Default Intake/filter upgrade

Ok guys...I'm starting to catch the mod bug. So far, I'm keeping my pulley stock, but I've already dropped to the 180* stat and am looking at going with a cone filter intake. I did a search on some guys who did this mod but the pics were no longer available. I was also under the impression that the PCM was located inside the stock airbox. I'm not looking to change that at this time. If I'm biting of more than I can chew, that'* cool. But I would like to get a lil more air into the engine. Until gas drops some, I'm going to try and keep the fuel suckin' mods to a minimum. Thanks in advance!

On a side note...would replacing the PCV valve do anything for an idle that drops below the 650 range at stoplights just briefly before returning to normal? Probably a retarded question, but hey...gotta start somewhere!

actually a Good FWI or a gutted air box can actually help your gas milage....i see that you want to keep the Stock Airbox....you want to cut the baffels out of it to make the box one large area

I also agree the FWI is superior on the 00+ because of the design of the fender, and the shielding that it provides

I helped an 00+ member remove some excess plastic inside the airbox and drop in a K&N...it also worked out well. However...the bug is too close behind you to bother wasting time with that stock airbox.

Want to borrow my pulley puller? lol

I have an old laptop that I'm going to try and sell on Ebay. I plan on using that $$ to buy an Intense FWI. Question: would replacing the stock box with a FWI void any warranties? If it does, I will wait until my extended warranty expires to install.
