Saw that our cars have little silencers in the air intake. Has anybody removed these from their car? Any noticeable change in noise/power? Thinking about removing them on my car since it seems like it should be a pretty quick thing to do but I can't seem to find them.

There was an attachment in an old thread that supposedly had a picture of where they were, but it looks like that attachment is dead and I can't find any other information about these silencers besides what's in that thread.

Hi Tragik. Removing the silencers will not increase engine power/output.

Good luck.

The other post(s) on the forums have the answers to your questions. Several people have removed them, you can hear the turbos a little more, it does not increase power, and in some cases it can actually increase the turbo spool time / lag a little bit.
