I did the same. My experience was identical.

04ZTSJelf I didn't even have to use something to prop up the cover over the snorkel. Just position yourself right and it's easy.

That sounds awesome. Now I'll have to pop the hood and take a look around!

danbfree Yes there will be a little more sound with the snorkel out, but not too much, but that's why it's there in the first place, so grandma's wouldn't complain about the noise, no matter how minor it is.... it doesn't hurt to keep the stock filter in place but you won't see any real gains until you do, the best budget way to go is the AEM Dry Flow for $39... it's not only cheap but can be cleaned and reused without adding oil.

Would is be ok to leave the stock filter in until it's replaced if the snorkel is deleted?

Is there a sounds difference?

Ti/12 I put in an AEM filter and then did the snorkel delete. Throttle response and general drive-ability are greatly improved!! Last I attached the ST Snorkel that goes to the lowest horizontal grill opening (just above the big black plastic square). The reason that I installed this ST Snorkel, is to get as much cool air to the stock air box as possible. I was able to check the stock air box temp in real time and it runs at the outside temp while the car's in motion. The air box temp rises in stop and go driving but is still cooler than the under the hood temp.

Turt99 I couldn't find anything specifically about the snorkel delete. But there is definitely k&n filter replacement. How-to videos on YouTube.

Not that I know of, but it really is quite simple. Grab a flathead screw driver; pop out the pins on the cowl; pull it back as far as you can; prop it up with your choice of object (shoe box, wine bottle, lumber, a friend...), pop the pins on the snorkel, pull it out; replace pins on cowl.

Of course you need to replace your stock paper filter with a high flow filter too but that's also quite simple.
