I'll throw a hose clamp on it and try it without the lid that way.

I'm amazed at how great these little 2.0's sound. I mean both the intake noise and exhaust.

The bottom lid has small metel flippy pieces that help hold the filter in place. At least on mine it does.

Agreed. These are the best sounding 2.0's I have ever heard.

On a side note, I found a way to run an open lid with possible benifits; although not very practical for daily driving, and not 100% "safe."

If you close the hood until the safety latch locks (not all the way closed), you have an opening to get direct cold air to the opened lid filter. Also by doing this, it leaves a gap at the back of the hood (which is normally sealed)- that may create a "cowl induction" effect by sucking the hot air out from under the hood.

Again, not very practical, but it should be a good way to avoid heat soak.

EDIT: probably not legal, and done at your own risk lol

Yeah that's risky. lol

Also, cowl induction hoods suck air in at the back.
So the air coming in the front might fight against that. Not sure.

Sorry I haven't been as active lately fellas. Work has been killing me.

Just a quick update for those that are curious; I've ordered a replacement intake resonator. I've also ordered an airbox lid to modify for intake noise.

Ahaha, there was a video that came out last week of someone with a brand new civic and the hood wasn't latched closed while filming.
They had to get a new windshield

If you guys want a nice mod, simply remove the airbox resonator and replace the lower airbox piece by this part number: CV6Z-9A612-A
It's basically the same lower airbox piece but without the hole.

This is the first I've seen this recommendation. I see this is used on several applications, including the ST. Is this a direct swap for the Mk3? Does it fit the mount points and cold air feed tubes in the Focus exactly, or are modifications required? Is seems like it should since it has a Focus application, but I just want to clarify.

It's the same exact part except without the bottom hole for the resonator.
