If you don't mind the extra sound, go for it. It wouldn't harm anything really.

Depends on what your goal is. Will it make the car louder? Maybe a little... Will you lose power? Perhaps.

Lose power? I'd love to see an explanation of that!

It's a turbulence reducer... but you'd have to plug the holes with something.

I'm probably over-thinking this - I'm thinking about tumble control and harmonics that engineers build into intakes to allow air to flow better into the combustion chamber for a better mixture.

I realize that if your goal is high-rpm, WOT performance the less restriction the better as a general rule - don't know what the implications are for the whole powerband though. Probably not significant either way, but just a thought.

ive just heard from friends with similiar apparatus's on their cars gained a little power and noise =( when they removed them.... as there would be a straight shot into the airbox instead of these resonators...

Now if you're talking about the silencer assembly in front of the airbox, yes, I did have positive experiences removing it. We call it the snorkus here in the Subaru community.

Not many of you guys are reading. The OP is talking about the long cylindrical dead-end pipes that come directly off the intake pipe between the MAF and the throttle body.

Yeah. Like I said, it probably wouldn't affect performance noticably, and would just add a little noise.

I got 2-3 mpg better gas milage when I combined it with a K@N drop-in filter. I never had an issue with water getting sucked in or anything either.

Dude you're not reading the topic are you? He's not talking about the resonator section PRE-filter...
