Default Silencers?

I know about the (white)silencer that is in the top of the air box, but I have heard people refer to there being more than one silencer. Is that true and where is it located?

There are three but the one you have identified is the easiest to remove. There is one in the snorkel from the airbox to the fender that either has to be removed and sawed off or the holes taped over with electrical or duct tape. The third one is in the turbo to airbox tube and the only way to remove it is to replace that tube. A search will give you a couple of choices of folks that supply replacement tubes without the restrictions.

Nice job BB. I did something similar but different.

Heres a copy of part of a post I did on another site:

1st remove the interior white snorkel tube. If you are willing to work at it, you can cut it down; reglue it back together to get a smooth transition into the inlet hose to the TB.
Remove the white paper filter & replace with a K&N drop-in filter.
Now here's the part that really made the difference as far as the air box was. I removed the snorkel tube that goes to the fender. Then I went to Home Depot & bought an assortment of 3” plastic drainpipe elbows & couplers. I cut a hole in the bottom section of the air box. To fit the elbow. Then on a chop saw (hack saw will work fine) I cut the 45-degree elbow to fit where the old inlet tube would fit.
I then cut the coupler in half. I epoxied one of the half’s to the outside of the section of tube that would fit outside the box & glued the other “ring” to the tube on the inside. This held the elbow perfectly.
I sanded the edges for a smooth transition & made sure that the tube & box did not hit the fender & cause a rattle. I further added a piece of foam to around the hole of the fender opening to the new inlet pipe. This insured that none of the heat of the engine compartment was getting in. Now I had a TRUE COLD AIR INTAKE!

You can insulate the air box with aluminized bubble wrap (insulation). This will help in reducing the air temp also.
