Got my £10 Billing induction cone on, so now have loadsa space.

Under the airbox, hidden behind the bumper and arch lining there's a clear-y coloured box - what the **** does this do?! As far as I can tell it's sealed, so why is there an entrance to the airbox from it?

Secondly, how do I get it out?

under the air box is a black pipe - that leads to a box!!


rip that out with some BFI (brut force and ignorance) and stick a cold air feed in and you get more noise and better performance??

Yeah pretty much what Reece + Paul said -

Havnt yet taken mine out as I was feeling lazy, but having jacked it up, you have to take arch lining off - then it's 2 bolts and possibly some plastic plugs too. Looks a tight fit though ... hopefully don't have to take the entire bumper off?

I used the same method taking out the standard cold air feed, had done loads of work and coulnt be bothered taking the grille/lights whatever else off to get to the bolts so ripped the fooker out. Now got 2 nice cold air feeds running to the grille :) Im thinking that resonator box will be coming out for a third air feed.

Just parked on a curb, turned wheel to the right, yanked the f*cker out! Took about 7mins lol then took a feed off a robin reliant and stuck it down the hole and tied it behind the bumper, quality little cars :nod:
