I just removed one of the foam inserts and I cant stop grinning. What a growl!!! Nice and mellow during normal driving, but completely wicked WFO :thumbup:

Me before delete: :)

Simplest, quickest, impactful mod you can make

Thanks for the instructions in this forum as to how to modify the effect of the sound generator. I've owned the car since new, and am kicking myself for not doing this sooner.

I have a Jan '04 build 3.0i. All I had to do was reach into where the tube enters the firewall, pull it out, carefully, but with some force, bend it back and up, pull out the foam piece then put it back into place. No screws, jubilee clips or bolts to undo.

The tube is actually accordioned on a curve, so you can flex the tube back and up without kinking it.

I have an AFE Cold Air Intake, so between that and the foam delete, the sound is intoxicating - as several others have pointed out.
