I just removed the Intake Sound Resonator! Damn it sounds deeper. Sounds like i have a rice exhaust when it's in a lower gear (have an auto) Are there any dangers/ warning to be said regarding this? I know it increases HP by prolly .05, but what does it do to gas milage? IF i went one step further and put a cone filter on, would it still have that deep sound? Thanks

it will,

u know what?
I took a pyrographer ( the very thin thing that come very hot, used to burn styrofoam) and I burned the hole square (where the 2" hole is)

Sounds better than just remove the silencer

With the cone filter, it sounds amazing! I noticed a decrease in my gas mileage... but it also got really cold, so I let my car warm up for much longer. I do think it hurt the gas mileage by about 1mpg though.

remove your OEM filter, you will see a hole on the right in the box... just under this theres the resonator... to remove it you have to remove the 4 bolts that hold the air box and after you just remove the screw and remove the resonator... very easy

removing that square thing may reduce the HP. That thing tunes the intake air shock waves so they are timed to enter the throttle body during the downstream wave.

..I know this thread is kinda old, but I have an update.

Thanks to drivinonthinice !!

I went to the j/y and but a new airbox.
Cut bottom out, put breather on VC.
Took out underwater respirator and snorkle.

Car sounds like it has vtec.
Car pulls a little harder.

I am currently conducting an experiment that will show me the difference in gas mileage. I am up-arrow shifting. ALL THE TIME. :)

Thanks again to drivinonthinice
