    my buddy took off his stock air intake so its just the air filter housing. He said it will give him more horsepower and since hes sucking in hotter air from the ingine it will make the muffler louder. Is this true or what?

    umm bogus and bogus... Cooler air = more HP, so the hot air idea is only going to hurt him. It may SOUND like the muffler is louder, but its not. In reality the fact that there is less intake tubing means there is less sound deadening underhood so you will hear more of the intake side of the engine. So yes it will get louder, but it won't be the exhaust. The stock single tubed air filter going tot he core support is not the best intake setup, but just sucking in under hood hot air isn't any better.

    Aight, i think he gets the point, no, no extra horsepower, and the extra loud noise is the intake noise, i have done the same thing with open air elements...

    As mentioned, hot air is baaaad,,,cool air is goooood:p: :D

    Without the bullsh!t. Hot air is less dense than cool air so this equals less air into the cylinder= less power.

    No need to cover the guy in mean spirited replies!

    what?thats so unlike me to be nice!!!??? WTF

    Yep, not to beat a dead horse. But with my experience from the porsche forums, some 944 owners remove the tubing from their airbox to the front nose panel because it makes the car louder...needless to say it also hurts the performance. I think on the 350 if you removed the filter cover you also risk having foreign objects inhaled by the motor...bugs etc. Defeats the purpose of using a filter.

    If it's sound you want put a K&N type filter kit on... Or just buy the filter and make your own tubing, the less tube and the straighter the routing the more noise you'll hear. And try to locate the filter in an area where it'll be able to suck cooler air.

    he's on the right track, i usually run a long tube from the filter that hangs just below the axle when i go muddin. the water turns to steam when it enters the cylinders and makes big powpowpower.
