Question Where is the air intake silencer?

I KNOW IT SAYS IN THE TECH ARTICLES. I just can't find it, does anyone have a pic of it so I could possibly decide whether or not I should remove it?

I have dual flowmasters on my car, so would it improve the rumble I get or make it sound like a 4 banger?

Please let me know!

I notice no sound difference since I yanked mine.
Although I still have stock exhaust...

removing the intake silencer doesnt make the exhaust sound any different... mainly just the air going into the intake at higher rpms is louder...

I took the intake silencer off on my '94 3.8. The intake whistles like hell now, even at high idle. I think it sounds kinda cool. The engine always had a quasi-blower sound, anyway... woo...

i have removed the resonators from my 93 3.8L and my 97 4.6L, the only time i hear anything from them is when im under the hood and i rev the car up...all i hear is a sucking noise from the cone filters...

It is a large box thing that is inside the fender. the 3 bolts that hold the airbox to the fender hold the silencer too. I had to pull the passeger side wheel splash shield and the bumper cover loose to get it out. Makes quite a bit of difference without it in my opinoin.
