Just pull the black box

out ( the one with the clips ) install the heat shield then just screw on the cone like i did , drive around for a couple of hours disconect you battery over night so the computer can learn the new filter

Mason68 I don't have the same engine as you, so I dont' have that black box above my engine where yours is. I believe my resonator box is below my filter box, will have to investigate. Thanks for the replies though.

danthegolfer ok hold on...

i think the "resonator box" that he is referring to is the air filter box...

heres hwo the intake works, air goes into the inlet tube and thru that first box, the air filter is inside it... then it goes out the other end of the airbox and through a rubber bendy tube into the resonator box, which sits ontop of the throttle body. then the air goes into the throttle body and then into the engine....

if you were to get a cone filter, you would need to take that whole airbox off, but also get some new piping so your filter isnt pulling in hot engine air...

on my below picture, the green arrow is the air filter box, the red arrow is the air resonator box

on the other picture, that is how you would set up the cone filter intake

but, also go to this thread b/c this is the best intake setup of them all

abdukted1456 I forgot to tell you. you have it right but where does it go? one side draws air from the wheel well the other side goes up to the airbox.

Mason68 Ok, thanks man.

06-17-2005 10:16 AM
abdukted1456 you got it chief.

Resonator box

I've searched on this topic, and I found some answeres, but I still didn't get a clear understanding of how the resonator works. So there's a tube that runs from near the wheel well. This tube runs into the resonator box, then another tube comes out, and goes where? If I'm getting a cone for my intake, I can simply take out the whole box altogether, right?
