Pics coming!

Step 1 - Remove clips for Air Box
Step 2 - Lift up lid to Air box
Step 3 - Rip out top carbon filter from Air Box
Step 4 - put lid back on


Thats it... The carbon filter restricts air flow, by taking it out, you'll increase airflow... your ECU won't throw any codes or a CEL, no need to reset the ECU... just rip it out and drive... you'll notice a bit more throttle response and when at WOT (Wid Open Throttle) you'll notice a MUCH more agressive sound from the Intake.

Another further step you could do is dremel, cut, smooth out the network of ribs on the top half of the airbox. This will free up some breathing room for the intake it's a lot of work for minimal gain. Whistling of the intake is normal since more air is passing through the MAF sensor due to the K&N filter. This can be annoying if you're easily bothered.

Think I will wait until I can afford a CAI. Leaning towards the AirAid CAI. I like the way it looks. Lots of complaints on the noise level of it but I have a few ideas on making it more quiet.
