Air Silencer Removel

  1. I recently removed my air silencer. Now can anyone tell me, does this actually add power? I've read postes where people claim that there is actually a loss of power because if it sucking hot air into the intake. In my opinion I really can't believe the temp is that much diffrent then then temp there the silencer sucks air, any views?
  2. not really a big difference, if any. I never noticed anything when I did it. It probably won't cause any difference in intake'd be getting air from a 8" difference in locations.......think about it
  3. It doesn't matter man.
  4. yeah, we have all tried the "free" modifications, and they don't work. HP costs money, bottom line.
  5. Mine is off - I like the increased intake sound for more PERCEIVED power. A friend with an '03 GT auto has an off idle hesitation with the snorkel off - my 5 speed runs fine.
  6. My opinion is best summed up by quoting a famous wrestling star "It doesn't matter!" If anyone really wanted to know the difference they would test it with a dyno run. Unfortunately the difference is so minuscule that its not worth wasting your time. The only reason I left mine off before I got my CAI is becuase it sounded different.
  7. smazzy check my post above. :D
  8. I think the sound alone is worth the time to take it out.
    Let's face it it only takes like 2 mins to take out.
    It turned my check engine light on. So, I whent over to
    a friends house and we used a programer to delete the
    problems. It runs fine now.
  9. If you're going to get a CAI than do it but other than that not worth it.
  10. it sounds better with it off and it's not any differacne in air temp lees you sitting in traffic for 2 hours on a 90 degree day, with no air comming in under the hood...
  11. I removed mine... and then put it back on along with a custom ram air system...and when i rev it up you can feel it sucking the air in...its niiice
  12. Can someone tell me how to take the air silencer off??? I just want to see what it sounds like. I have a 97 V6, thanx
  13. I've read about making a ram air for it, what did you use to make yours, do you think it actually works?
  14. flex hose from the air silencer down the fender down to the fog light opening...
  15. Does it actually give you a noticable increase in hp if you do it this way? If so, how big of flex tubing do you need??
  16. no, it doesn't do anything.
  17. My friend said he could tell a difference the faster he went... and i can feel a little on the high end...3" felx hose...
  18. if you do it on both sides then it's more noticable but make sure you use a double ended filter so it can take in air from the fender while it's not moving too fast...
