Who'da thunk such a simple mod could make such a big difference in the sound? First video is stock, second one is without the cover. Both were shot with the same potato.

Holy shit it sounds... almost like... not a cheap-ass commuter car!

I wish I could show you guys what it sounds like at high RPM (the god of thunder clearing his throat) but the rev limiter is set to 4k unless the car is in gear :(

Unfortunately, removing the airbox cover creates a "hot air intake" that hurts power output a bit. I think I'll finish my current tank of gas like this and then put the cover back on.
