FREE Performance Mod

I did this on my 2004 auto and seems to have a quicker response but not sure if it's in my head. Your air filter will be more exposed to dirt but I don't wouldn't worry bout it unless you live on a dirt road.

Took me about 20 minutes and I don't know **** about cars.

You wont see any real gains by doing this. Some have seen actuall loses by taking it off

don't rip if off... then you're sucking hot engine air unless you're moving kinda fast. A better thing to do is to cut it so it's still drawing air from the fender, and yet the opening is much larger.... This gave me a little bit quicker I think. I was still drawing cold air, yet it was a larger area of tube it could pass through.. but that's all behind me, I spent the $40ish on a CAI from Ebay... works very good

Definately not the best mod to do. And just about every car will see a loss in power do to the fact you're now sucking in hotter air. I think I would put this on my top 10 of what not to do. Sorry to have pissed in your cherrios.

I tried it,didn't feel any gain at all.I put it back on.Just cut the opening back to enlarge the air intake,that works.Cooler air with a little more draw.

there is no hp gain from it, u just get a deeper exhaust note (on rangers it does atleast) on another forum a guy dyno'ed before and after, no change in HP just a deeper sound.

I did it on mine about 3 weeks ago and I thought I felt a quicker response...might of just wanted to feel a gain. I'll run it today w/o then slap it back on then I'll make a decision to leave the air silencer, cut it, or leave it off. I did buy a k & n filter w/ chrome tubing from ebay yesterday and plan on receiving it on Thursday. I know there's no better substitute than full length CAI. I'll be using your how to install CAI guide...thanks.

I put the air silencer back in place and I cut the opening to make it bigger but still left it long enough to draw its air out of the fenderwell. I really do think I feel and extra something. I would recommend this to those who aren't hardcore, don't plan on spending any money on modifying their car but still want an extra pop.

Immediately after putting it on I went to try it out w/ my friend who's got an 89 IROC Z28 and I took him out. I'm not saying it was cuz of the air silencer but still. He claims that his care was stalling a bit but I didn't hear any funny noises.

In other words..the head dyno felt gains lol. Not the butt dyno. You wanted gains, so you got gains...kinda like when I put a K&N filter on I swear I could feel a difference..eventhough i know damn well there wasn't one.

v6's = no gain or loss. Theres just not the same amount of air restrcition in the 3.8's for it to matter. Yes pete cambell did dyno it and it was a -5rwhp loss on a 3.8 motor.
But the engine was hot, the day was hot, and there were other factors invovled in that dyno as well which i now forget.

The GT's and Cobras will gain from this however.
MM&FF actually did this to the 03 cobra for a + 13 rwhp gain. Yes, they actually did dyno it for some reason. LOL.

cheap mods like cutting springs and home made cais like that are all a waste of time and money... i used to be young/cheap/poor/16 and tried all of that only to get no where
