Service and electrical manuals cost so much now of days I'm sure it is as simple as putting a ground or 5 volts to a wire but the question is which of the thousands of wires they have now....

I just completed my snorkel delete today. Now I'll just monitor my MPG to see if there are any improvements.

I take back what I said about the noise; it is different and a bit more "throatier" than it was with the snorkel. This piece's primary purpose must be noise reduction as the ST doesn't have it. I notice the noise between 2-3k.

I just did mine two days ago. Same as you, lost one clip forever the the abyss of the giant FoFo grill, lol. I also cracked one hole on the snorkel, not intending on re-installing though. I don't even have a K&N drop-in yet, and still notice better throttle response off the bottom. It's more snappy and less lag. Once I get the K&N in there should be much better. I don't notice too much of a noise difference, unless I open her up then I can here the intake-like noise of her sucking in wind like a turbine. Quick and (somewhat) easy DIY mod that's super cheap and effective!

If you turn off TC it comes back on next time you start the car?

You can pull the fuse.
Consult your owners manual.

That would also tend to take out the ABS, as well as the torque vectoring systems if you removed the fuses.

I'm not sure if this question has been asked already? Can you do the snorkel delete with the K&N filter, and the new mission ram air mod? Is anybody running both, or do you have to choose one or the other.
