uhh.. took out the tube connecting resonator to fender, but even with both bolts out and all the wiggling I could do, that resonator would not disconnect from that other pipe. In the icebox DIY it looks like he dremeled them apart or something... These can actually com apart easy? or am I doing it wrong?

get a CAI and tune it peeps. if not, then this simple task of removing some restriction will be your best bet.
IMO.
explain the "if not more" part?

well the SRI is position about a foot from the headers... theres only heat to be sucked. SRI or not.

ok so...i tested the temperature of my intake and filter after running my car pretty hard.
after installing the flex pipe its been a lot cooler. most of the time even safe enuogh to touch intake pipe without feeling pain even in south carolina weather.

I made 200whp on a stock ecu with a DIY. I'm a believer. I thought you were saying they both get as much heat soak, so I curious as to how that happens when you're drawing in air from the same location as a CAI.

Are you saying you made approx 20whp from just an intake?

it is possible my friend.
proven and shown.
cheack out The Un-Official Cobb AccessPORT users community | AccessTUNERS.
Mucter made a 224whp CAI MAP, BV1 made a 223whpSRI MAP both fellow beta testers. these are both with race headers. but 200 has been broken with just intake+tune already.

DIY intake, custom shorty header, custom test pipe, Mugen Si stock exhaust. ECU reset about 200 miles before the dyno. A turbo focus put down 220whp the same day @ 8psi.

Stock Si's make between 175 and 181whp on this dyno.

The resonator comes off the hook-shaped pipe right below the battery. Try twisting the resonator clockwise as far as you can, then work it out. If you're talking about the taking the oval shaped piece that runs through the frame off the box part of the resonator, you will have to cut it. The resonator box is just a shell; there's a solid pipe running through it.

you have to disconnect the piping in the bumper that connects to the bottom of the box in the pic

Will there be any noticable benifits with removing the resonator in an R18 engine?

just a better intake sound, not a lot of noticable performance gains from the butt dyno

So it might not gove me any horsepower gains, but it will give me better sound, andd it would be drawing in air from the wheel well instead of the engine bay thus-less heat soaking in the summer. Correct?

That's the theory, but stock it pulls from right behind the headlight which isn't really too bad.

If nothing else, you'll notice a little improvement in throttle response since there's a lot less piping in the way.

i removed the rubber connector located under the the filter heatshield. (diy on page 8)
now i noticed a little bit of a gas smell in the car, which went away in about 2-3 minutes.

i would assume this mod doesn't hurt the car cause i monitored the engine heat guage, which never went pased the half way mark, exactly where it should be...more or less. I mean i was surprised its like 20 degrees here in jersey.

anybody have any input as to why we should no keep the rubber piece connecting the two pipes. ???

is this mod better then getting a SRI? its a free mod and it seems like the stock intake will be getting cold air, so i would assume it is correct?

how about this mod + apexi ws2 vs a SRI + apexi ws2? do you think there would be a difference from getting a real sri or doing this DIY?

This is more so a Sound mod then anything else. I mean you can always make your own SRI but cutting up your stock box. its pretty easy to do.
