^ This. If anything, the snorkel delete really won't do anything for any for the aftermarket systems as they are all open elements. While it definitely won't hurt them, the majority of the air ingested well come from immediately surrounding the filter as opposed to flowing through the tract.

I was going to go through the whole thread but it sounds like the first thread is the most important.

How hard is the process? Does anyone have a video?
You don't need an aftermarket intake to see the gains just an aftermarket hi flow air filter.

The process is super easy. Open up the hood of your ride and take a look. Just remove a couple pop up clips holding the black shroud down to get access to where the snorkel is located and then remove the 2 pop up clips that hold the snorkel on. Probably a 15min job.

The snorkel is actually there to suppress sound and it restricts the airflow into the air box so removing it has some performance gains and improved sound. Doing just the snorkel delete without a drop-in apparently does nothing but improve sound though. So to get the increased HP you need a drop-in filter.

The mod only removes an end for the intake tube that's a bit restrictive, making it more like the stock ST setup. Cold air ducting remains.

Snorkel Delete Functional?

I apologize in advance in case this question has been answered previously but is the "snorkel delete" a functional mod?

I know a lot of people do it and I thought the point of the snorkel was to redirect air to the filter. I could be wrong but if you remove the direct flow into the filter, doesn't that just blow air all over inside the engine bay and not directly where it should go?

I know you guys will provide great answers because I've learned so much from this forum so far.

focusdaily Finally did the snorkel delete and I seem to be getting better MPG. Between the snorkel delete, an AEM filter and the e-rmm drivability has really improved.

No way on earth is the stealth drone comparable to race drone..I'll admit sometimes my stealth exhaust will be a bit loud but that is only when I am in sport mode with the dct because it is driving at higher rpms, but all I do is put it back in drive when I want the noise level to go down and it does. The name fits because when I want to I can make everyone within the block or so hear me, but I can also make the car rather quiet when I need to. Its really nice actually I love it. But I do wish I had a double tip rather than a single tip..

I will say Mike's sound just as good as the stealth though, I don't know his price. I wish I had his option when I was shopping a year ago.

Does the newmission do a whole lot...? From what I saw it was just a big rubber pipe going from under the intake box to the front of the grill? I no longer have my stock box, instead I have the steeda cai, has anyone done newmission to the steeda before? It's a metal box and I believe it has a hole in the bottom already.

My main question is what are the benefits to the newmission mod?

I know I'm a little behind the ball but I just read about that newmission mod and it looks awesome!
