Hey guys, I heard about people removing the second filter from inside the intake box, so I decided to make a quick video on how to remove it.

Please join my Facebook group called "SoCal Scion iM" where I will be posting more videos as I continue to mod my iM.

Enjoy!

My neighbor interrupts me in the middle of the removal but its all there. Thanks!

I don't think it's replaceable, but I'm not sure. However, I'm on a lease too and I'm honestly not worried about it. I doubt they'll notice, and if they do, I'll just say it was really dirty and I thought it was replaceable.

I will be performing this tomorrow and I'll be dropping in a K&N high flow filter along with it. Excited to see what kind of difference is made in sound and throttle response....I have the 6 speed manual.

Does it affect air filtration negatively once it's gone? Or is the main filter enough?
I personally wouldn't worry about anything negative from getting rid of the second filter. The regular air filter alone is plenty. I wouldn't be surprised if they added they second filter for restriction alone.

For the most part that one filter is good enough for weeding out the bad stuff. I think you can get some air filter oil to make it work even better but i noticed that being a dying practice.
