I'm about to purchase the Injen CAI and going to keep it as the short ram instead because of climate reasons of where I live.

The question is, is it really necessary to take out the resonator box if i'm only going to keep it as the short ram option?

There really is no point in converting the OEM hot air intake to an aftermarket hot air intake.

A free flowing cold air intake is the goal. Short of driving thru a lake, an aftermarket cold air intake mounted in the fenderwell will not cause problems.

Removing the OEM air resonator is so simple there is no reason to keep that 5 lbs of useless plastic.

My recommendation is to actually just modify the OEM air box to a cold air intake for zero dollars.
Toss in a K & N filter into the OEM box if you want.
The CT air box is nicer but only worth it if you find one cheap.
