    it doesn't seem that taking of the silencer will increase the hp by more then 5 to 10. but i do want to see change in the throttle response. taking it of looks like itll only take an hour or so to do tonight.

    the silencer is the only PITA, due to the bumper but it does come out

    You probably wont notice more power, but throttle response is better.

    I don't see any reason why it should void it.
    I mean your have less chance of sucking in water with it because the intact is no longer at the headlight.

    I don't think it would do anything because the silencer is down below the headlight but the cold air intake is above the engine. All it would really do for you is get rid of a tiny bit of weight.

    Hey, can someone make a video on how to do this? I tried but was unable to get the pin that's next to the engine out. I think seeing a video might help me do it.

    Well, I can't post a pic of it because its the one way back, almost under the engine and I can barely even reach it, much less take a picture of it.
