Still Going

This mod is still alive.

I installed mine a week ago and the sound difference from 3000 upwards in great. Lovely growl. Performance improvement is noticeable too. I used a K&N 3" filter with an additional rubber coupling i got from the plumbing section. Everything fits perfectly. Pics below.

Got check engine light but the battery disconnect fixed that.

One problem I think ive noticed: Whenever I get above or around 100 mph I smell something... almost like an exhaust but Im not sure. Any ideas?

I Finally did the blue paint to match the filter and added a piece to connect the hose for the breather to to get rid of that little filter. I had to move my battery back a little cause the intake was too long. here are some pics

Smog pass or fail?

Does anyone know if having this mod can fail the Smog Test in California? My Smog is coming up and I'm wondering if I need to purchase a DC Sports SRI on Ebay for $142 (which is the cheapest and only one I think that is available for R18) or I can just keep the mod. Since the stock box cover is all destroyed. Not unless someone had a link to where I can purchase a stock air box cover that would be helpful. Thank you in advanced for answering. :wavey:

Ain't a damn way you'll pass visual inspection. The OP has the part number for a new cover I believe, but I'm not exactly sure what the engine bay will look like with that cover over this. Try it out!

Could someone please clarify one thing for me? It says 2.5" filter in the OP, but it looks like OP used the 3" side of the coupler on the filter. Is it a 2.5" filter or a3"
