Just replaced my filter, deleted the charcoal, and did this mod.
The most painful part was getting everything to line up. Nothing lines up perfectly, but just be persistent and it will work out.
I'm not noticing any noise changes right now, but I haven't ran my car in two months, so I didn't have much to go off of.

What's a Charcoal Filter? Are you talking about removing the cabin air filter up by the window?

I would first like to thank you for the DIY it defiantly gave my motor a meaner growl than before and for 30$ can't beat that, but to say that it's a pain in the ass is un understatement. This project was frustrating as hell. I'm mainly worried right now how it's going to hold in the long run but so far it sits in really tight.

I didn't know you did this mod. How is it after 3 years?

OP how about you, anything significant to update this thread?

I wonder if you could use a heat gun on those couplers to make them easier to install.
