On the 2009+ 3.0L's, there's a fat resonator on the front of the engine. If I find something to replace it (namely a cap), what do I expect to happen? Is there anything wrong with removing it?

Thanks.

If you remove it you will hear more noise from the intake side of the engine. I cannot type a word to replicate the sound you will hear.

I don't think you will benefit performance wise in any way if you remove it but, i could be mistaken.

I would think i would make more of a throaty sound. Not like a good sounding intake.

Someone already did the removal trick and was not impressed with the sound. I think it was over at BON, or Ford Forums...

That resonator is a good thing! :yes:
