Default 2011 G.V. 4-cyl Intake Mod Q's

I was curious as to if you are able to do a DIY intake change out "K&N / Cone filter and or piping add-ons" without easily throwing CEL's
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated

What are you hoping to achieve?

Doesn't it already have a cold air intake?

I am looking to "Achieve"
1: More air flow than the factory box will allow.
2: Better throttle response.
3: Better MPG.

Thanks

i have the 2ltr with pod filter mounted to the intake. i removed the standard airbox and ducting. pretty easy...only reason why i did it was because car was in an accident and airbox was smashed and was cheaper then getting a new box, i think if you go off road alot or dusty roads the stock setup is best with a snorkle...

in regards to your airbox, its been engineered to allow the right amount of air, etc, etc, a high flow filter (K&N) will help, especially if you keep it clean, off-road/dusty conditions, a snorkel will help immensly

better throttle repsonse and MPG, if you drive a diesel like I do, a Varra tuning chip will give you both, I was amazed with mine (only got it a week ago)

i removed the rear muffler and have the pod filter and fuel trims arnt far off zero in closed loop so it doesnt really make that much difference to the stock mapping ecu can adjust enough to suit. never drove the car stock so cant say if the throttle response or fuel econ is better or not. being na you wont get a major difference, just have to rev the ring out of it to get any power and just accept its a 4x4....or put a turbo on like im about to do

you could remove the second cat which might give it a bit more power but then prob not 100% legal

Thanks Orange for the info, do you have any pics. If so please post them. Also did you receive a *CEL= check engine light after the air box \ filter replacement?

maybe have a pics in my turbo thread search my profile threads. no reason you would get a check light maf just reads airflow and the difference won't be much so will still be within adjustment range which is proven by the fuel trims not being much off zero. to do it I had to grind all the plastic away and just leave the part where the airflow meter is then you can slip a 2.5inch filters over I made a steel adaptor and glued it to the pipe with a mount to the body so its solid then filter clamps to that. you have to destroy the airbox to do it. or another option is buying a weld on maf bung and making new piping out of alloy that's what I'm doing for my turbo conversion
