    This may seem like a dumb question, but what or why is the point of removing the remove the air intake silencer on the new Mustangs.

    Thanks,

    It makes the engine more raspy sounding, and it seems to make it rev a little better. Try removing it and putting in a K&N filter, you'll like it! Some guys claim they gain a little in the quarter mile from removing it too.

    Great sound and more air getting to engine, also some tests show about a 5 hp increase and some say no. :shrug:
