You definitely need to remove the filter box with its housing, but you can get it off without unbolting - those will slide out. Kind of hard to explain.I finally got around to the ribbon delete this afternoon. No problem , both ribbons removed in less than an hour. However , I spent the next 30 minutes trying to jiggle , twist , pry , etc. the snorkel from the air filter housing. Got afraid I was going to crack or break something and gave up !! Any tips or more pics would be greatly appreciated. I know that @swatski said is was NOT necessary to remove the filter housing from the engine compartment front bulkhead but I just could not get the feel for doing it. I would really like to give it another shot in order to achieve max benefit from the mod ? Am I wiggling the filter housing off the bulkhead OR wiggling the snorkel out of the housing?
Unless your filter is in bad shape you are unlikely to see any major difference. Maybe 50 RPM gain - in a N/A engine. It could be different with a SC.Has any of you tried removing the filter too? Mph change?
I'm guessing there is no point doing a cold air intake with a SC? I cant see it helping the charge temps.Unless your filter is in bad shape you are unlikely to see any major difference. Maybe 50 RPM gain - in a N/A engine. It could be different with a SC.
Fairly easy to check - almost no tools required to pull the air box on the water. Running without it for a while will not hurt anything.
