So I finally got around to pulling out the intake resonator. Sounds good right around 2600RPM.

@havoc287 was the LOUD with the plug in or out?

i've seen other setups where the open end of the cone is plumbed with a flexible tube to where it would be sucking in cold air from the front.

You think that's loud? I agree that it's a big difference from stock, but the E-9289 is nowhere near as loud as a CAI such as K&N Typhoon, Steeda, FSWerks, etc. The E-9289 without the plug is still very civil compared to those, only really showing its presence at large throttle openings. With the plug in, it's as quiet as a stock filter.

I do have my resonator (silencer) still installed, so maybe that is making a difference...

The louder sound is with the plug removed. With the plug in, there's just the audible difference of not having the snorkel. I haven't gotten around to removing the resonator box.


For a 10-15 min mod, I'm totally fine with it not being as loud as some of the other options out there, I was just mentioning it for anyone who wants something quick and noticeable especially considering the filter is just an extra $15.

So actually got to have some road time in with the resonator out. Throttle response feels like normal, just a lot louder when around 2600RPM. This is with a stock filter and the top of the stock air box on. Makes you want to zip around more and keep RPMs up.

Snorkel Delete/Air Filter question

I recently did the snorkel delete on my 2012 hatch and used the K&N drop in filter, specifically the closed end filter. Has anyone used the closed end filter then switched to the open end filter and is there any performance difference when used with the snorkel delete?

your set up is the best. the closed end is said to make better power by others on here. i think the filter alone would've made a huge difference. you can also cut the flaps if you want more air, i did.

I have the open ended w/ plug and I get very different results depending if it is plugged. Open ended gives me a more jerky response from the throttle as rpms get around 2.5-3k, and the deep sound is nice. Closed gives me a smoother acceleration, and I feel like this is better for fuel mileage, cause my city mpg goes down a bit open ended. Haven't had enough time to test mpgs with the plug closed yet. Def worth $15 extra though, best of both worlds. Plugging the filter takes a whole 30 seconds, no tools.

The filter alone is a great filter on its own but I didn't notice a performance difference till I did the snorkel delete. And you know you know there is no need to cut the flaps right? you can remove that whole piece without cutting anything. There are two clips holding it in.

I figured that the open ended filter would produce better sound. I like the smoother acceleration really. I do a lot of city driving so I would like to keep my mpg the way it is.

When I had the snorkel delete and the K&N drop in, I just used a license plate to push down the flap and direct air to the inlet. Very smooth, could stay in gear (6th) on the highway when accelerating mildly. My MPG did go back up a little when I put the snorkel back on but could have been other factors.
