2.2 Airbox Mod

Well, there's absolutely no how to's here, so i guess i should chip in while i'm here... to do this airbox mod for the 2.2 (will also be the same for the 2.4) jack up the front passenger side, take off the wheel, remove the clips in the fenderliner... once you get the fenderliner back, you will see this obnoxiously large peice of plastic there... it is held on by a screw and a few plastic clips... take off the screw, you can feel around it's hard to see, and then just yank the fucker out... may take some effort... once it's out, throw it on the ground, or you can pretend you're playing a tuba, because that's what it looks like... fenderliner back on, wheel back on... switch you stock air filter for a K&N and boom... pretty much the same thing as a cai for 39 dollars instead of 250;.

fairly good idea, but that helps direct that colder air into the engine bay.. i would just buy a cold air intake or make your own up. my injen cai actually replaces your tuba as well. keeps the cooler air in the engine bay. i cant stand how hot my ride gets.... all i got on now is a short ram part cause i cant get to the damn fender clips cause of my body kit ( i freaking hate that)!!!!

negative... it's very restrictive, and there's another tube that sits in the fender well also... if you unclip your airbox, remove the filter, and look you'll see what i mean... it's basically taking all the restrictions out of the airbox... same thing a cai would do without the bling

lol, im confused. ok.
1. take off all engine covers.
2. remove tubing from throttle to that box..
3. take off the box.
now all you should see is a black tube disapeering into the wheel well (the begining part to your tuba).
then take clips off, pull back the wheel well liner and theres the other part of the tuba... right???????

box that sits on the throttle body stays there... you leave the box that's in your car... the piece that you remove in the wheel well... i'll take some pics, make it easier... it's almost 2 am though, so i'll do it tomorrow... but to answer your questions, yes, there it is... can't miss it

Ok, so here's some pics i just snapped... it's late, and they're in my living room but i think you can get the idea... here goes...

this first pic is what the resonator looks like... i put a ps2 game there just for a size comparison...



this one is the view that you will have when you take back the fenderline... the foam piece to the top right would connect to the bottom side of your airbox



removal is simple... there's a clip here:



and one here:



here's a better view of the botom clip:



and here's one last one of it chillin on the floor:



this will improve your throttle response, and make your car much louder compared to stock... the noise is not noticed when driving normal... you will notice it most at wot around 4k rpm... any questions, hit me up... add a K&N filter, same performance as a cai

Those pics even though they aren't actually IN the car seem explanitory enough. And make it even easier to understand... Preciate it
