Before I start breaking things...How do I customize the airbox to hear the BOV?
 
I've heard of people removing the "baffle" on the bottom of the airbox? I don't have the need or want to buy an intake, I'm just looking for a free/cheap mod to get the sound of the BOV. I want to see if there's something I can easily do for free before buying an aftermarket BOV.
Any tips on what to do is greatly appreciated! I know I can remove the airbox cover and make an at home induction kit but I have no tools for this.

you might want to save yourself the flaming and http://legacygt.com/forums/skynetim/misc/find.gif

it's not hard to do though

Yup. There's a thread on it. Easy to find and easy to do. You are looking to remove the resonator or silencer. Now do some searching

Take the air filter out

Take the silencer tube off the bottom and remove the fresh air tube from the front of the air box. This is about the best you'll get from the stock air box.

remove the intake, run an open inlet like the big boys at the track do

run intake into the cabin

or better yet connect the output of the bov into the cabin to blow in your face

Electronic supercharger should do the trick nicely!

I don't see this ending well

Just fuckkin search numbnuts. Here :

I take no responsibility for your actions, your mileage may vary, accept your own responsibility.

tools required: flat screwdriver, 3/8 drive ratchet,10mm socket, 8-9 inch socket extension , 10mm wrench (ratcheting is easier)

1. remove two popits from front of airbox scoop and lift scoop out of the way. loosen clamp on intake hose between airbox and intake, at the airbox. 2. remove MAF wire clip 3. open airbox 2 clips 4. wrestle the airbox half loose from the inlet hose, powersteering hose (on engine side of cover in clip)and remove airfilter. 5. loosen 2 10mm bolts from bottom of airbox on top of frame between airbox and cylinder head (Extension used here). 6. loosen 1 10mm nut from top outside corner or airbox (behind and above pass side headlamp) 7. using careful lift, turn, twist, lift type technique you will be rewarded with the front half of the airbox and the wiley Snorkus. 8. one more popit from the bottom of the airbox 9. twist the Snorkus roughly 90 degrees till the "nipples" are within the tube and pull it down 10. start back at number 7 and work backwards for reinstall of airbox. 11. enjoy the new sound of WWOOSSHHH!

Wait a minute...aren't you the author of this gem of a thread?

Slow your roll before you start bashing n00bs...n00b.

Worthless mod. Really Want Whoosh, buy an after market intake. Your stock BOV located on the other side of the engine does not vent to atmosphere so any sound you hear is coming from the airbox or intake, not the blow off valve.

If you aren't going to do it right, stay stock and stay happy.
