I was wanted to free up the air intake on my catera by removing all of the ducting from the airbox to the throttle body and replacing it with a smoother more simple design basically a tube coming from the air box into a box with two pipes going to the throttle body and reconecting the sensors. Now this is a very complex motor to me i am used to pushrod tech and well this motor makes my head spin sometimes so my question is:

Will this actully improve performance or is the stock intake best?

I also wanted to remove the resonators and replace with straight pipe not after the ricer sound though.

More air in + extra fuel + more air out = power :thumbsup:

I don't think there is much to be gained from the intake ducting. I would look more into the throttle body and electronics.

did you get the one with the K&n or the generic airfilter? you gotta remember that bolt on mods are only for the high-end of your rpm. im sure it wont damage your ride, but if you went with the aftermarket intake, might as well get the k&N cone filter
