    Don't touch the tube on the inside of the lid at all let alone remove it. Doing this will reduce power if anything as the airflow will not be smooth especially when it passes through the MAF. On top of that it will increase fuel consumption. Just remove the plastic trumpet like piece from the bottom of the aibox as directed in the how2.

    Doesn't say anything about the tube on the lid. It is funnel shaped so that air is passed though the MAF and into the engine as smooth as possible.

    Only talks about the bottom plastic bit not the one on the lid of the airbox.

    Someone removed it apparently and the tube on the lid, and it played havoc with performance.

    The K&N has a shallower depth and relieves the pressure drop in the air box alongside the removal of the plastic bit. Doing these mods doesn't actually allow more air into the engine. It reduces the pressure needed to draw in the same quanitity of air, hence some ponies are sent to the flywheel and subsequently to the road wheels to pull the car better.
