Man, Ifinally got around to ripping out the dang silencer. I also bought the K&N filter( that bad boy was 50 bucks!) Cranked it right up and call me crazy, but you could actually tell the difference right when I pulled out of my driveway(only in America do you park in a driveway and drive in a parkway) and I was impressed. Thanks for the how to of how to do it. It didnt take long at all! But that dang thing is so bulky.It makes me wonder, why they ever put it in there!

Later,
TANK

cool...

I didnt notice a difference in power when i removed the silencer, but the K&N improved power a lil bit :)

Now, if you havent already done it, put an exhaust system on there and you'll really feel a difference :)

Already done the exhaust! I know this is a dumb question but now that I have removed the silencer, am I gonna have problems with a lot more dirt buildup on the air filter?

well its likely that more dirt is going to build up on your filter now that your air silencer is gone, but that dirt wont get into your engine. this may sound strange, but the more dirt that builds up on your filter, the better it performs. think about that. i have a k&n cone on the end of my maf and no silencer, and i did notice a difference in power and sound. the only thing i would be cautious of is hauling *** thru puddles. i would try to avoid them or drive slower thru them so you dont end up soaking your filter. hope this helps.

Hey Big Mike,
Thanks man!, I also have a K&N on my 1999 Dodge Ram and I have been wanting to toss one in the bird, but I waited until last night when I could get around to yanking the dang silencer out. thanks for the suggestion about the puddles, we have been getting our fair share of rain down here.
