I say yes, I had it done to my 2.4 and I have it done to my 3.4, it frees up direct airflow to the filter and is smog legal. You really only have to worry about additional debri and water getting in the filter box with it open.

Did it give you better gas mileage, more power, or a better sound?

No not really. More money for a fancy tube. You can do it if you like but make sure you get a box intake because any intake with a heat shield is not cold air.

Take your air box out cut a 4" hole in the front "The side that sits behind the head light" Take a 4" deck plate and apply some censer safe silicone and screw it in place.

It is a 1st gen mod. If you do it to a second gen you will make a hot air intake out of a perfectly good box.
