Air box sound tube removal

I tried searching all over but couldn't find an answer for this. I know taking off the sound tube will make it loud in the cabin. If I only remove the tube from the airbox will it make the airbox louder? I don't want more noise in the cabin just trying a cheap way for a cai. Will it make it louder or should I just not waste my time?

You already have a CAI. If you dont want the sound tube you can pull it off and use some rubber grommets to seal up the hole in the air box and the firewall.

Your stock air box is a cai. From the factory. All the sound tube does is send noise into your cabin. If you delete it, it just deadens the sound of your motor to the inside of the cab. That's all

If you want it louder inside the car pull the sound tube loose from the fire wall and remove the wad of foam that's stuffed in the end

Very true. Only problem is the OP stated he doesn't want the cabin noise. He's better off just pulling the sound tube.

I removed mine all together just recently. I already had the cai, cat deletes, and ab's on the car. The cai I have came with a rubber cap and hose clamp to block off the hole in the cai tube plus a plug for the fire wall. I'm not sure if its because my car is already pretty loud or if the factory sound tube didn't function correctly but there was NO noticeable difference of sound from inside the car with the sound tube off/deleted

$12 isn't bad at all. Might have to grab this kit. I've been wanting to get rid of the sound tube.

The kit also includes 2 firewall grommets. One solid and one with a wire pass-through you can use for gauges or whatever. Very handy.

DID this also here are part numbers

First up is the DORMAN MASTER CYLINDER GASKET part# 42098 purchased at Advanced Auto for under 7 BUCKS.

Second is HILLMAN ROUND CAP PLUGS 1 3/4" I believe this is the part# H#884315 This was purchased at Lowes in the hardware isle and was in the furniture parts drawer and comes 2 in a pack for 4 Bucks.
These parts fit great and I secured the intake elbow cap with a 1 5/8" - 2 1/4" hose clamp
Thanks to uncoolron for posting up the master cylinder gasket number.

I pulled mine off, and I don't think it got any louder in the cabin!
I think it actually got quieter!

You're welcome. For a cleaner look, I used a thin black zip tie for a cleaner look for the round cap plug and it never moved. I thought the hose clamp is an over kill and it's awful looking.

Mine too got quieter. I pulled it out because of my Pypes AB drone around 1800 RPM and it helped.

FYI - Amazon has that Dorman gasket for $5

Amazon.com: Dorman HELP! 42098 Master Cylinder Gasket: Automotive

You can use any vacuum cap that fits and a zip tie on the intake tube. Should be able to piece it together for less than $12 if you want, but it's not an outrageous price.

I appreciated the stealth bomber thinking that went into it, you get the noise you like but, the car isn't advertising itself to all and sundry. problem is, the sound just wasn't "right" because it was coming from ahead of the throttle plate so, it was kind of asynchronous slightly on timing and didn't sound like combustion aftereffects do.

So if I'm reading thi correctly.... They should run a sound tube from the exhaust into the cabin!!
Not to be confused with running the EXHAUST into the cabin!!! Lol

But that would have made more sense (intake was probably easier and cheaper to do though)

Yeah, that's right. However, as you suggest, it's pretty hard to do that. BMW has a musical score it plays in its M5, which is just hilarious....

Here is what I did to mine. Put back the sound tube so not to lose it and just put the doorman gasket in the firewall.

Not bloody likely, gay people have good taste and respect for their neighbours generally, at least in my experience.
