FInally Did the Airbox Mod

Airbox mod done! Took me about 1 1/2 hours but it should have been quicker. It was pretty easy going through the wheel well. Now the next mod will be the intake but it won't be until at least I find a job.

Now take the box out and saw the crap out of the bottom of it to really let the air flow in :D

I was going to just save up and get an injen, but this would both give me something to do and save me some cash as far the immediate future goes. I can always get an injen in 2 weeks when im paid again I suppose.

I haven't really driven it since I took the airbox out. I drive it around the block yesterday just to make sure it still ran :-). I will be driving on the freeway later today so I will see if it feels any different. My car is still under warranty but I could always put it back in if it's a problem.

It won't void the warranty...I've had mine in for warranty work on a few things since I've owned it a couple years ago...I even have the intake and muffler on it. As long as it isn't internal and they are just bolt-on parts those kinds of things won't void warranties unless it it deemed that the bolt-on part you installed caused the issue your in there for warranty work. Such as...going in for a diagnostics with a catless downpipe...they won't touch it. Or...if you drive through a pond and hydrolock your engine from your intake having no air filter on it...see what I mean? Just common sense crap.

Wow! I just did it and it is an awesome sound! I don't know if it gives me any more horsepower or better gas mileage but it sounds better.
