Your mod list says you have an intake adaptor ???? Why would you have an air box ??? If you have absolutely no cash and want a little extra you can drill large holes in the underside of the air box , this just alows more air to be sucked in when needed ... Probaly good for 1 HP or so ...

unwanted reply...

i know you needed no more replies, but ive done this on many cars, and its good for hp, a little more than one though, also, you can safely remove the intake muffler, makes a nicer sound and i also gained a little noticeable difference in low end and upper range.

intake muffler

underneath the intake box is another black wierd shaped box with one hose to it, thats the muffler, it has only two bolts attaching it. take em off, plug the hole, and VOILA! no more intake muffler. this is a trick the Z guys have been using for years. have fun! Jay

If you're going to make a ghetto WAI, you may as well do this....

From http://www.bikemag.com/gear/bikes/021206_schwinn
Commuting isn’t sexy. In fact, I don’t think commuting even qualifies as cool in most people’s book. Which is kind of odd when you consider just how much dedication is required to slog your ass to work day in and out—dodging errant SUVs and potholes, only to arrive at the office slathered in a thick mucous-y slop. That, in my book, is pretty damn hardcore..
