I've started to lightly mod the car. By now everyone must know my opionion about the stock airbox being good with the 5 inch fender air hole through the bottom. Well, today I pulled out the passenger side headlight assembly to gain access to the airbox intake tube/resonator and pulled it out. As the pic below shows it is somewhat restrictive with the resonator bellows. After I removed it, I test drove the car. Right off the bat the engine sounded a tad deeper at idle. When I took it out on the street and gave it WOT, it responded with a very nice (almost v-8) growl, just as a CAI would do. It also has more pulling power as well. My K&N panel filter will be here Monday from Fox Performance so it should be even better after that.
