Air Silencer Removal

On a 97 v6 stang removing the air silencer is there a noticable difference when you hit the gas. Is it a smart idea to remove the air silencer.

no, you actually lose hp.

The throttle response improves, but a better way of doing that is getting a K&N drop-in filter.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

If I dropped in a k&n filter and removed the air silencer would I still lose hp.

yes, you get hot air backwash from the fan -and you lose any gain from having cold air.

Probably not as noticeable in cold weather.
