when you say "worth it" what do you mean? it doesn't sound like its all that hard to do. its below the filter so i wouldn't think it would hurt anything. does it really sound any different?

Yeah it sounds different....gives a sportier sound without being annoying....but as far as performance it does not really give any....makes you sound faster though

I "removed" mine.... it became permanent when I discovered I had broken it beyond repair.

No power boost to speak of. Just a lot more noise, particularly in cold weather. I'm not sure I'd call it "sporty" either. It sounded sportier in my opinion before I took it off. Now it just sounds like my mom's old Chevette.

well i did it and it does sound better, makes me wonder what in intake sounds like. no change in performance though as far as i noticed. and yeah i broke the two clips on the top, probably b/c its fricken cold outside but i guess that's why we have epoxyies and such to repair things like that if need be. it does help the sound though, basically what i expected for free.

chevette? mine's not that loud, only when you get on it and you can't even hear a diff until about 3500 to 4000 rpms.
