you can remove that big box, you'll have to take the bumper off to get it out tho, or you can just leave it there, it doesn't do anything once you've disconnected the stock intake

remove the black box and the tubing that is attached to it. There are like 2 clips that hold the box in place.

insert new SRI and re-plug O2 sensor etc. and voila!

It's to drown out noise. If you listen closely you should be able to hear a slight whistle. This whistle will be louder with a short ram on there.
