Weren't you the guy in the members gallery forum that posted he's not racist and then made a racist comment? Anyway, The intake silencer delete is in the fender well of your passenger side. Just remove it and this allows you to hear your turbo spool and BPV slightly better. Doesn't harm anything far as I know and there have been ppl running them for a LONG time with no issues.

Do a search on "snorkus removal". If you can't find any info here, look on Scoobymods.com also.

Basically you will get a much more freely flowing intake without the issues surrounding CAIs.

I did this on my '04 and bought 2 pieces of 3" Sch40 PVC pipe from Home Depot to ensure cold air is drawn from inside the fender well. I also bought the fender plug to cap off the opening in the fender where the stock intake went through. Works great.

I still don't understand why ppl plug that fender hole where the "ram" air comes in, don't you guys want that cold air that's flowing through?

If you leave the cold air ram portion of the stock intake, you would get cold air. I personally wanted to remove it to make more room in the engine bay. I don't like clutter and there is plenty of cold air to be had from inside the fender well. To each his own.

Here, I'll try to summarize what everyone is saying. You basically have two main options when removing the intake silencer:

1. Plugging the hole to where the ram air would normally go--the idea being that you draw cold air from just the fender. You can buy an OEM plug for it that looks nice (I think older RS's have 'em, not sure), or just plug it some how (I used heavy-duty weather resistant duct tape).

2. Leave the "ram air" scoop and either leave it like that or connect it to the airbox with an elbow of some sort (GP Moto makes one)--the idea being that you will be drawing cold air from outside the car.

I used scoobymods.com instructions when I did it--I've had this setup for close to a year and I haven't had a single problem. There haven't been any noticable increases in power, and I doubt there were any in the first place. Some people clame to feel an increase, but I believe that is just a placebo effect.

Yes, it's just a placebo effect and the sound difference isn't all that much louder, especially if you have a cat-less TBE....

Lol, sure but it's not how you worded it. Anyways, that's off-topic and already underway in the actual thread.
