    Does anyone know how to get the sound tube out of the firewall. It is positioned terribly behind the drivers side head and an extreme pain in the ass to get to. If you look for it under the dash you can not see it. any advice will be greatly appreciated

    It should just pull out from the firewall in the engine bay. Do you have a plug for the hole it will leave?

    yea I have the plug and its already off of the intake. I have pulled as hard as possible and even used a trim tool on the fire wall it will not come out. I feel retarded but it is in such a bad spot its hard to even see it

    You do not need to pull hard unless you want to just break the tab off the tube, it is held in by a 10mm nut on a stud behind the drivers side head. it is a pain to get to but its not too bad.

    I used a 10mm swivel ratcheting wrench. Took some patience but the bay looks a lot better now.

    It's ugly looks make the engine bay better in it's absence. Also the sound tube is a really lame idea in most people's minds, artificial in nature.

    have fun getting that plug in the hole where the tube was. I had to get some one with skinny arms and small hands to do it...

    It looks so much better without that goofy looking sound tube in the way.

    Now the next task is to relocate the coolant reservoir to the left side and a CAI.

    Removed mine yesterday, not the easiest nut to get too. Why a 2" stud to hold a piece of plastic boggles my mind. Patience is key.

    Well, I attempted this today but I can not get to the nut. I put the ford racing strut bar and cowl on and it is blocking me even more so I gave up haha. Is there an easy way to get to it?
