    So I have my 2003 XE with just the 2.4 and 5 speed 2wd. I decided to do a little improvement on the inflow/outflow situation. Some will think why? Well because I wanted too, because I can, and because it is mine. So there that is.

    So I built my own cold air intake system. It cost me about $34. I then improved the outflow side of things. So I have a guy that does great exhaust work. So I had Dynomax turbo muffler installed and larger diameter exhaust pipe. So I just got done doing a road trip out to the Oregon coast and back. I can honestly say it runs very, very well at highway speed. I even was going up the I-5 passes in fifth and maintaining or even some speed pickup. The exhaust sounds perfect. It is not loud, not fart canny. It has a nice low growl. But overall very happy with the outcome.

    The original air filter still in stock location over TB. There was no pre air filter on old setup, just plastic resonator box with inlet from the smaller hole forward of my current intake. So I removed all that cut off runner by radiator where its 2.5" round, the intake is 3" sched 80 pvc, coupled with 2.5" x 3.5" coupler from amazon. Then just wrapped with titanium heat wrap also from amazon.
