So how did that air box mod go? Do you really care now about losing a few drops of gas? I think i know the answer to that...I've searched and read everything regarding the air box mod and I plan on doing the mod tomorrow, but before I do it I was wondering if fuel efficiency is at all effected by gutting the air box?
Also, can I have some final opinions on whether to follow the how-to completely and take everything out or if I should leave the tuba or any other parts in because I'd read mixed reviews on what should and shouldn't be taken out while doing the air box mod.
Technically, yes, you do lose gas (a SMALLLL amount) honestly who cares? . Its sounds deeper, louder than stock, you can argue it gives you a lil HP gain, (i dont think it does IMO) and it draws attention (which is probably why you did it in the first place)
for the person that wants to do this mod and not cough up the couple hundred for a quality CAI will probably become heavy footed and act like they actually have one. that accounts for 98% of the extra gas loss.
