Air Box Mod Idea?
I did the airbox mod to my car about 3000 miles ago (i only know that because I'm due for an oil change soon) I followed the directions that were on the forum and I got great results.
The other day however I had a thought that maybe removing the "tuba" in the front of the box and covering the hole with tape or whatever to block radiator heat, actually might not let you get the full performance upgrade.
So today I decided just to put the tuba back onto the box. Because to me it makes more sense to have more air going into it rather than covering up potential intakes. I could be wrong though. I'll keep you guys posted to see if it makes any difference good or bad.
