Now there is a difference, but it is much more subdued that running without a lid. Meaning it is louder than the complete stock airbox. I'll also confirm it does seal to the hood, Can see the contact point on the hood liner.

I still give the RS airbox a thumbs up.
How are you liking your AEM Dryflow? I'm looking at getting one to replace my old K&N, and now it looks like I'll be buying an RS filter box too. :D

IIRC I have had it for about 2 years already with the snorkel delete. Filter has been fine, cleaned it once so far.

Glad to hear! Did you notice any increase in gas mileage when you switched to the Dryflow? I've seen a lot of people posting up that they saw around 1-2 mpg increase. I do primarily highway driving, so I'll take any improvements I can get. :)

Has anyone dyno'd the RS air box with a highflow air filter yet? I'm just curious if it offers similar gains as the $300.00 Steeda intake. If so, this could be the best money per horsepower mod to date! :D For around $100.00 you'd be gaining around 10whp and 10fpt. Not too shabby!

I've already done the snorkel and E-2993 K&N filter which gave better response and improved low end revs drivability.
Contacted my parts shop about the RS box, here's hoping I can get one :D

No one has done the rs air box but the stock air box with high flow filter made 8whp I the dyno. You'd think the rs air box was at least as good.

Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. :) I definitely plan on getting the RS air box in the near future.

Has anyone ever found out if the snorkel delete actually adds any horsepower, or is it more of a sound mod?

Sorry if this is really old stuff. I've been away from the forums for a few years. It's good to be back, though. :)

You do need to do the snorkel delete in order to get the horsepower increase.

Roger that. That's definitely good to know. :) I STILL haven't done the snorkel delete, so I'm looking forward to seeing a little boost. My new AEM Dryflow will be here tomorrow, so I'm going to try and do everything then if I have time.

So, being that the RS box fits the MK3, would the Mountune RS air box also fit? If so, has anyone done this yet and did they see any noticeable gains?
