Question Genuine Saab Open Air Intake T7

i was looking into getting the GS Open Air Intake for my 2000 93se but for the installation they don't say anything about what to do with the other air box(below the main one). K&N says to remove it but GS says nothing. So i dont know What to do. Any Advice?

What "other" air box as there is only one? If you mean the silencer and all the crap connected to the stock box then rip it out. If this is for sound then go for it, if not then keep stock box and spend money on something else.

I have never seen that "how to", but have to admit it's pretty damn good. Resonator, silencer, same thing, rip it out.

Not to mention, most of these kits have you pulling hot air from the engine compartment instead of cool air from outside - you can design something better yourself.

Consider the effects of an oil based filter on your MAF and possible piston damage before making the change. At the least, clean your MAF regularly if you go with an oil based filter.

Also, unless you're going up over 300HP it likely won't make any difference.

I'm not saying to do it, or not, but consider those things before making the purchase and switch.

Yep, but you might be able to bend it back some and try to rip it out.
