Default GT airbox lid on a 3.7

Searched but couldn't find any info on this.

Has anyone ran this "mod" with a tune? How did it work out?

So, apparently you just swap out your stock airbox lid with one from a GT.

Thoughts? Just thinking about it, seems like it would make little difference. Just curious.

Increase MAF housing size. Bigger area = more air. Bigger diameter. Can tune your car to pull in more air.

I honestly don't know why I made this thread, LOL

Only CAI worth buying is the Steeda one IMO.

I have the Airaid MIT

I changed mine and also have the turkey baster for the rear axle.
BTW Jordan, I see your reasoning but if it did work you would need a tune and I don't think you could get that to slide through Smog.
