Only difference at start up is it is loud!! like a suction sound echoing in the fender lol..after it has been running for 30 seconds that goes away and idle sounds normal..I will see what I can do.

I will try to get a video of when I am driving it since I have some videos when I first got the car to compare it to and post them.

A 3" intake is ridiculous when it first starts up. I love it though

wouldnt hurt...can't say it will allow me to do anything, but It would give me an idea if I could even think about it that is for sure!

Without airbox would be helpful too!

Alrighty. This weekend sometime I'll take out the air box and headlight and take a video or a photo shoot. I might bring out a measuring tape just for some rough measurements too.

x2. I get that response from my girlfriend with my poor man'* FWI (K&N filter in a gutted and opened-up airbox). She assumed it was the high mileage, though; the starter issues when we first started dating didn't help that impression.
