K&N installed.jpg


1 - Remove the rubber holding the box (#1) + the resonator together. ( At this point you're already done. But you can improve the sound still *a lot*)
+ Yaddah .. You're sucking some hot air. (I dont care as a daily driver for work.. i'm not racing in town!)
+ Let that resonator in place.. it still brings some fresh air right in front of your air box entry. Wonderful. (hot air almost fixed!)

*So... to improve that sound.. *
2 - Open the air box (#2)
3 - Remove the factory air filter (#3)
4 - Install a K&N air filter (#4) or any aftermarket one that has a better airflow CFM.

Just using an aftermarket airflow in a closed airbox is pretty useless (sound wise).. but with the airbox opened like that... I noticed a huge difference in the sound using that K&N air filter. (REALLY close of a cone)

That "mod" is so easy.. kinda useless to describe and all but i know some ppl needs a lot of info to just open a can of pepsi!

Did it worth the 50$ on that K&N ? Yes.

Keep in mind its all about having the best sound for free or cheap. I recommend that K&N with that setup. If anyone want a sound clip i can tomorrow after work.

Nice setup. K&N made my Si a tiny bit louder, but opening the piping to the air box like that makes it an SRI. Good for noisy. Check out resonator removal to get some of the sound and stock cold air piping.

Yeah but that ~2 mins mods is perfect for me atm for what i want/need. And probably not going to change it in the future. And next week i'll install that DC Sports muffler i ordered. Gonna be all sound wise.
