Default well just gutted the air box

idk if anyone has ever tired to do it on a buick before, but you destroy everything. the box is nice and open, but the resrictive parts are um in the dumpster in little pieces.
dont try it without a cutting wheel.
tried for about 30 mins to save it and just ended up cutting for 5 and im done.

sounds a lil louder from the engine compartment. not something i wanted. maybe ill just put it back in. lol

That extra noise you are hearing at start up is normal for about 30 seconds, then theres also the noise at or around WOT... But how could someone not like that noise

Once the car warms up, it should sound fairly normal. Until you romp on it, then you can hearing the most awesome sucking noise (based on my NA experience anyway).

But, I can understand not wanting the extra noise. Stealth mode is great.
