I have read about some people capping off their resonator on the 2.2 so the air goes straight to the engine.....as if it helps. what if you took off the resonator and put a small filter in place of it? sounds ghetto but not as ghetto as pvc. would this make a difference, or don't bother trying

well, i will start by saying that i am by no means an engine specialist, but since im studying for aerospace engineering, i know my air. Air, like electricity, will take the less restrictive path. If you did put an air filter there, it would be logical to say that majority of your air would now come from there........... assuming that there is the same cross-sectional area where the air filter and neck connect. To me, it seems like there would be no hp increase due to the fact that the air you pull in would be closer to the engine block, and it would therefor be hotter. I wouldnt waiste my money.

One step ahead of ya':burnout: ..tried it on my bro's truck and lost some performance..in the same temps..the truck went from a 19.2 w/ conical filter inplace of the airbox and surrounded by some sheet aluminum as a heat shield and then we stuffed a cone onto the end of the stock intake resonator..lost a lot of low-end power...he switched to the K&N FIPK and ran a 18.8 afterwards..good enough proof for me.
