You're already drawing maximum air. You intake is not restricted. The engine will only suck as much air as it needs.

airbox mod, take out the silencer, then you can cut off your muffler. a total of $0.00 unless fined by cops.

The only thing that will get you fined is the lack of a muffler. The air box mod and silencer removal really do pretty much nothing.

Well some people think it actually makes a performance increase, which it does not. Some also think it makes the intake louder, which I never noticed.

replace your stock muffler with a glasspack if you want loud and its not fairly expensive like 20 bucks or so for the muffler and depending on how you want to mount the new one , when i put in a new muffler i just got a muffler where the inner diameter equaled the outer diameter and basically beat it on there with a block of wood and a hammer then put a turndown on it

you can do what i did you can un bolt you exhaust at the resniator and pull it all out chop the exhaust at the resniator "clean" it out and build your own exhaust i did mine ove the weekend and i spent about $70 for the piping. i dont know what state your in but according to va state inspection laws i can run without a muffler and still pass inspection so thats what i did and my friends can hear me comin from about 1/4 mile away
