I apologize for not taking pics, the battery in my digital camera was dead. I will try to find time to open it up and take pics at some point. But it is really simple to do this, and there are detailed pics of the airbox in the previous thread. Once you remove the top half of the airbox, ití* all pretty obvious. But here is a step by step guide:
1) loosen the hose clamp where the airbox connects to the MAF.
2) There is a small hose (approximately 2Ē in diameter) that connects to the airbox. It just slides off.
3) Remove the air filter cover by loosening the 2 wing screws, tilting it up, and then pull it toward the fender to release the 2 tabs at the back.
4) This exposes the air filter, but the top half of the airbox is still in place. Loosen the 3 (or 4?) Phillips screws holding it in place, then gently lift the top half of the airbox off. Like the air filter cover, it has tabs that hold it in place on one side, so pull it toward the fender as you remove it to release the tabs.
5) At this point you are staring at the tube that connects the 2 halves of the airbox. Just lift up on both ends and it should easily slip right out, along with part of the wall that separates the 2 halves of the airbox.
6) Optional: With the tube removed, there is a ľĒ hole in the bottom of the airbox where the tab holding the tube snapped out. OCD compelled me to seal it with a dab of RTV. Can you imagine all the hot engine air that ľĒ hole could let in?
7) Now the tube is gone, but youíll see that on either side of where the tube was the remainder of the wall is still in place. I removed the side of the wall closest to the fender. Ití* pretty tight in there. I alternated between a 3Ē cutting wheel on a drill and a dremel cutting wheel on my die grinder. But hey, ití* plastic, so ití* still a piece of cake!
I did not yet bother with the other side of the wall because a) the PCM is still mostly blocking that side even if that part of the wall was gone, and b) air coming from that side of the box is going to have to make a hard turn when it gets to the airbox outlet. And finally c) the size of the original opening through the tube has been increased by a factor of something like 3 or 4, so ití* no longer a bottleneck.
