That's the diverter valve and it's a lil bit louder with an aftermarket intake >:D

If you want it louder... yes.

There are a few threads on here that discuss intakes and diverter valves- they are well worth reading all the way through. O0

I'm impressed....nicely done! I'll try and copy your attitude and play nice too.

Oh hell who am I kidding. >:D



Throw a blow off valve on your car......don't worry about the check engine light though...It's just for decoration.

nah no turbo. but i would never pay anything to tune a crappy altyma, unless i can put it in another car too!

hmm 10 more hp sounds good, but i want the noise maker too :p is it going to make the sound too?
