If it has wires going to it, its the MAF sensor, or just left overs from the 5 liter if its not hooked up to anything. Hope this helps. But I could be wrong too.
X2 there is a tapered down cone in there you can saw off to improve the air flow.it is an air silencer, like the ones inside the fender of a 5.0. It does have a restriction in it that can be removed.
Thanks, I guess that means while I've got the factory efi system I'm stuck with itThe heater hose size hose on the bottom goes to the idle air control valve - you cannot remove or eliminate that hose - your engine will not idle. Hope this helps.
Are you absolutely sure, Scott???In a completely stock engine the silencers removal actually hurts torque.
As you upgrade cam, compression, exhaust, larger throttle body etc its removal is necessary.
Yes I am sure.Are you absolutely sure, Scott???
Ain't gonna help anything, might make the tubes resonate a little resulting in a "meaner" sounding intake pulsation.
