    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    Which generation do you have? On the old ones, you remove the black metal tube and the box it is attached to by unbolting it from underneath the black box, right above the exhaust manifold. Then it'll come loose. Not sure about the new ones though.

    sorry guess i should have mentioned that. i have an 07. i know the picture sucks. the center silver thing in the pic is the throttle body i assume. to the left of it is the entire intake air filter and all. i have loosened the ring but does not seem to budge.

    Hmmm... well, if it were me, I'd go to the parts store and get a shop manual. Otherwise, its a crap shoot. That looks totally different from the previous gen.
