Post Air Intake Resonator Removal

I'm really bored because I have alot of time to kill. What I would like to do is remove the air intake resonator but do not know how. Anyone here done this before? I'm buying a better drop-in filter soon and figured I might as well remove the resonator to free up a little more air flow. ANY help would be appreciated

B.C.

(Step by step?) instructions there.

Also another take on it at the SVX FAQ: http://my.voyager.net/tmclane/#_Toc482082561

Let me know how it goes.

Hey Never2Phat,
I removed the intake silencer in the fender well of my Legacy GT. It wasn't too complicated. I don't know if I noticed any performance change other than maybe just thinking that it felt more peppy. I'm running an Amsoil TS-74 drop in panel filter in mine, which is the same as what the SVX would use.

At idle, it sounds like there is a vacuum cleaner running under the hood. It's not a woosh sound, and it's not a high pitched sound. It's kind of like an 'air hum'. It goes away just a little above idle speed. At WOT you can really tell it's sucking in the air. It makes a different type of sound that is also hard to describe. Maybe on an SVX it'll be different. Let us know what you think.

Question

Rich,

How much oil do you usually apply to one of those filters after cleaning it? (wondering if one 8oz. would be enough?)

Thumbs up

The filter comes pre-oiled from the factory, so you don't have to do anything at first. Just put it in. After you clean it, 8 oz. is plenty. In fact, I think you could almost get two cleanings out of it, but it's relatively cheap and you only have to do it once a year, so you might as well use it. Let me know if you've got any more questions.

Good deal! Glad you like it. I'm always willing to try to help out if I can. Sorry if I push Amsoil too much sometimes. They've got excellent products, but not much adverstising, and I'm enjoying my affiliation with them. I'm just trying to get my 'business' going!
