I don't know since Irfan gave up too quickly I would think he is the submissive one but you never know when in bed things do change

Re: Better "Performance" removing the air intake resinator or not?

LOL. I'll leave the "measuring contest" to Irfan and Joe, but to address the point of the thread, it depends on the design of the resonator.

For sure, it will make it louder....you will probably experience some gain up top. If it were my truck, I'd go ahead and do it. Certainly can't hurt.

I guess i'll try it and see what happens then. Its just going to be somewhat alot of work, because im anal and would want to paint the tubes all the same color and have it look good. So for my info, is the resinator basically acting as a storage box for the air when the motor needs it and sucks it in?

Uh, installing and painting a tube is not alot of work.

Your presumption is largely incorrect. The reso has chambers for the air to circulate in, in order to muffle the sound. Noise cancelling is why it is set up the way it is.

Lol, painting the tube is alot of work (time) for me. Im a "perfectionist" in that I know I will end up sanding everything down completely, tack cloth to remove every single bit of dust, apply the primer and paint in very small layers and let it dry to avoid runs and imperfections. Basically I am super anal and make a project out of the smallest thing. Like when I bought a set of used Stillen headlight covers, I sanded all the existing paint and primer off down to the bare plastic which took along time and very sore arms when done. So with this K&N tube it is very rough and i would want to sand it down using various grits of sand paper so its completely smooth, then take a day to prime, paint, and clear coat everything.

Thats why I asked about what the reso does, I have no idea what it looks like in there. It just looks like a box to me, so now i know there are chambers in there for sound deflection, kinda like a chambered exhaust muffler right? And the reso is purely for sound, nothing to do with performance except it may be restricting a nice even air flow to the TB?

It's not quite as complex as a chambered muffler but you get the idea now. It is mainly meant for noise canceling. Without taking a very close look at the reso box I can't say exactly how restrictive it is.
