    Yes and yes. heres a pic of mine for reference. in the first one, you can kind of see the hole where air gets into the airbox. In the second one, you can compare yours and see where the ram air scoop is gone and the hole in the fender (where it attached to the silencer) is taped up. these should help a lot.

    edit sorry for the big pics...

    Atif, if you're really serious about learning about cars, one of the best ways is to take a course. Most community colleges offer automotive technology courses, and certain high schools have programs that allow you to take classes at community colleges for high school elective credit. If that isn't an option for you, then I recommend checking out books from the library on the basics of how internal combustion engines work. Another good source is www.howstuffworks.com, I highly recommend the write up on turbochargers and transmissions. My sister is 15-years old, and knows very little about cars, but she wanted to know how a turbo works so I had her read that, and now she understands. Aside from that, hands on experience is priceless. Try to meet up with other Suby drivers in your area and watch/help them install parts. Check the regional forums here and on NASIOC, and I-Club. Usually different regions all stick to one forum, and I think most of the east coasters post on NASIOC.
