That was prolly lil ol' me Dan Remote Intake

While I did build it with better filtering in mind (dusty/mucky off-road use) it did actually serve to help quiet the engine noticeably - at WOT in particular. Intake silencers are actually fairly common on 2 stroke ultralight engines, more common than ya might think even on 2 stroke dirtbikes, ATVs, snowmobiles, etc. as the airbox is often designed as a silencer as well.

Granted - an airbox alone wont turn yer screamin' 2smoker into a stealth mobile, but it's the cumulative effect of all the above mods that gets ya there
