havent seen much. I wasnt planning to do much. I did remove the intake resonator and will probably get a K&N drop in filter for my car.

this is the part number 33-2179

any gains from removing the resonator(or just mental)??? what about sound?? cabin sound?

its barely louder but the sounds when the motor gets up in the revs sounds a lot better. I am keeping the stock muffler because its a luxury car right? ;)


maybe a 1 - 1 1/2 hp gain haha

How did you take off the resonator? is the resonator that restrictive, because i was planning to take it off as well

to take off the resonator you have to take off the front bumper, then there should be a big grey resonator on the passenger side. If i remember correctly there should be 3 screws, it should b fairly easy. You should be able to get more cold air from the area behind the fog lights after the resonators been removed.

Will this let more dirt into the engine?

An air filter is the motors defense to dirt getting in the intake charge. A resonator muffles sound and has nothing to do with letting dirt in the motor, although in its design, it can only allow warm air in, or cold air in, and can keep water from getting into the motor. Nonetheless, its primary job is to reduce noise, not filter air.

how about fitting the KA7 intakes w/ the TCS. or universal Remus w/ hi-flow cats?? or if your crazy like that, custom CAI but you might have to remove the fog lights. i know its a luxury car, but hey.....

Tein basics for the TSX will fit the latest (as in my 2004 3.5RL) of the RLs? I have seen this mentioned but have yet to find someone who has actually done this.
