Correct the CarbonFilter. If you decide to remove the carbon filter I do recommend resetting the ecu(removal of neg battery terminal for 20 mins). I saw really crappy gas mileage when I first removed the carbon filter. I decided to do an ecu reset and my mileage improved and stayed consistent.When you refer to the stock intake net, are you referring to the part of the air filter that is separate from the air filter itself? I believe it's a carbon filter?
