Two thoughts on this thread. First, Be VERY careful how and where you
relocate the air intake. Below the front bumper is so low that you are in
*danger* of picking up enough water from a puddle to suffer hydraulic lock.
Trust me, rods do bend and break. My oldest son found this out in an '81
Jetta with stock air box configuration. 

Second, the horn (on the airbox) is most likely "tuned" for noise reduction,
not performance considerations.
