I TOOK THE TOP PART OF MY STOCK AIRBOX OFF TO SEE IF IT WOULD MAKE MY DV LOUDER AND IT DID. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS THAT I WAS NOT ABLE TO TAKE TO ENTIRE TOP PIECE OFF BECUASE IT IS ATTACHED TO THE ENTIRE INTAKE. SO I DID NOT HEAR HOW IT SOUNDS DRIVING BUT I DID REV IT AND I COULD HEAR IT WHEN I LET OFF THE GAS. KINDA LIKE A BOV.
I've heard of people doing this but havent' heard any positive or neg about it. I was actually thinking about doing this because my Turbo XS DV sits high and pushes the engine cover up a little, and with my strut bar finally on, it's a real tight fit for it. Thomas, WU, Big, do you guys have any input on this?
