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?

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 :D

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 :up:

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
