    O, this maybe a tall order, but has anyone thought about removing the air filter and seeing if there is a power increase and supercharger whine... Sorry for my crazy ideas

    It's definitely going to change the sound of the intake. But I'd be leary to do it outside of the driveway or garage. Maybe being too cautious, but anything sucked up into that intake may cause a hairball...

    I had a discussion about that with the Viper Tech at my dealership wondering how long it might be before reports of birds and other critters sucked into the intake start coming in. That would be an expensive repair!

    Is the Green Air Filter washable? If so does, it need a oil spray to coat it after washing?

    I've mentioned it on other posts before. A good inspection of the air box beforehand would be advised. A cap or block over the intake with a big red streamer draped over the hood while storing it maybe a good idea as well.
    This car is going require more maintenance pre & prior to running it then your average grocery getter for sure...

    It does. I think they are debating how much power you would get without that restriction. Not a good idea in MHO.
