Default Gutted Air Box Post

Is there a detailed post with pics on gutting an air box for the series 2 NA? I've done a search but can't seem to find a detailed one with pics.

Who wants to turn this into a Techinfo article? First person to answer YES (and has personally done this) gets it. PM your submission with pics (those posted previously will work) to any Gearhead.

I don't think so.. Because then you are restricting the air filtration to only that 4 inches of space.

Get the K&N.. You'll notice more of a difference. Then.......Open up the space in your radiator support and use weatherstrip to seal it off from the engine bay. It'll put a big ole on your face.

BTW..fuel mileage is in your past. Forget the letters MPG... keep thinking WHINE and PULL.

Foot = Whine + Pull and in our equaution... Whine + Pull can not ever equal MPG

Welcome to the darkside.
Or maybe Boost could do the write up. He'* not busy is he??

Which airbox? 93 or 95? The 93 doesn't need it.

Use the 93'* airbox on the 95 with the 95'* 'accordian' tube. No gutting necessary.

Trust a 93/95 dual owner.

PERFECT solution for someone as lazy as I am!
One more good part from the parts car too.
Awesome, Will.
Thanks!

BTW, is the filter the same?
