Default Air box differences

Hey all quick question. Is there a difference between the 2000 SSEi airbox and the 2000 SE airbox? I went to gut my airbox this weekend and i didnt see anything that resembled a baffle. Maybe im missing something?

Not really.

The baffle in yours is more of a wall with the hole in the center section.

That'* all I did for a few folks. Seems to help slightly because it opens up more filter to be used.

Sounds like you are starting a modding journey.

So, I went to gut my airbox, and even after searching this forum, and reading up all I could on this subject, I found that my airbox looked nothing like any others that I could find in this forum?!? Mine was a 3 part box, the first between the intake hose and the filter, the second (middle) section had a baffle on it that I completely cut out, and the third had a computer module screwed to the base of it, and a tube down into the fenderwell (I shortened this tube so that it now stubs into the open box!). I should have taken pics, but by the time I realized that I had something different, I was covered in black gasket gunk, and didn't want to finger up my camera. All this to say, it did make an improvement, (it needed it!) but what do I have? is it normal? What is the module that is housed in the airbox? Thanks in advance.......

The module in your airbox is the PCM.

Nobotad, we need to have an Indianpolis meet when we mod cars. I've got some cool things in the garage including a spare conical K&N filter.
