getting my motor back in my rxpx, what is this FA mod for the intake manifold?
been reading alot lately and stumbled across a few threads where members have mentioned doing it. cant seem to find anything in the FAQ section or by searching how to do the FA mod in my 09 rxpx ,. ski is apart and would like to do all my mods before i finish assembling it ?

Most people report seeing 50-100 rpm increase after pulling the FA out.

i saw nothing and felt nothing doing that mod with the stock charger. Going with a bigger charger might be a different story.

It is somewhat of a pain in the ass to do but if the IM is already out might as well. I used a long handled screw driver, sharpened on the end, to hammer down through the mesh. Then a long handled pair of needle nose pliers to pull it out through the throttle body hole. Bought the screw driver and pliers from Harbour Freight for about $20.

its a b!tch to get out, but its not helping anything being in there...

Just make sure to cut the inside lip off. it says not to use a blade but we did. Then we just pushed it out from the throttle body side.... Not to bad.
