i'm looking to customize my intake into CAI by removing the airbox and replacing with a straight pipe.
as the picture shows my stock parts... there's a hose coming out of the pipe/airbox and into the engine block. i was told by a friend, and have seen one in his car, that i can attach an itty bitty filter to the engine and it'll do its function just as fine
(sorry if i'm using incorrect vocabulary, i'm not exactly a car enthusiast and barely began working on my camry)
1. what is that itty bitty filter thing called?
2. anybody have any experience with it? i'd like your opinions please
