    Hi, I have a 2003 elantra GT. I decided to remove the intake that
    connects the air filter box to the resonator box. It was an easy mod.
    I feel that it increased power a little and it makes a louder sound.
    The filter box is open to the side of the battery and seems to be
    isolated form the engine. However, it does not get air directly form
    outside. It seemed that removing the resonator box and leaving the
    intake in would be a better mod. The resonator is located by the wheel
    well, and by removing the resonator, the intake would pick up air from
    outside. However, removing the resonator is kind of complicated.
    First, there is a screw that I cannot get to unless I remove a bunch
    of stuff. Second, the resonator box has a hose attached that loops
    around and ends up next to the engine and I have to loosen up a clamp
    which is also hard to reach.

    My questions are: should I try to get the resonator box out, or shall
    I stick to the current, easy mod. Will removing the resonator make a
    big difference in getting colder air or is the filter box getting
    enough cool air? Also, why does the resonator have a hose connecting
    to it that loops up towards the engine? I could also try to attach a
    tube to the filter box that will end up at the wheel well. However,
    because of limited space it will be slightly narrower. Would this

    Thanks for the answers
