Default Stock Intake

I should probably just save my cash and get an intake, but for now. I head that taking the hose from the resonator tub and disconnecting it from the like 4" (94 SL!) pipe that comes from the airbox and letting it hang open gives more air. I dunno if it works, just wondering what you all think cause it seems that if you take it apart like that the noise would def. be bigger at higher RPM's but would the power increas at all cause the air flowing in is more direct?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

What I did to my airbox before I added RAM air to my car...

Removed resonater...

Then...later, I cut the tube that extends into the airbox short so it only sticks in a couple inches. At this time I also cut a large square hole in the bottom of the box (giving it an absolutely wicked sound and MUCH improved flow). I also put a piece of tape over the hole left from removing the resonator as the air coming from that side has been warmed by the engine. I also sanded the edges in the airbox cover where it goes to the pipe so that flow would be smoother. I also removed the horizontal ridges on the top cover to aid laminar flow even more.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default HOLES?

Cut a hole in your airbox? Where did you cut the hole? Underneath the filter?

I cut the hole in the BOTTOM of the box...

I drilled out 4 holes and cut a square out (approx 2.5*2.5"
