hmm, have you tried wiring the aux ports open? The stock airbox is pretty restrictive... although if you have your cat(s) and stock manifold you might not get anything significant from eliminating it. BTW, twist ties do the trick for wiring open the aux ports, just remove

the actuators first (2 10mm nuts each):

Aren't the 6 ports are airpump actuated on a series 5? I'd leave those and the VDI alone.
