Default Resonator query

Would disconnecting the air intake resonator result in any improvement in performance.

Not sure about performance but definitely more noise.

The effects of a speciality filter (like K&N conical one) itself are un noticable in the absence of a cold intake ... I dont think removing the resonator will increase performance. Although the intake sound would be a little roaring which is gives a false sense of HP improvement.

once performance filters are installed why not remove the resonator and install piping for cold air intake?
i think it is the cheap and best way to feed cold air to filter. let me try this...

Was thinking of doing something along the same lines. Disconnected the resonator. Car sounds good . Am using the stock airbox with K&N panel filter. Planin' to connect the now free pipe(the one which used to go to the resonator). to a CAI as in gigy's pic.

This is really cool setup for the cold intake..can I do the same on my palio. It would be great If I can feed some cool air towards my k&N

Done it already:-)
Its not gonna make a big difference as a CAI,..im planning to relocate my air filter to the place where the resonator was.That should be more significant.

relocating filter to the resonator area i thought about but lookig at the wheel well area i dont think filter is safe from the elements of nature, water and mud sprays. besides it is very difficult to clean the filter regularly. i clean it every month or 1000kms. try heat insulating the air duct till throttle body and installing a partition for filter using heat shield.

since u have a pannel filter wouldn it be better to open either part of the box. The box a zen is placed in a place where air will enter through the bonnet. at present the inlet pipe is placed there.So just open the box and keep it. will post pics later
