I know someone posted pics of this, but I can't find the post. Anyone else know where it is? Gutting it means taking out the internals of it, in other words, the resonator in your airbox can be taken out.

You can also gut the second piece of the airbox, the one that the filter sits in. There is a similar piece to be removed there. I also cut the end of that second piece off, to get more airflow.
