Honestly it shouldn't be anything noticeable, if any at all.

Honestly you shouldn't see any at all. It doesn't change anything and if it did it would give better

Only way to tell is to take it off and find out. Don't want to buy a CAI right now.

No noticeable increase/decrease in mpg or power with silencer off here ... I didn't notice any increase in sound, but I have a loud exhaust...got a cai and sounds so much better, can actually hear it now, again no increase in power or mpg tho, just engine look and sound..

Lol the air intake silencer just muffles the whooshing sound of the air coming in that you can sometimes hear with a CAI or with it removed. I never heard it with the car running, when I turn my car off in the garage I can hear it make a little noise but that's it. No idea why you'd think it would make your exhaust louder. If you want your exhaust to sound different, get an exhaust...

Haha i saw a guy say more air in means your exhaust is going to be louder.... I was like what?? Is he serious!? I've never had an intake do anything for my car or exhaust.
