Ok guys, I just pulled my airbox and I have an active shutter ram air! I wasn't aware I had this and I've decided that this additional ram air has some merit but I'm not sure it's worth the investment or time. At first I was just digging into it to remove the resonator and realized how closed the active ram air system is already. If I would have removed the resonator it would definitely decrease performance and increase sound. So, I've decided to order some parts and put in this custom ram air system. I did this on two other cars with great success but neither of them had factory ram air already (96 mustang v6 & 00 Civic Si).
