    I removed the air breather box and removed the air filter. It appears there is another filter closer to the engine block. What is this filter? Can it be replaced?

    Welcome to TW!
    Leave it in there. There have been tests in which it was removed and showed no difference in performance. It is a charcoal filter, to capture fuel vapor when the engine is shut down. Removing It COULD void your emission warranty.

    Its a Charcoal filter...For emissions. Not a "Secondary Fiter" for air.
