Air cleaner mods

I removed the snout on the air cleaner and the cloth star shaped piece in the top. Now, can I remove the 2 round barrels next to the MAF? Here's a pic of what i'm talking about: http://img419.imageshack.us/my.php?image=img16779hq.jpg

Why are you doing this? Have you looked at the vfaq? What kind of mods and tuning fuel tuning do you have? can you take a pic of the "star cloth thing" (I hope you don't mean the filter)?

P.S. give it more than 2 hours before you bump, in fact you should never bump
I know what your talking about... The white cloth at the top of the intake that is closest to the intake pipe but in the filter canister. I wouldn't remove it. My buddy did that to his n/a dsm and it idled like sh*t. He showed it to me and it looks like it has a little wire hooked up to it...censor...but do what you got to do. If you mess it up, they have junkyards.
I think he is talking about the silencer. 1G ? Turbo?
The silencer would be the star thing he's talking about i assume. There on both turbo and N/A dsm's.
get a K&N and just do away with the canister all together.

No, you would then be dramatically increasing the amount of unmetered air going into your engine, which would be of no real benefit.
