i guess this would go here, as its going to give more sound then performance
i did it today, only problem was trying to get the plastic sleeve out.

She sounds great now, at about 2000Rpms, you just get this nice wooshing sound

spool-up time is a little bit quicker also

Glad to see it worked out well enought for ya. It can be a bitch.

I'll put this is performance since it seemed to help the spool.

Cause you need a shiny new intake :)

Oh, and I'm not sure if I ever welcomed you - so welcome to the Link. Glad you found your way here :)

yea you should do the t5 intake mod if you want some noise and dont wanna spend any money. Of you can just gimme a few bucks for my stock t5 intake box :)

Awesome free mod, and im sure that baffle hindered a bit of air flow.

Only the NG900's and 99 9-3 S/SE (unless you got a late model 99 9-3 SE which then recieved the viggen intercooler and different plumbing). Rule of thumb is if you have t5 then you probably have the silencer.

the ng's and the non HOT og 9-3s have the double sided ic and the metal tube that contains the silencer is between the ic and turbo...hope that is a good explanation
