SVT Intake modification

Hey guys, jus a warnin, i'm a newb haha...neway I read in cardomain on a focus site *wish I had the address w/ me , sorry* that you can take the short air snorkle off of our intake, and tap it sealed....thus letting the long air intake run...This to me sounds like a really dumb idea, but hey it might work! Anybody know what i'm talkin about and how this modification would benefit nebody? Lemme know, thanks y'all peace

Yeah, seen it, tried it myself too. It will make your intake considerably louder (if you don't seal the opening), and some people report a slight increase in throttle response. But it doesn't really do anything in terms of more power. What you're removing is basically nothing more than an intake silencer, that's why it gets louder.

I've run my car with it both off and on and the only difference I could really detect was the level of noise from the intake (I did not seal the opening).
