Intake resonator

Is there any advantage to removing the intake resonator? By removing this will it cause problems?

Just some added intake throat noise nonissue at all.

I couldn't say as my truck had a CAI installed when I purchased her in 2013.

The resonator is there to eliminate intake air pulses and harmonics that screw with the MAP sensor and MAF sensor, if you have one. There is zero advantage to removing it and there is a high probability it will have a negative effect. If it makes the intake noise quieter, it is simply just a byproduct and not the reason it is there.

That certainly dashes the dreams of many folk hoping to release big hp being surpressed by the hemi hat by letting the hemi breathe. I'll personal stick with the theory that a less restrictive intake works better....

Sucking all that hot air I’d imagine the stock intake would perform better.

I'll add my two cents... I have taken apart a Hemi hat I have found absolutely nothing inside of their to impede airflow it is actually a 5 in opening that flows air straight into the throttle body there is a zero advantage in removing it as far as I'm concerned. Use a good high flow air filter in the stock air box... it is the most cost-effective way get more air into the throttle body. I am not a big fan of opening the air filter to the engine compartment so it can suck all that hot air...

IMO, the resonator has to go... I like the Airaid setup that uses the stock airbox with drop in filter and it's own tube to the TB eliminating the hemi hat.

Exclamation

I've used the AFE High Breather CAI for years which does retain the Hemi Hat - don't even think this CAI is available anymore - the only thing I've noticed losing is the associated sucking sound noise - not trying to change anyone's mind - just relating 13 years of observation through use...

The resonator don’t seem too have much performance impact on the Hemi specifically, but some vehicles like my wife’s Subie WRX, removal causes brutal tuning problems.
