Intake Silencer

I have asked a similar question before but only received one answer and am hoping maybe I can get some more. Out of sake for a pleasing sound, I took the silencer out and was running the stock filter without the box lid. I loved the sound until I learned about heat soak. I am now running an open ended Green Filter with the lid back on, but the silencer is still off and still loving the sound and the little whistle when I step on the throttle. If I put the silencer back in, will I no longer have a growl and no whistle noise? Thanks.

Nah just plug the hole with duct tape. Or better yet replace the whole thing with an RS airbox for about $65. (gets rid of the resonator as well)

Ok. So itíll fit exactly in the same place in my 2013 Ford Focus sport?
Also what do you think about taking the snorkel out for better air intake?

Make sure you take the snorkel out if you have a drop in filter.
