I have a question? If I was to run an intake or an open box with green filter before I purchase an intake do I need to remove the symposer in order to hear the spool/blow off sound?
You could try it with the stock airbox lid off and if you like it buy an RS airbox lid just to make it look nicer.
I ran mine with a cobb filter (made by green filter) lid off for a few weeks and had no issues other than confusing the neighborhood kids.

Gotcha.
Only thing the symposer does is let sounds in the cabin. Kinda pointless honestly and will cause issues down the road.

Gotcha. Was confused because video I watched on YouTube said it muffles outside intake and turbo noise. With an open box green filter can you hear turbo spooling under normal driving let's say slowly bringing her to 3500 rpm?

Yes definitely. With the windows up you have to listen for it, but with windows down you can hear it start to whistle around 2k rpm depending on how much gas you're giving it.

The Cobb filter is made by Green filter, so honestly it is the same. I've got both and I use the cobb just for the color. Haha
