Robertrafal Wanted to give my experience on this upgrade...

I did the snorkel delete and found that there was a louder sound and it felt smoother. This was done in the summer time. Once winter hit I noticed that it wasn't all that great and I had issues of noticing that while engaging from stop to first gear it wasn't as smooth. I don't know how the seasons would make any difference but when I put the snorkel back on the car felt smoother. I have no other mods. I doubt there are any hp gains from this upgrade other than added noise.

Also this is not a hard upgrade job to do. It took me 10-15min to put the snorkel back on and all I had used to do the job was 1 flat head screw driver and a flash light. I was by myself and it was night time.

I personally prefer the less noise when I give the gas after having the snorkel off for 6 months.

The ERMM(what I put in my car) makes a world of difference in terms of response. The slop of the original RMM is replaced with a balanced connection to the frame. So you will be quicker because the engine torque is able to transfer to the wheels quicker. Not necessarily by a bunch but it is noticeable.

The drop in filter with the ERMM and snorkel delete are still the best $100/bang for the buck you can spend on this car.

thomasd3800 When I took out my snorkel I already had a aftermarket filter but, I felt a instant difference after 3,000 Rpms it pulls way harder and consistent until redline. Before snorkel delete there was more delay and it didn't feel like it pulled as hard.

Nevermind the sound, do you feel anything different? I noticed a difference almost right away after I pulled mine out and it never went back in

Yep that's what I've got.
Only think I don't like is that the plug for the end if you ever want to close it up doesn't work too good. The little tabs can break off.

Open end filter is a good
compromise if you want a little noise.
