I made my 70 mile round trip commute today in heavy rain and had no issues. The car felt like it had better response especially when I had to gun it to merge onto the interstate. I also noticed I was getting better gas mileage. I now have snorkel delete, new mission mod, and a drop in K&N. All I need now is a better exhaust.

Not sure why the piece I took out looks different but it could be because I have a 3/11 build date.

Here are some more photos.

You do know that you just removed a crucial part of the cooling system right?...just saying your radiator now has terrible airflow.

Now, removing the snorkel on the airbox and the air horn is a GREAT mod..that is what I have done

I don't think this mod is really going to have a negative effect on the radiators air flow as it gets most of its air from the bottom.

^^^This. And it is literally in front of the car getting forced through the air.

I'm sure that the snorkel design is probably due to nvh/fit and finish.

Sent from my stupid phone.

Well, I put the lid back on and did the snorkel delete. Still need to take out the flap, but just going for a drive I notice a difference in the lower rpms. Much better than just lid off. Filling up tomorrow and am gonna run a tank to see mpg gains without cutting the flap.

Just ripped the snorkel out and my butt dyno feels like a picked something up in the mid range. However the audible change might have played into it as well.

Yay! I did the snorkel delete! I took out the 2 pieces, they came out somewhat easily. Tight space but its doable.

I can definitely say I noticed a difference now when sitting idle. It does not vibrate now and acceleration feels solid. Good mod to do! Took me about 10 minutes! woo hoo!
