I guess it is possible, but it would only make a difference if your old paper element was flowing only a small portion of air, in which case you probably wouldn't be able to keep the engine running at all. The resonator changes the wave form of the air (sound) to counterbalance the sound of the air being drawn into the TB. Put your mouth over the edge of the resonator (assuming it is out of the car) and blow. This is similar to the sound you would hear if Hee-Haw was still on the air and you heard someone playing the "Jug". Not much sound, but it changes the tone of the music (if you want to call the sounds on Hee-Haw music). Until I get all the parts for my L Intake, I've taken off the airbox and resonator, put on a stainless steel highflow cone filter, sealed the resonator hole with duct tape, and wrapped the stock tube (and duct tape) with header wrap. It does sound more aggressive, adn the trottle response is better. The trottle response at 30+ mph is outstanding. I guess the air coming in from the battery access door is acting like a mini ram air. Of course all this will change when I get the parts, maybe make a Ram-air box, move the battery to the trunk and put in 24lb injectors . But I digress, the amount of air in the resonator won't provide enough combustable material to make a difference, and once the engine has gone thru one rotation, that air is long gone. Of course I work with Doctors and not mechanics so I could be hopelessly wrong (but wait I'm a "nobody" and "nobody's perfect" hahaha).
