Exclamation Took out old air box and put new filter

Did not hook back the crank case vent hose to filter or hose to intake plenum. What affects could possible happen from this.

Some guys put a small air filter right where the vent hose comes out.

Is that one of those filters ofer on ebay? well it should sound nicer, may be a small gain on power, but not like a real CAI, You should be getting more air, but with that intake, the flow may be a lil restricted.

Stock airbox is pretty well engineered. I'd be surprised if you do actually get more airflow this way. It always amazes me what people will do just to be different.

Oh, and the effect will be blowby all over your engine compartment, possible vacuum leak, and the appearance of a half assed installation which others may view as indicative of your automotive prowess.

I don't know if it will help much with HP gain because you will pull more hot air... Put the box back in.
