I was looking at other SVT foci's on cardomain.com and i saw this guys car and he showed how he removed that worthless P.O.S side snorkle on the intake box he showed how to remove it and how it improves the trottle response.....its not major....but IT MAKES IT SOUND GREAT! from 3-7 rpm its much deeper tone than stock. here the link it should work... http://www.cardomain.com/member_pages/view_page.pl?page_id=236203&page=5

Been there, done that. It makes absolutely no noticeable change in performance. Yes it makes the intake louder but that's about it. In fact UltegraSTI claimed a long time ago that it's actually dyno-proven to LOSE horsepower, probably not much but why give up any of the little power we have?

waste of time, if you want the sound buy an intake and actually gain performace [thumbd]
I wouldnt call its a waste of time, its free and it takes not even 5 minutes to do it, and it definately makes for a much beefier sound.

Try sucking air through a coffee stirrer...then try it through a soda straw...notice a difference? Same concept...it helps...minimally...but it helps.

Seems like the guys at SVT would put that little snorkel there for a reason.

They did. It was to silence the intake noise. Guess they thought we wanted a quiet car [???:)]
