you'll notice that your supercharger is louder but you won't notice an increase in power.

Well to get an increase in power you will need a high flow filter. I have this done and it is considerably louder. You can hear your SC whine throughout 2nd and 3rd and some into 4th. I received the power gains but like i said I am using a k&n filter. It is pretty loud but not annoyingly so.......

SO the super charge wine diminishes after 110mph when your into fouth and starting to approach the 30 degree bank of Daytona. it is drowned out by the forces of air creating noise around the car just before breaking the sound barrier and from all the peeling paint off the car. as the car ECOTEC engine approaches 8500 RPM and you just about to grab 5th gear to get Jeff Gordon and Mark Martin off your tail the ECOTEC engine throws a rod due to the cast piston in #3 cylinder disintegrates from the forces of the EATON pressure. then I woke up ...yes it was a wet dream .... again....

did I get carried away?

^^^^ I have no idea what you were rambling on about.

As for doing all of that work for the airbox mod. Well it takes about 15 mins to do it correctly so....... it is not a lot of work at all. You will be greatly benefited by purchasing a high flow cylindrical filter and then take the bottom off. Too me there would not be much reason to take the bottom off and leave the stock filter in. I am sure your SC will whine but why would you want all show and no go ? I can go back to completely stock in 15 mins with the way I did mine so it works out pretty good.

your going to notcie a big difference in sound if you take the cover off., you aren't going to notcie any increase in power though. also, you'll have to find a way to secure the stock filter, using some sort of straps and screws into the airbox. if you get a hi flow filter, most come with clamps and then you just drill one hole in the side of the airbox for a screwdriver to tighten it and your good. and if you ever need to go back to stock, just put the filter and cover back in, and if you drill the hole in the airbox on a part that you can't see, no one will ever notice.

Ok... I check out that post.....1 question.

When I 1st bought the SS, I was thinking to myself... "where the $#%^% is the aibox/filter??!?!?

So this answers that one, but raises another.... Is that what we have to go thru just to change the air filter?? even if we're just planning on leaving the car stock??? If so, I want to meet a few of the "geniuses" that designed the car and thank them with a nice big cup of Whoop-axx!

How insane is that? Maybe it's in the best spot due to packaging, performance, etc... but make it a bit easier for us to change out the filters even if it's a stock swap.
