No it is not the wrong thing and is definitely now part of the front end facshia.
it now has 5 torx bolts and two push pins. pull the hood cable out of its' holder and you get about 2 inches of lift out of it.

I just held it up with a roll of duct tape.

I was able to get a small screwdriver and pull out the top of two pins, the third pin I used brute force with a long cabinet flat head and popped it out.
Use a little force and pull the snorkel out.

Reassemble, start car and rejoice in your mastery.

If a guy can do it so can I.

Yes definitely part of front end. I could see the bumper flexing as I pulled on the shroud. I just pulled the shroud back, had a buddy hold it, and did my best to get those pins out holding the snorkel. I had to rip it out at the end, I couldn't get the last pin pulled

2015 Shroud

Thanks for the info.

But it would be hard pressed to get enough "lift" out to get a hand mush less a tool to pop the pins.

I only could lift this thing about two inches.

Yes, it's been mentioned before that intake mods will be very much handicapped unless you also do the snorkel delete so I'm definitely thinking that there is an actual difference and not just placebo effect... I'm glad you found this thread and got the snorkel removed, I wonder how many people mod their intake and don't know about removing the snorkel and don't think intakes help much with our cars.

Dropped in my AEM, pulled my pins, removed 4 bolts and found the damn "shroud" is part of the front end. WTF
