Default Stock TB Port/Resonator delete

Ok, so I got bored today and decided to check out my Throttle body. When I took it off there was a lot of oil residue, so I cleaned it off with some gas and a rag. Then I decided to do my version of porting , I also took my resonator box off. I went to home depot and got a extended 90* elbow because my Volant CAI does not come with a resonator delete, Yes I know that's tacky; but for $3.49 . These two little mods got me a lot better throttle response and some extra horsies .... I still have to put the final polish on the TB but I didn't have the proper Dremel adapter. If you have any questions, just shoot me a line. Attached are a few pics of my masterpiece
