i used an open end wrench (10mm). There should be no knuckle buster spots (then again, I have small hands....)

it might be different because you have the 6sp. but which way did you go in from? through the tire hole? or the hood? or under the front bumper?

i removed the tire, and then moved the plastic underfender crap out of the way.

Ding!! just thought of something. 03 had extra steps on the instruction manual I read.

^^ it appears that for 03, the battery needs to be removed to get a bolt, etc. I have an 05, so things were much easier for me

yea it was worth it. i just hope i don't have to put it back in cause i think that would be impossible unless i took off the bumper. my mileage has gone down though...probably because i'm usually above 3000+ rpms now to hear it

i'm going to check my filter next week to see if there is any increased dirtyness on it.

i removed mine two weeks ago.. definitely worth it

if you feel like it, you can yank out this 6" long piece of tubing out from your resonator and reattach it to your intake. theres a 2.5" ID rubber coupling that will hold it in place, hope you didnt throw it away yet. although reattaching this piece will somewhat quiet the noise that was obtained from removing the resonator and all the piping, this little piece should serve to draw air from a source that is further away from the engine bay, and closer to a large pocket of space from inside the bumper. and, as we all know, colder air means more power. pics of the piece below (note: probably only applicable to L4)




side note: plastic apple for size comparison ;D

Did anyone notice a high pitched humming coming from the tubing after they removed the resonator?? It got kind of annoying for me so I'm just gonna save up for an intake

I spent over an hour looking for the DIY like there was for the 6th gen and i couldnt find one..i found bits and pieces of some but not one from start to finish....I mean I know I can handle the removal...but if i can do it in 20 mins rather than an hour that be great!

hmm i kinda wish i took pictures while doing it but i didn't. it did take me a while because some of the pieces had to be wiggled out and some screws were hard for me to reach

too lazy to relook the link, but go to knfilter.com do the application by car look up. get the product info on the CAI. Click instructions. It'll show how to remove resonator and install intake (but you only want the first half anyways.)

i wanna say frist off that, even though it may not be necessary, i recommend removing the bumper for the resonator removal. i guarantee you it will make your life easier, though it may you a little longer. but also, it may save u some time if u remove it off the bat.

the resonator removal is just for sound. some have said that it will actually REDUCE the torque available at lower rpms, but i have FELT exactly the opposite. who knows. whatever, its free, right?
