It's a Samsung Infuse, same as the other crappy phone, but for some reason this one wants to insert everything I've already typed every time I make a correction. I edited my post, but Mason caught it in his quote.

I believe my results are fairly typical but I figured I'd share them none the less.

I current have the 'snorkel' pulled off the airbox but nothing cut. I have also removed the resonator at the bottom of the box and left it open. I made both of these modifications prior to changing the air filter. I immediately noticed a slight decrease in mpg (34mpg to 32mpg) and I noticed the car seemed to hesitate/bog more off idle, between shifts and during moderate acceleration.

I finally got around to picking up the K&N drop in filter. Immediately, I haven't noticed any increase in power (by the butt dyno) and I have not put enough miles on it to comment on fuel economy.

I have however witnessed a very noticeable change in the driveability of the car. The bog off idle, between shifts and moderate acceleration is completely gone and the car is driving smooth as silk. I would say it's much smoother than the car was before I made any modification to the airbox.

IMO these changes alone make the $50 investment worth while.

I have to ask, but when you say the snorkel off the airbox, you aren't talking about the intake runners, are you? The two tubes that go from the airbox up to the radiator support (with the rubber strap that goes over the end) should remain in place. Those are the intake runners, and if they are removed then your engine would be consuming hot under-hood air. Hot air leads to bogging.

Just asking to make sure.

No I'm talking about the perforated tube behind the grille. The two tubes physically leading into the airbox are still intact.

Good lookin out though.

No problem, just trying to help people get what they can without blowing all their income

Did you leave the resonator hole open or did you block it off? While I'm sure that it would be negligible, I would block it off in order to keep engine heat out. If you have it open now, I would run it for about 3 tanks before doing it to see if there is a discernable difference.

I did this the other day. I removed the snorkel and removed the black rectangle with the flaps attached. I also noticed the bog is pretty much gone in my 5/mt. I have the K&N drop in filter too. I'm very happy and this was really easy to do.

It will be difficult to tell this time of year as winter is approaching; they are changing the fuel blends and we let our cars sit longer idling to warm up.
