I was gettin really bored with the little sound coming out of my intake so this morning i decided, hey why not try debaffling since a lot of other ppl have done it!

Took me about 10 minutes and WOAH! I was stunned at how much of a difference one little baffle made! My car is a lot louder (not amazingly loud like with an intake) and I felt a much quicker response time!

I took some pics to make sure i DID take out the baffle and not something else by mistake lol.

debaffling is one of those things that doesnt really help but makes u think it does , the baffle is made to reduce noise but also helps make a smooth transistion for the air so less disturbance is there. It can help and hurt depends on ure point of view
