 ID rubber elcbow from Home Depot. There was a lot of cutting, snipping and trimming of the hose, but it fits well into the fender and seals to the air box.

    You can hear it sucking at WOT and the stock BOV can be heard.

    I use an ITG filter panel.

    Getting "all fancy" cost me about $5.00 and 1/2 hour of time. Maybe less. (Time and Money).
