2014 + impala intake resonator.

Hey everyone, I had purchased a 2014 impala about a month ago. And have been considering doing some things to it. " tune, intake, intake spacer, 80mm throttle body..." but seeing how I still have a gm warranty for another 80000 km I'm thinking about just doing the trifecta tune. I was acquainting myself with the car and looking at the engine bay. I found at the front bottom of the intake box there is an intake resonator placed there. I wiggled it a bit and it comes right off" it's held on with 2 clips." With it off it has a much nicer deep throaty sound 😆. With it off it leaves 2, 1 inch and a halfish holes right behind the passenger light. I suppose it's getting more air now too 🙂 just thought I would let yall know if you didn't already. A nice free mod that gives a great low v8ish burble when on the gas. And quiet as ever when not 🙂 when I first tried the car i didn't notice a difference. But the next day when I drove it I noticed the difference right away.

Louder is not exactly my cup of tea but if it works for you then kudos. However, after a 2 minute google search and read it seems this will likely lead to a horsepower loss. Here is a few links:
