Hello,

Can you please help me identify the GT sound tube from the plethora of tubes and pipes under the bonnet? I'm guessing it's the one I've marked in the picture. Am I right?
If not, then can someone please mark the correct one?

Yep, that's it. Looks like it to me at least.

I unplugged mine and capped it at the intake. I couldn’t reach the other end On my ‘18 GT.

Yeah, and ALL that business past the diaphragm, under the brace is all part of it too.

On the end you can't see, it's basically a plastic flange, connected to the firewall with one nut. If you remove the front half, then just pull the back half up (pass it under the brace) with a bit of force, it will just snap off at the single connection point.

I mean, you can wrestle with the nut too, but I didn't care about breaking it (or returning it to stock).

Just to elaborate on this, if you want to get to that nut you need to remove the drivers side fender liner. Then there is a cut out where you can access the bolt. If not, most of us just pull on it and it will pop loose leaving the nut on the stud.

@Vlad Soare - if you are removing your sound tube and you have a vernier calliper, please could I trouble you for two dimensions prior to you plugging up the hole up in the intake elbow ?

Cheers,

WD :like:

Thanks, guys. Right now I'm not sure whether I want to remove it or not. First I'd just like to see how it is without it. I was thinking of disconnecting the tube from the intake and plugging both holes. I guess that means here, right?

If I find that I prefer the sound without the tube, then I will eventually remove it. But I want to test it first, to make sure I won't end up regretting and putting it back. :giggle:

With the right tool, and some patience, I was able to remove it without pulling out the fender liner. I just removed the front half of the sound tube to get it out of the way, ran my hand down the tube as a guide to feel for the nut and used the ratcheting flex head combo wrench.

You must have amazing hands. Couldn’t get mine in there.

My wife says "You have no idea." I told her that might not come across quite the way she intended.

Seriously though, I could get my hand in there just enough to get my finger on the end as a guide to make sure the wrench was on, wiggle it just right to get it secured, then loosen it a bit before it would slip off. Rinse and repeat.
