Air silencer removal

Thought I'd play around with the car a bit and have some fun! Heard about taking the air silencer off of the stock air box (I refuse ti get a CAI as I will be putting in a new twin screw in places of old turbos) for an added boost and a little more noise. I will say, there was a little increase in throttle response/pull but not a lot (what do you expect for a free mod?) But I will say, it sounds a hell of a lot better! The rushing air sounds much better than stock with k and n drop in filter, sounds like the swoosh of my air intake on my turbo set up! All you have to do is pull the rubber off of the end of the stock airbox. It is barely held on and comes of in 5 seconds, its legitimately that easy and quick. Just a little helpful hint for you stock guys or guys that don't have a CAI to gain a little more pull and a little more sound!

Yea removing air silencer was first thing I did when I got my car, did improve throttle response and a bit more noise..but I eventually said screw it and got a cai and it sounds 1,000 times better..no advantage other than sound but it whistles nice

I removed mine, the engine does sound a little louder and a lot throatier, especially when getting on it.

I did this back on my 95 before getting a CAI, but didn't know this for my 07. I will have to give it a try. I know it was the thing to do back in the foxes.

On your stock air intake box, there is a rubber piece that is rectangular going in toward your fender. It is just resting there, you can just take it off.

That is not worth anything


It goes into the fender to grab cooler air not it's sucking hot air

Actually its not to suck colder air..... its to reduce air intake and to silence sound of rushing air into ans through filter. A cold air intake is a little longer than stock to reach the inner fender and grab colder air. The air SILENCER is strictly to silence rushing air.

Just to be sure...it's the square piece of rubber on the right side of the airbox near the bottom right?

Wait, what? You have a k&n filter and the stock intake pipe, but you claim your running a turbo setup already? And your planning to swap that for a turbo setup? My Wtf metre is running pretty high right now.

"Replace twin screw for old turbos". I didn't like the turbo set up, didn't have the instant tire shredding fun of a kenne bell/whipple so I took them off, put my stock intake box back on and am saving for a blower. Re read it and you will see that you were reading it wrong. "Sounds like the intake of my turbo set up" is of my previous turbo set up.
