It's been thought that hollowing it out or removing it completely will both give the throttle a "throatier" sound and increase airflow.

A buddy of mine took his out completely and replaced it with a piece of PVC to see what would happen (if there were any noticable increases in power. It really didn't make that much difference. Hell, from my experience, a col air kit doesn't really make too much of a difference, just gives the throttle a different sound.

as long as you take out the plastic piece thats before the airbox and put in a k&n filter thats about as far as you can take the factory air system. the plastic piece in front of the box chokes the air flow a lil but thats about it bro

Yeah, what Badinten said is all you have to do.

I have a CAI and like many others have learned that they really don't do anything, I didnt believe that it didn't for a long time, because i thought i could feel it, but there's alot of stats against them.. glad i didnt spend 250+ on mine

now when built right a cai will out perform but like i said it has to be built and away from the heat with fresh air going to it


now in this first pic she worked great until i had to drive in the rain lol. the tire throw the water right into the air filter and i could have built a water blocker but at this time my tools were few and my knowledge was not up to the task at the time.





as you can see here the filter dont stick out as far and this took car of the water prob but just didnt work as good as having the filter sticking out like in the first pic
