I took the piece out of the front of the air box that pulls the air off of the fender into the box...to get a more ram air type system...cheaply. Any ideas on this? Since I did it...I've not been running as smoothly. I think I'll put the box back to stock and see. It just doesn't make sense why that would make my car run poorly...is it possible I'm getting too much air?

u can only get as much as as ur maf lets in and ur engine sucks. more ram air effect and open element intake is good if done the right way. wont make to much difference without exhaust tho

just start with the small things..... try replacing the air filter element, then change the spark plugs.... if that doesn't start you on the right track back to a fresh engine then... you might need professional help.
