Would that actually make it sound different? I have no idea about much if anything about the mechanics of a car sadly. Well, the type of knowledge to do this kinda stuff anyways.

Do you feel any difference at all? I would do this just cause the price is real inexpensive. I know you aren't going to be gaining much, but did you feel anything at all? noise? power?

just so I'm clear .. you replaced the airbox w/ a K&N cone filter?


ie: https://www.scionlife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=193749 ... just with a "higher quality" filter right?

Just have more pics showing a lttle more detail on how to do it. The video I am have problems get the motor sound out of it so I need to make a better video of it, Yes it is higher quality but the way it fits you will not need a braket to hold it up that is why I put this up to help others when doing it.

Doesn't sound that different huh? I mean i never reved my xD with the hood open just like that, but i don't notice any noticeable difference? Maybe i shouldn't expect that anyways from just an intake. Thanks for the Vid though.

basically you're going to hear more throttle, which, for most, means its going to sound better. As it stands, the batting and the airbox itself act to reduce the sound. That odd handle of sorts does too. With all those in place, workign together, all we hear is whining.


What I wonder tho ... does it whistle like the tC intakes? ^.^
