Default Homemade SRI

Hi guys.

I'm currently trying to replace/upgrade my entire exhaust system, and I figure I'd start with the intake first. I've done some research and have decided to convert my intake to an SRI. I've already done a resonator delete, so all I've got is the factory nozzle going to the filter box. My idea is this:

Instead of replacing the entire nozzle, I could just cut it to size and leave it where it is. If necessary, I could cut off the two little tubes on the bottom of the main nozzle where air was re-routed through the resonator from the nozzle. (These may end up being on the piece cut off). After that, all I would need to do would be to attach a performance filter on the end of the nozzle and remove the stock filter from the filter box.

Would this work? My main reservation is in regards to the filter box- should I remove it? If I leave it on, will there be any problems?

eh my car is probably going to remain stock under the hood. The only mods I really want to do is suspension and wheels, but I don't have money for that so i don't know if i'll ever do it.

back on topic now lol

I like the way you think. always do Suspension first, hell i'm not going to even do exhaust until i have my suspension and wheels dialed in.

122HP iVTEC

The extra torque from the electric motor makes a huge difference though. I think my CR-Z would have beat my old del Sol in a race.
