It was stated earlier that the 13 does not have a snorkel bit I'm pretty sure I'm looking at it now. Is it ghetto to take it off.

The snorkel goes into the fenderwell and not to the front of the car. Please don't tell me you took off the front piece.

The 13' has a silencer in the front bumper which can be removed and will not trigger a CEL. Should def give you a lil more sound from the turbo. Some say its not a noticeable change though. Haven't done it myself though...

I guess I was confused on the difference between a silencer and snorkel. The piece I was looking at goes to the front not the fender. I haven't removed it, was kinda just curious.

The silencer/snorkel goes into the fender well. The front piece is just the intake scoop.
