Nothing, either do a carbon delete/K&N drop in or get a BMW perfromace exhaust. The AFE sound is awesome and I don't think a closed intake can duplicate it. Just get a BMW performance exhaust and you wont give a shit about the engine note, the exhaust note will be music to your ears.

I put that thing in

so damn long ago!
Shouldn't be hard to swap back, should it?
Trying to remember what it was like to put it in- I remember I had some sort of issue with the screws on the sensor.
I may swap it out and see.
Problem is, too, that I drive the car, well..... never..... so it's hard to make comparisons.
2006 with 12,000 miles- that pic is last year (Fall) with the 12k.
Oh, yeah...... I hate you guys.
Couldn't you just have said "Yeah, the AFE adds like 50 whp"

is the carbon delete similar to charcoal filter removal or are they 2 different things?
