foxhound720 I'm looking to buy a stock airbox to hack up. I want to keep mine in tact just in case.

Portable a/c inlet is a great idea haha. I was staring at the spare one at work thinking how can I use that. I should paint it black. I noticed more growl on my snorkel delete only down low right off idle.

It should growl at full throttle but I'm barely there.

After adding an aftermarket air intake, my mpg actually stayed the same, which is shouldnt because im driving the car a lot harder...the removal of the restriction must be helping more then hurting.

It's a 3d printed one based on the st snorkel file that is kicking around on the internet. I think I would have done the Portable air conditioner inlet hack that is popular on American muscle cars forums since I printed mine 5 times to get it right: Exhaust Duct 5304447489 Order now for same day shipping. 365 day return policy. May be larger than the printed version though, not sure. Looks like the duct from above would need a bunch of modification though.

Had to chop out lots of cosmetic stuff, but I was able to keep the shroud and active grille shutters untouched. Like it was made to go there.

Snorkel Delete

I haven't had time to do any logs or anything yet. I've been way too busy. Haven't had time to play with my own car, much less, my wifes'.

Mrlandy My Snorkel Delete- Snorkel add has helped lots. Volo chip was the final thing I needed to have this car drive like it is supposed to. Has acceleration from takeoff instead of 3rd gear like from factory. Chalupa how did the 1.0 air box mod go? Since I have completely closed air box, I'd like to swap out those tiny dual intake tubes on stock air box. Can you post how yours is doing after install and where you got the 1.0/ fit/ etc?

I don't hear any engine noise with the closed system, only the whoosh of pulling in air when windows are down. Kind of cool sounding.

Reilly I haven't noticed any change in MPG or even noise (maybe slightly growlier but certainly not objectionable) from before the SD/AEM filter mods...The low speed drivability improvement is very noticeable and pleasing to me.

foxhound720 Nevermind I got it on. Just running snorkel delete now. I noticed that my stock mpg isn't as advertised and I've been driving like a grandma lately.
